Recognized nationwide among beer enthusiasts, National Beer Day is an unofficial holiday in the United States celebrated every year on April 7, and marking the day in 1933, the first day in 13 years, that people could legally buy, sell, and drink beer.  National Beer Day is a celebration of the Cullen–Harrison Act being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. Upon signing the legislation, Roosevelt made his famous remark, "I think this would be a good time for a beer." The law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer containing up to 3.2% alcohol by weight in states that had enacted their own law allowing such sales. People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, some beginning the night before. On that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the future holiday.  Today, April 7 is recognized as National Beer Day and April 6 is known as New Beer's Eve.

Thursday, April 7th, exclusively during dinner service.  Dinner is served from 4 PM to 11 PM at El Centro D.F. (both 14th Street and Georgetown); from 5 PM to 10 PM at Masa 14; from 5 PM to 10 PM at Zengo; from 5 PM to 10 PM at Toro Toro, and from 4 PM to 10 PM at La Sandia.
