2nd Most High Holy Day of Extreme Magnitude

This day in history, April 7, 1933, Prohibition is repealed for beer!

Beer, making people happy, including this lady who's about to down 6.
Though December is the repeal of prohibition altogether via the ratification of the 21st amendment (December 5, 1933, to be exact), FDR's signature on this bill certainly paved the way for total repeal.

This bill wasn't perfect; it only allowed beers to be 3.2% or less ABV, but we can with all honesty say that yet again, beer led a revolution and became the first legal alcoholic beverage since the ratification of the18th amendment in January of 1919 and the passage of the Volstead Act later that year (October).

So hoist a pint of beer tonight...for beer!
