21st Amendment Brewery is thrilled to host The Session in December, and we’ve chosen a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts: the repeal of Prohibition. December 5 is the 75th Anniversary, which brought beer back to the masses.
In 1920, there were thousands of breweries across America making unique, hand-crafted beer. The passage of Prohibition wiped out this great culture. On December 5, 1933, the states ratified the 21st Amendment, repealing the 18th Amendment, thus ending 13 years of Prohibition in America. At the 21st Amendment Brewery, the repeal of Prohibition means we can celebrate the right to brew beer, the freedom to be innovative, and the obligation to have fun.
What does the repeal of Prohibition mean to you? How will you celebrate your right to drink beer?
I don’t think I’ve seen a more perfect topic; it actually falls on Repeal Day on the 75th anniversary of the end of Prohibition. That’s like a perfect storm of beer blogging.
