Ability to Drink Legal Booze Still Worth Celebrating

Today marks the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition, and to celebrate, Slate is running a series of pics documenting the highs and lows of fun-juice. Below is just one of the many fantastic photographs.

The only info given is that this was taken in the United States in 1947. The beer appears to be Goebel Beer, which was brewed in Detroit Michigan when this photo was taken. Coincidentally, Goebel's mascot was a bantam, or as it was more commonly known, "the Brewster Rooster," the very thing that wakes us up every morning. No explaination is given for the mascot choice, but we assume it's because if you're drunk you'll pronounce "Goebel" as "Gobble." Below is a picture of the demon who won't let us sleep.
