Advent Beer Calendar 2010: Day 5: Fireside Chat

Here in the United States, December 5th is regarded as Repeal Day—the day the 21st Amendment to our Constitution was ratified, which repealed the 18th Amendment—thus ending the “Noble Experiment” of Prohibition in the U.S. To commemorate the anniversary I decided to pick a beer from San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery: Fireside Chat.
