Kentucky beer lovers are cheering the start of April and the arrival of the brewery named after our country’s 21st Amendment to end Prohibition!
Brew Free! Or Die IPA starts big and finishes clean with a deep golden color, three different hops to the nose and a solid malt “backbone.” Other 21st Amendments favorites are El Sully, Hell or High Watermelon, Blood Orange IPA and a fun 15-can variety pack.
The brewery was founded in 2000 by a Shaun O’Sullivan and Nico Freccia, a couple of “transplants” to San Francisco who met at a summer class on brewing science at UC Davis. They researched the history of brewing in San Francisco and were smitten with the fact that the city had more than 40 neighborhood breweries in the early 1900’s before Prohibition.
Today the brewery has a production facility and tasting room in San Leandro, and its popular brewpub is located in the shadows of the San Francisco Giants baseball stadium.
Welcome to the Blue Grass state!
