Today everybody should grab a beer and toast to the beginning of the end of The Great Experiment. Beer was legal during Prohibition but only what was called “near beer” which means it’s alcohol content was .05%. On this day 78 years ago the Volstead Act was changed to allow the sale and production of 3.2% beer. While that still seems low by today’s standards, at that time was a huge victory and within 8 months helped lead to the repeal of Prohibition. So tonight grab a beer and toast the end of “near beer”.
