(NBC) — Tuesday is National Beer Day, an unofficial holiday recognized among beer enthusiasts. It was 82 years ago today that the Cullen-Harrison Act took effect, ending prohibition. President Franklin Roosevelt signed the act, which allowed Americans to legally buy beer again for the first time in 13 years.
It’s now a multibillion-dollar industry.
A new survey from Wakefield Research and “Let’s Grab a Beer” asked beer drinkers with whom they’d most like to have a beer. More Americans chose NBC’s own Jimmy Fallon than any other celebrity.
