San Francisco is a city that loves its libations. So it's probably not really surprising that we're hosting a few Prohibition-repeal events, namely a parade this afternoon led by the 21st Amendment Brewery folks. Details on the events behind the jump.
On Dec. 5, 1933, after 13 long years of bad homebrew and bathtub gin, the states ratified the 21st Amendment, which abolished the 18th Amendment, ending prohibition in America. To celebrate this momentous day, we're hosting Repeal Prohibition Week at 21st Amendment Brewery.
