    An unofficial beer holiday that gives me an excuse to have a beer with lunch? I'll allow it.

    To truly honor the tradition, one must imbibe in a 4% beer (I'll take anything less than 5% as an attempt...) offering. I challenge people to list what beer they will have in order to celebrate accurately...

    Think I'll pick up a Pilsner Urquell (4.4%)

    :rolling_eyes: As usual with a Wiki entry, not quite accurate or subject to much primary research, as shown by this AP report at the time:

    Most states also had a variety of prohibition laws at the time, so for 3.2 beer to be legal, a state had to repeal or amend their own laws as well.

    So, all you residents of those other states, you're gonna have to wait to celebrate...:stuck_out_tongue:

    I'll have a Logboat Mamoot. It's an English Mild Ale with an ABV of 3.6%.

    Do we really need a special day to drink beer? As long as I am taking in oxygen it is a special day!

    There are so many useless holidays on the calendar - National this day, National that day, Hallmark holidays, etc.
    So why isn't National Beer Day on my calendar?

    If you consider inflation, I believe up to 10% would be appropriate.

    Anyone else surprised that Massachusetts wasn't among the first 19 states? Whatever, I'm celebrating anyways :slight_smile:

    I will enjoy some Bear Republic Tartare on tap, fits the 4.0% cap perfectly, and is damn tasty.

    It's also my birthday! I'd open one now if I didn't have a class later.

    Well, now you've given me the motivation to crack open my Trinity Oh Face Saison (4.8%)

    I know. But with seasonal beers coming out months before their season, they might as well.
