Cheers to Beer in Downtown Tempe
Beer. Frank the Tank from the movie Old School describes it like this: “Once it hits your lips, it’s so good!”, or maybe it’s best described in the crafty brew crowd favorite movie, Beerfest: “I wish it were winter and we could make it into ice blocks and skate on it and then melt it in the springtime and drink it”. People love beer. In fact, according to the National Today data team, 47% of people surveyed declared beer as the most popular bar drink. So let’s celebrate beer and lucky for us, April 7 is National Beer Day in the United States. For the history geeks out there, National Beer Day celebrates the day in 1933 that the Cullen-Harrison act was signed into law, reversing the prohibition on selling beer in the United States and then in 2009, a Virginian man named Justin Smith decided to commemorate this historic day, and created his own unofficial National Beer Day. Don’t you just love people who declare their own day? We sure do! Let’s join in with Justin’s celebration-because there is no better place to honor the nectar of the gods than in Downtown Tempe.
