Prost to the 21st!

In case you’ve forgotten today is the 76th year that liquor has been legal in the US. The Volstead Act was passed on October 28 1919. By January of 1933 the Cullen-Harrison Act had actually made sessionable beers legal in the us, so the 21st wasn’t actually what made beer legal. So today raise a glass to the complete end of prohibition and remember Roosevelt’s words still ring true, “What America needs now is a drink.”

CapitolTaps has a good writeup about the 21st.
sorry about that. I did plan on linking, but I only had a few minutes to write something and spaced it

    Jared, how about a link! If you’re interested in how Salem greeted the 21st amendment (and I know, gentle reader, you might not be so interested, not everyone is), see news clips here.
