 April 6, Harrisburg, Pa. – Local video production company, GK Visual, announced they will run a special on Friday, April 7 in celebration of National Beer Day to assist with crowdfunding for their documentary project, Poured in PA.

National Beer Day is celebrated every year on April 7. It marks the day in 1933 when the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted after being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, as he remarked, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”

The act allowed people to buy, sell and drink beer containing up to 4% ABV. This was one of the first steps toward ending prohibition, and it is said that people celebrated by gathering outsides of breweries.

“To mark this day, we are making a push to raise $4,000 in one day,” said Nate Kresge, GK Visual co-owner and executive producer. “Help us celebrate the return of beer to the United States.”

Those who support Poured on National Beer Day also will be entered to win a pair of tickets to the company’s Post-Beer Week Hangover Brunch, a fundraiser to be held Sunday, April 30 at the GK Visual office in Midtown Harrisburg. The event will feature sneak previews of Poured, guest speakers from local breweries, brunch and craft beer, among other perks.

“We are looking to the beer community to rally behind us and help us get this film made, and we hope to have a great bit of fun while we do it” Kresge said.
