It’s 5 o’Clock Somewhere Flag

April 7, 1933

The Cullen-Harrison Act was passed before Prohibition of alcohol was repealed in the U.S. It was widely believed that ratifying the proposed 21st Amendment to repeal National Prohibition might take years. However, there was strong popular support to permit the consumption of beverages with a low alcoholic content even sooner. Prohibition was creating serious problems and it was strongly opposed. It was also thought that producing beer would immediately increase needed employment during the Depression. And, of course, it would generate needed tax revenue.

The President said he deemed passage of the law ‘to be of the highest importance.’ Congress acted quickly. The Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law on March 22, 1933. It became effective on April 7, 1933. April 7 is now National Beer Day.
