We salute the fine men and women who drank underground during Prohibition with $5 Lagers 4pm-close. On this day in 1919, the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution’s ratification was certified, ushering in the Prohibition era and underground lager consumption.  When the National Prohibition Act went into effect, the Eppig family 'officially'  ceased operations. The brewery reincorporated as the Interboro Cereal Beverage Corporation and the operation was reportedly headed by Jacob Levy and his associate, the "Beer Baron of the Bronx."
