FLYING DOG BREWERY TO CELEBRATE BREW YEARâ€™S EVE WITH SPECIAL MIDNIGHT BREWERY TOUR
On April 7, Americaâ€™s craft brewers will host â€˜Brew Yearâ€™s Eveâ€™ celebrations recognizing the repeal of prohibition for beer. Flying Dog Brewery will add to the festivities with a special Midnight Tour of their brewery in Denverâ€™s Ballpark Neighborhood on the night of April 6th. Flying Dogâ€™s neighboring bar, the Blake Street Tavern, will also be taking part in the celebration by offering pints of Flying Dogâ€™s â€œLitter of Alesâ€ for a special price of $2.00.
April 7th was chosen as the date to celebrate â€˜Brew Yearâ€™s Eveâ€™ because it was on this date in 1933 that newly elected President Roosevelt spurred Congress to modify the Volstead Act, thus allowing the legal consumption of beer of a specific alcohol strength. This was eight months before the December 5 repeal of prohibition for other liquors. Thus â€˜Brew Yearâ€™s Eveâ€™ celebrates a time when beer was the lone legal libation.
Flying Dogâ€™s Director of Marketing, Neal Stewart, says that a brewery tour is a great way to celebrate beerâ€™s rich history. â€œOur brewery tours are unique in that we allow consumers to have a very up-close, personal and educational experience and our tours on â€˜Brew Yearâ€™s Eve will place a special emphasis on the history of brewing,â€ said Stewart.
â€œThis date is a chance to say that enjoying beer is a legal privilege. On April 7, Americaâ€™s communities of craft brewers plan to celebrate this and the history of beer in our culture,â€ said Julia Herz, spokesperson for the Brewerâ€™s Association, the not-for-profit trade association for
Americaâ€™s small brewers.
Both the Flying Dog Brewery and Blake Street Tavern are located at the corner of 24th and Blake, two blocks north of Coors Field in Downtown Denver, CO. Brewery tours will be offered on April 6th at 10:00 p.m., 11:00 p.m., and 12:00 Midnight on April 7th. Space is limited to the first 30 participants and reservations can be made by emailing email@example.com.
