FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Beer enthusiasts throughout Fairfield County can unite and raise a pint on Tuesday in honor of National Beer Day.

National Beer Day marks the 82nd anniversary of the Cullen-Harrison Act, which made it legal to buy and drink beer in the United States again after 13 years of Prohibition.

The act didn't completely repeal Prohibition, but it loosened the restrictions on beer, allowing the sale of beer with less than 4 percent alcohol by volume.

Prohibition wasn't fully repealed until Dec. 5, 1933, with the passage of the 21st Amendment.
