Default Important day for us all!

Just wanted to remind everyone here of December 5th 1933. I think it ought to be a national holiday, but we here at least should pay our respects and use it as an excuse to drink more beer!

Not sure what it is? Shame on you!

A sad say in the history of this country. Prohibition was working so well...

I'll hoist one (or more - probably more) the day before and the day after, but I'm probably not going to get a chance to toast the end of prohibition at my daughter's 6th birthday party.

More important to me is 10-14-1978. That's the day Jimmy Carter signed the law making homebrewing legal again. I know, the law didn't take effect till '79...........

More important? Without the repeal of prohibition homebrew would still be illegal! I respect your point though, it would be sad if alcohol was legal but we couldn't home brew!

Enjoy the day ohiobrutus! (I would be surprised if you did not have even 1 brew though)

I still say that April 7 is a more important date, as beer was re-legalized on that date in 1933 - December 5 was when prohibition was repealed entirely. Who cares about all the other varieties of alcohol?
Of course, I could be a bit biased as April 7 is my birthday...
