1933, Prohibition comes to an end. What the hell were they thinking? In the history of the United States, Prohibition is the period from 1920 to 1933, during which the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol for consumption were banned nationally as mandated in the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. On March 23, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt signed into law an amendment to the Volstead Act known as the Cullen-Harrison Act, allowing the manufacture and sale of certain kinds of alcoholic beverages.
Crash of 29, Snap wearing gear from ear to ankle, people losing their jobs, minds, will to live...and NO FCKING SUDS? FDR, you were a smart man...lord knows it took Pearl Harbor to get us fully involved in WWII, and I am sure we had our reasons...but what took you so long to ratify prohibition. We Built this city on rock and roll, and Suds. Times were tough then, times are tough now...but people, at least we have our Sippin. Enjoy the weekend. Crack a Sud today and ease your mind...if only for a moment.
