April 7th is marked as the beginning to the real end of prohibition. On April 7, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill that would allow people to brew and sell beer as long as it remained below 4% ABV. This was the first time in over 13 years that people could legally drink in the US.

Today, we have a brewery in almost every mid-sized city and distilleries popping up as well. So raise a responsible glass and toast to FDR for allowing us to do what we have been doing for centuries. "Have A Beer!"
