Good Morning,

The stars have aligned: Today, the day of Palmer Place Fest, is National Beer Day.

And you have President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to thank for it.

After signing into law the Cullen-Harrison Act, which effectively ended prohibition, in the spring of 1933, FDR famously said it “would be a good time for a beer.”

The law went into effect on April 7 of that year. That’s how April 7 became National Beer Day.

Little Fish Brewing Co. has a bottle release scheduled for Saturday afternoon if you can wait a day to celebrate. They’ll release sour amber ale with raspberries and farmhouse ale at their Athens location, and a “Strhubarb” wheat ale regionally.

“In general, there are great local brews to be had anywhere, and I encourage people to support their local brewery,” Jimmy Stockwell, co-founder of Little Fish, said.
