happy unofficial repeal of prohibition day!

on this date in 1933, the beer revenue act went into effect. the beer revenue act was an interim law put into place by franklin delano roosevelt, a.k.a. our biggest presidential bro, as a middle man between the legal end of prohibition (signed into law in march 1933) and the date the new amendment would actually be ratified into law. the beer revenue act allowed americans to once again legally purchase booze as an emergency measure until the original amendment illegalizing our favorite of drugs no longer was valid.

raise many a glass to fdr tonight. he was a man who not only ended prohibition, but made it legal to drink while we were waiting for that bullshit to end as well.
