Every year on April 7, Americans do their patriotic duty and celebrate National Beer Day. Granted, it’s not technically considered a national holiday, but still, there are few things better than sipping on some beer and watching baseball or complaining about politics.

Actually, one thing is better: sipping on some discounted beer. So it’s a good thing that companies and businesses around the U.S. recognize National Beer Day, even if the federal government does not.
