New Beer's Eve & National Beer Day Walking Tours

  • Downtown York 34 West Philadelphia Street York, PA, 17401 United States (map)

This weekend marks a very special time for beer culture- on April 7, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted in the United States, which allowed the sale of beer with a maximum 3.2% alcohol content level. Signing this Act was one of the first things FDR did during his presidency. It resulted in one of his famous quotes, "I think this would be a good time for a beer."

FDR was also the first person to get a batch of the newly legal beer- everyone else waited patiently while it was delivered from city to city. An estimated 1.5 million gallons of beer were drank in celebration that day!

In today's society, April 6 is known as New Beer's Eve and April 7 is known as National Beer Day- both those dates happen to fall on a Saturday & Sunday this year, so we will be hosting very special tours this weekend to celebrate!

P.S. Rumor has it you'll earn a special badge on Untapped when you check in a beer on April 7!
