Today is National Beer Day, and the date actually isn't random. On April 7th, 1933, FDR took the first major step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that would allow people to brew and distribute beer in the U.S.

Anyway, maybe today would be a good occasion to have a beer. What's that? You were going to drink 10 of them anyway? Well that's lucky timing.

A survey in honor of the holiday asked people who drink beer how many they put down during the average week.

65% have one to four beers a week, 18% have around one beer a day, 12% have more like two or three a day, and 5% put down more than 21 beers a week, which means an average of more than three a day.
