National Beer Day: Top Beers in South Dakota

Posted by Nate Wek on

Today is National Beer Day in the United States. It’s an undocumented holiday that became famous when Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act on April 7, 1933. This act legalized the sale of beer with an alcohol content of 3.2% in the United States, and therefore, National Beer Day was born.

Each state then passed their own laws to allow the sale of 3.2% beer to their citizens and over time, other beer and liquor laws were passed. It was thought (at the time) that beer with a 3.2% alcohol content was too low for intoxication to occur.

How will you celebrate National Beer Day in South Dakota? In honor of this annual occasion, here are some of the top beers in South Dakota.
