April is North Carolina Beer Month. Established for the first time in 2013, the state's growing interest in craft beer, microbreweries and homebrewing has really taken to new heights.
As a matter of fact, on this day (April 7) in 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law, allowing sales of beer with alcohol content of 3.2% or less. Later in the year, the 18th amendment was repealed by the 21st amendment, effectively ending prohibition.
