About

On the fateful 16th day of January 1920, thousands of Americans set out to purchase their last legal alcoholic drinks for the next 13 years. Throughout those rough, dry years in America, the courageous bootleggers and rum-runners stepped up to fill the void by brewing beer and liquor and distributing it to their loyal customers illegally.

Desperate Times Brewery channels the inner spirit of the brewmasters and beer drinkers from the prohibition era to create a risky and adventurous variety of beers inspired by the desperation of the times. We strive to carry on the longstanding American tradition of brewing high quality beer using only the best ingredients available.
