There are currently more than 8000 breweries operating in the United States, ranging in size from massive conglomerate corporations to tiny, microbreweries. However, making, selling, and consuming beer in the US was technically prohibited until almost a century ago. Since Prohibition was repealed in 1933, America has resumed its beer-drinking culture, and it has done so successfully.
The occasion to savour and commemorate this blessed and renowned beverage is National American Beer Day!
When is National American Beer Day
Every year on October 27, the nation celebrates National American Beer Day, honouring the rich heritage of brewing in this country.
National American Beer Day History
Actually, the history of American Beer predates that of the United States of America as a nation! In fact, Native Americans undoubtedly started brewing a mildly alcoholic maize ale at least 1000 years ago, long before immigrants from Europe came to the area with the purpose of settling it and making it the United States of America.
Beer has played a significant role in American culture and survival from the country’s founding. The first official ship carrying Pilgrim settlers, the Mayflower, would have brought beer to Massachusetts. As neighbourhood breweries were being established, the beer continued to be imported from Europe.
Beer was even consumed by women and children, frequently with a very low alcohol volume of only approximately 1%, as the water was occasionally hazardous to drink.
Home brewing was fairly common when what is now the US was originally colonized, but it was also rather dangerous because of the possibility of flames starting. The first instance of a commercial brewery producing American beer was in New Amsterdam, which would later become New York, and dates to 1632.
National American Beer Day aims to remember and celebrate both the past and present of American beer, which has been around for many hundred years. National American Beer Day is more focused than National Beer Day, which is observed in April to mark the day the 18th Amendment abolished Prohibition. It has to do with American Beer, not just any beer!
American beers are typically brewed as an “adjunct pilsner,” meaning that some of the malted barley is actually replaced with either rice or maize, making them a little bit lighter than the deep, dark beers that can be found in many regions of Europe. As a result, the beer is thinner, less robust, and lacks the robust hop flavour that distinguishes many of its European competitors.

American Beer gives beer consumers many reasons to celebrate because it has a distinctive flavour all its own. Brewing firms in the US have a lot to offer when it comes to beer, with a long history that includes brands like Samuel Adams, Budweiser, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium Fat Tire.
In actuality, several beers that are seen as being foreign are also American. Since they are all made in the United States, Killian’s Irish Red, Foster’s Lager, Beck’s, and Kirin are also considered American Beers.
On National American Beer Day, prepare to savour and appreciate everything associated with this venerable commodity.
