(NBC) - Thursday is National Beer Day -- an unofficial holiday recognized among beer enthusiasts to celebrate the end of prohibition.

It was 83 years ago that the Cullen-Harrison Act took effect and allowed Americans to legally buy beer again for the first time in 13 years.

Beer is now a multi-billion dollar industry.

A new survey from Wakefield Research, on behalf of the site Let's Grab A Beer, asked beer drinkers with whom they'd most like to have a beer.

Americans said they would like to have a cold brew with Tina Fey, who narrowly beat out last year's choice of Jimmy Fallon.
