Brewing, it’s in the blood

So I got an interesting story from my grandmother recently…

According to her, my great grandparents brewed their own beer and spirits during prohibition times way back when!  Unfortunately my grandmother couldn’t remember too many specifics – I doubt my grandmother would have been born yet by this point either.

Supposedly, my great grandparents were brewing in their apartment’s bathtub, which was relatively common during prohibition days

Everything was going well until their brew started leaking into their downstairs neighbours, which I imagined put at least a temporary stop to things.  What lucky neighbours though to be getting free beer dripping from their ceiling!

Anyway, things finally stopped once prohibition laws were repealed.  Oh well!  At least I can say I have tradition of brewing in my family.
