WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Beer enthusiasts throughout Westchester County will unite and raise a pint 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.

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

Prohibition wasn't fully repealed until Dec. 5 of the same year with the passage of the 21st Amendment.
