Isn't today a Federal Holiday?

Why are we at work right now? Do people not realize that today is the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition of beer?

Yes, on April 7th, 1933, eight months before the ratification of good ol' veinte y uno, the 21st amendment, that repealed the 18th amendment which had called for national prohibition, breweries got a jumpstart and started brewing away.

God bless America.
