21st Amendment Turns 79!
Happy Repeal Day!
On this day, in 1933, the 21st Amendment passed, whereby repealing the 18th Amendment which had banned alcoholic beverages. And look how far the beer, wine, and spirits industry has come! I am extremely grateful and plan to celebrate with good beer, good company, and good music.
“When the glass is full,
Drink up! Drink up!
This maybe the last time
We see this cup.
If God wanted us sober,
He’d knock the glass over,
So while it is full we drink up!”
~from Jason Webley’s Drinking Song (2002)
