Have Some Watermelon with Your Watermelon Tomorrow

In 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution repealed the 18th Amendment that had established prohibition 13 years earlier in January of 1920.  In 2000, Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan founded the 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco’s historic South Park neighborhood.

Their intentions were to make hand crafted beers and great food in an environment that pays homage to a culture forced into the underground in the first quarter of the 20th Century.  Fortunately for us on the East Coast, their beer has good distribution.

21st Amendment makes a seasonal summer beer called Hell or High Watermelon.  It's available from April to September in six-packs and on tap.  It's a classic American wheat beer that incorporates watermelon into the secondary fermentation.  The result is a super light, crisp, refreshing brew that will go nicely with your BBQ tomorrow.
