2013 21st Amendment’s “Repeal Day” Party
Thursday, December 5, 2013 | 4 pm
21st Amendment Brewery, 563 2nd St., SF
FREE, but a secret password is required
- 4 pm: March Against Prohibition
Meet at Justin Herman Plaza and join the parade which will include a marching band, picket signs, and revelers in prohibition-era 1930s clothing
- Repeal Day Tapping & Party
When the parade reaches the 21A, co-founders Shaun O’Sullivan and Nico Freccia will ring the bell to signify the end of prohibition and the flow of beer. They will then tap six cask-conditioned kegs of Firkin beer (for purchase. Sorry, there’s no 5 cent beer like in years’ past), while an eight piece Dixieland band provides live music and historic announcements.
- Password-Only Speakeasy
The upstairs Brewer’s Loft will be converted to a password-only Speakeasy complete with prohibition-era cocktails and casino games for charity.
Parade and party participants are encouraged to dress in Prohibition-era costumes from the ’20s and ’30s. Everyone will be rewarded with complimentary Three Twins Ice Cream made with 21A’s Fireside Chat Winter Spiced Ale.
It will be a night of dressing up, special prohibition era cocktails, swing and jazz music and celebrating the ratification of the 21st Amendment. And if you have to ask why this particular bar is celebrating Repeal Day, you probably shouldn’t even show up.
