Yes, the "Repeal Day" they mention in this press release is a different date from the "Repeal Day" I blogged about in December. The difference is that the April 7th date corresponds to when the prohibition of beer only was repealed—i.e., Prohibition (with a captial P) was partially repealed, with 3.2% alcohol beer, in April, and the full meal deal was December 5th.

I think Lagunitas‘ The Hairy Eyeball takes a prize for one of the best (strangest?) names for a beer. I know I picked up a six-pack based on the name.
