The Top 10 Beer Fun Facts For National Beer Day
Today is National Beer Day, and the date actually isn't random. On April 7th, 1933, FDR took the first major step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that would allow people to brew and distribute beer in the U.S.

A survey in honor of the holiday asked people who drink beer how many they put down during the average week.
65% have one to four beers a week, 18% have around one beer a day, 12% have more like two or three a day, and 5% put down more than 21 beers a week, which means an average of more than three a day.
