Happy Repeal Day!

Happy Repeal Day!

Prohibition ended seventy-six years ago today with the ratification of the 21st Amendment. Well, national prohibition anyway. It merely returned control to the states and of course local prohibition remains in places even today.

It's not officially a holiday, but it should be. I, for one, will be celebrating by raising a pint of something dark and oakey at Brouwer's Big Wood festival tonight.
