Happy Repeal Day - Bottles Getting Ready to Roll...
Friday 05 December 2008 Filed in: Beer Culture | Hellsmoke Porter
December 5th is "Repeal Day"
It's the 75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, which lasted almost 15 years
(January 16th, 1919 --- December 5, 1933).
Part of the platform that Franklin Roosevelt ran on in 1932 was the repeal of Prohibition.

"I think that this would be a good time to have a beer."
-President Franklin D. Roosevelt, December 5, 1933

I've been bottling up that first official batch of Hellsmoke Porter, and am getting ready to roll 'em out the door at last.
Also, my commercial kegs finally arrived yesterday, so tapped offerings are now possible. News of where and when coming soon.
