Brew Year's Eve @ Captain Lawrence Brewery
"Brew Year's Eve celebrates the eve of the modification of the Volstead Act which raised the legal alcohol percentage of beverages from .05 percent to 3.2 percent, allowing some beers to be legal once again on April 7, 1933. Over 1.5 million barrels of beer was consumed during the first 24-hours after the modification of the act!
Eight months later, the 21st Amendment was ratified, ending Prohibition after nearly 13 years. Only half of America's breweries survived to see the end of Prohibition, which came on December 5, 1933." -By Meghan Storey (Craftbeer.com)
So in honor of this historic day we are celebrating with '30's style music, cocktail hour style food, CLBC beer & barrel aged beer cocktails all ending with a very special pilot batch brewed ale toast at midnight.
This also marks our first S.I.N night (service industry night), since it falls on a Monday and that is pretty much a going out night for the hospitality industry.
