This is our first new beer to come out on the centennial anniversary of the beginning of prohibition in the US. In the 1920’s, speakeasys were the place to go for a social drink. On at least one occassion during that decade, the Akron police caught bootleggers down on Howard Street, seizing a still and a stash of hooch as recorded by the Summit County Historical Society.
