Photo: When the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect at 12: 01 AM on 7 April 1933, thirsty customers could buy a beer that was 3.2 percent alcohol by weight instead of the “near beer” they had suffered with all through Prohibition. The public lined up on “New Beer’s Eve” (Apr 6) at breweries in 20 states and Washington, DC, and purchased 1.5 million barrels. 7 April has remained an unofficial holiday celebrating beer in the US.
