Bristol Brewing Co. will mark the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition on April 7 with a celebration in the brewery’s tasting room, 1647 S.Tejon St., with the release of the warm-weather beer EdgeCity Pilsner.
Pints of the seasonal brew will go for 33 cents from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. There also will be a costume contest and a screening of "The American Brew: The Rich and Surprising History of Beer in America," a documentary produced by Ken Burns and RogerSherman scheduled to premiere on the A&E network that evening.
“To me, it’s a chance not only to commemorate the occasion by enjoying a fresh, tasty beer, but also to acknowledge the positive impact breweries and their beer have on our economy and culture today, which is something most people don’t think about,” said Mike Bristol. Bristol Brewing Company was founded in Colorado Springs in 1994 by Mike and Amanda Bristol.
