If there’s one thing that we know for certain, it’s the fact that there are a lot of beer holidays. National Beer Day is a holiday that’s observed every year on April 7th to commemorate the enactment of the Cullen-Harrison Act in 1933. We’re not going to talk about that holiday, however.
Instead, we’re going to talk about the holiday that proceeds this holiday. That holiday is known as New Beer’s Eve and it’s celebrated every year on the 6th of April. This is a great day for people to enjoy some great beer as they celebrate two beer holidays in a row.

Observing New Beer’s Eve
Well, we probably don’t need to explain that New Beer’s Eve, just like National Beer Day, is a holiday that’s observed by enjoying some beer. Perhaps a lager or stout that a person might not ordinarily try any other time of the year. However, we feel that we should also mention that people should observe this holiday responsibly.
This means not overindulging and never ever operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. And while a person is safely observing this holiday, they should be sure to use the hashtag #NewBeersEve to spread the word about this holiday.
