Prohibition Repealed

They stopped the madness
Seventy four years ago
Raise your beer in thanks

Written by Captain Hops.

References: On December 5, 1933, conventions in Utah, Pennsylvania, and Ohio ratified the 21st amendment. Although approval from only 36 states was required, this brought the total number approving the amendment to 38 thus putting an end to Prohibition. Hat tips to Hop Talk and Hail the Ale for marking the occasion.
