On this day in 1933 the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified, thereby repealing the 18th Amendment, which banned the sale, distribution and consumption of alcohol. The 21st Amendment brought back the neighborhood local pub and brewery to the local fabric of our society where it justly belongs. Both Nico and I feel strongly that the pub we created on 2nd Street in San Francisco embodies that feeling, to celebrate the passage of this amendment and in general the right to be original. You can read more about the 21st Amendment and those times at Wikipedia and RepealDay.org.
We are throwing at party at the 21st Amendment tonight celebrating this day. We in fact think of it as a National holiday and tonight's party at our pub in San Francisco will include the 21A staff, and hopefully you as well, dressing up in 1920's attire, swing music, a 5PM tapping of the cask of "Repeal Day IPA" with special prohibition-era roll back prices. It's a very festive time. Get here!
Then the speakeasy opens at 6PM on the mezzanine with poker games for charity and special prohibition-era cocktails. But you will need the secret password to gain access to the upstairs speakeasy. We will tweet the password soon via Twitter and Facebook. You can follow us on Twitter and FaceBook
Thanks for your support,
Shaun and Nico
