Some prohibition era homebrew supplies
« on: April 16, 2013, 06:56:13 AM »
Saw this today on Shorpy:


Washington, D.C., circa 1926. "Thomas R. Shipp Co. -- S.A. Gatti stand, Center Market." Offering malt extract, wine jelly and hops, three items for your Prohibition-era shopping list.

There was a beer stein and breweriana auction here last Sunday. One of the items was a prohibition-era can of Red Top malt extract. I was not there to find out how much it went for.

I named my brewery after my cat, Moose. He's Siamese.
