Pre-Prohibition Beer from Miller Coming to Cleveland, Here's Where You Can Get It

Posted By on Thu, May 10, 2012 at 12:45 PM


MillerCoors stumbled on a brew recipe used before Prohibition, a minor score they say because lots of beer recipes from that era disappeared once booze was banned.

“Many recipes were lost when Prohibition banned beer in 1919 and we’re thrilled to be able to bring beer drinkers a taste of the past,” brewmaster Manny Manuele said in a prepared statement. “When we uncovered this recipe, we knew we had something special and the great response has allowed us to share it with even more fans."

The brew was rolled out in select cities two years ago, but is just now making it's way to thirsty Clevelanders. Starting this month, this is where you can find it (via the ABJ):

Cleveland: Midtown Booths, ParkView Nite Club, Speakeasy at Bier Markt, Major Hoopples River Bed Cafe, The Lincoln Park Pub, The 1899 Pub, Becky's Bar & Grill, ABC the Tavern, The Greenville Inn, Riverwood Café, Eastland Inn, Kenilworth Tavern, Tradesman Tavern, Cedar Lee Pub and Grill, The Wild Goose, Pickles and Pints, and Reddstone.
