COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Breweries are honoring the end of the Prohibition Era exactly 90 years ago with National Beer Day on Friday.
The Cullen-Harrison Act, signed on April 7, 1933, permitted the manufacturing and sale of low-alcohol beers and wines after 13 years of Prohibition. Now, taprooms across the United States celebrate the historic turning point every April on National Beer Day.
