1933 CE
Alcohol prohibition ends in the United States

In 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act is signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It authorized the sale of 3.2% beer and wine, effectively ending years of prohibition in the United States. As a result, beer is legally on sale again since the beginning of Prohibition on January 16, 1920. Federal laws enforcing Prohibition were repealed after an amendment to the Act was fully ratified on December 5, 1933.
