Prohibition Taproom Events
Celebrate the Repeal of Prohibition at Prohibition Taproom!
This Wednesday, December 5 marks the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. Many bars will be doing something to celebrate, and you should take advantage! I know I will.
Prohibition Taproom is celebrating with Founders Brewing Co. beginning at 5 pm. They'll be serving up beer cocktails that were co-created by Jonathan McIntire of Founders and are made with each of the beers on tap. If you can guess the ingredients in your cocktail, you'll receive 2 free tickets to the American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition at the National Constitution Center.
They'll also have Curmudgeon and Backwoods Bastard (which I had the other night and can tell you alone is worth the visit!) in bottles, and you'll have the chance to hang with Mike Stevens, Founders co-founder, Michael Bell, and Bob Kaiser.
Best of all, there will be a toast at 9 pm with Bolt Cutter, a 15% ABV barely wine that was brewed to celebrate Founders 15th anniversary. Tickets are required for a pour, and go on sale at 5 pm on the 5th.
2nd Annual Holiday Roast with Don Russell, aka Joe Sixpack
Most beer drinkers in the city know Don Russell, aka Joe Sixpack, either through his weekly column in the Philadelphia Daily News, as an Executive Director of Philly Beer Week, from his blog or one of his 3 books, or just from having run in to him at any one of the many events he can be found at.
Don has agreed to be the guest of honor for Prohibition Taproom's 2nd annual holiday roast (last year it was Steve Mashington, and from all accounts, was a crazy good time).
Come join the fun on Tuesday, December 18th at 8 pm as Don is roasted (think Comedy Central-style roast) by Glen Macnow, Bob Warner, Tom Peters (via satellite), Tom Kehoe, Curt Decker, Ron Goldwyn, and more!!
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to Philabundance. Can't make the event but still want to donate to Philabundance? Prohibition Taproom is an official drop off point for food donations from December 1st to the 22nd.
