Drink up! It's National Beer Day.

It's celebrated every year on April 7.  It was on this day in 1933 when President Franklin Roosevelt took a step toward ending prohibition and signed a law allowing people to brew and sell beer in the U.S. under certain guidelines.

Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage.

To celebrate, the owners of HomeBrewUSA stopped by the News 3 studios to celebrate with the morning team by playing a game of beer trivia. Watch the video above to see how they did!

The Brewers Association says that most Americans now live within 10 miles of a craft brewer and Hampton Roads is home to quite a few!
