Gee, it only took them 75 years after the end of prohibition. Funny Utah was the last state to ratify the 21st Amendment that nullified the 18th Amendment and ended prohibition, but they aren't the last to allow homebrewing. It looks like a bit of progress has been made there. It seems people are finally realizing homebrewing is not synonimous with crack making.

Just to provide something of a contrarian view of the general "let's pile on Prohibition" tone of this thread, if you examine the history of the topic, there were reasons that Prohibition happened- real, honest-to-yeast rational reasons.....which I will not explore here, anyone interested in such history can easily find out for themselves.

Was Prohibition a good idea? It's merely preaching to the choir to state "probably not." Could it happen again? Emphatically yes! There is a movement of "New Drys" today; such organizations as M.A.D.D. have basically been hijacked from their original focus and become prohibitionists.

The tone accompanying a lot of "alcohol culture" (including, unfortunately, a percentage of homebrewers and the micro/craft brewing industry) tends to give ammunition to these people. The disclaimers accompanying lots of ads and commercials that state "drink responsibly" often do nothing to offset the tone of the advertising itself. The main support in government for alcohol may be ascribed solely to the expectation of, and fear of loss of revenue or employment, and has nothing to do with any right to consume alcohol.

We may be in a "golden age" of brewing now, from our limited perspective of what's happened to homebrewing or the micro/craft industry over the past several decades. But a more universal principle is "What goes around, comes around." This is something that huge numbers of people -worldwide- appear to have forgotten in the current slide into recession, but it is a consistent pattern throughout our history.

The ONLY good thing about Prohibition is that its advocates understood that it required an actual amendment to the Constitution. Unfortunately politicians these days prohibit drugs outside the realm of their constitutional authority.
