Cheers to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! When it's time to kick back with a cold one, why not sip your favorite adult beverage out of a set of pint glasses that salute the legal moves that made happy hours possible.
These 18th & 21st Amendment Glasses celebrate the two most important pieces of booze-related legislation in American history. The first glass replicates excerpts from the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which established the prohibition of alcohol and set up a tidal wave of bootleg liquor and underground speakeasies across the country. If you didn’t know the password, you weren’t getting into the party.
But then came the 21st Amendment, honored on the second glass. This article repealed the 18th Amendment, banishing prohibition for good and once again allowing the production, transportation, and consumption of "intoxicating liquors". In other words, it was once again time to kick up your heels and enjoy a tipple or two without hiding behind a locked door. Hooray!
Gift this set to a history buff who likes to settle in with a pint or two in the evenings or augment a glass aficionado’s collection with two new additions that are as fun as informative as they are functional. Cheers!
