St. Petersburg is filled to the brim with quality craft breweries and local watering holes, which makes finding a good spot to get a brew on National Beer Day an easy task.

This Wednesday, April 7, marks one of our favorite days of the year. It’s a great excuse to go out and support some of your favorite local breweries, but it’s got a little more to it than some other national “holidays” like National Sock Puppet Day.

On this day in 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt enacted a bill that legalized the sale of beer with an ABV of 3.2% and under, paving the way for the end of Prohibition.

Now that your history lesson for the day is over, we’ll get down to the good stuff. If you’re not familiar with the beer scene in St. Petersburg and want to join in on the festivities this National Beer Day, read on to learn about the best places to drink and be merry.
