Homer vs 18th Amendment Prize Breakdown: Bathtub Brewery

Aloha Amazing, Awesome, Aspiring Alcoholics and Ale Addicts,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “A”)


The Eighteenth Amendment (Amendment XVIII) of the United States Constitution effectively established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages in the United States by declaring the production, transport, and sale of alcohol (though not the consumption or private possession) illegal. The separate Volstead Act set down methods for enforcing the Eighteenth Amendment, and defined which “intoxicating liquors” were prohibited, and which were excluded from prohibition (e.g., for medical and religious purposes). President Woodrow Wilson vetoed the bill, but the House of Representatives overrode the veto, and the Senate did so as well the next day. The Volstead Act set the starting date for nationwide prohibition for January 17, 1920, which was the earliest day allowed by the Eighteenth Amendment. The Amendment was in effect for the following 13 years. It was repealed in 1933 by ratification of the Twenty-First Amendment on December 5, 1933.

That’s enough of a history lesson!

Where Did That Come From? – Duff Float, Bathtub Brewery, Howard K Duff and More…

Let’s just start off with the reality that St. Patrick’s Day is pretty much a huge drunk-fest.  The real origins have long been forgotten, and in the hotbed of  American Irish Catholic cities (NYC, Boston, Pittsburgh etc.), it is a weirdly non-Christian/Christian celebration with a history of exclusion that makes one scratch his head…but, mostly because his head is numb from drinking too much green beer. It gets even more convoluted on Columbus Day…but, that is an entirely different kind of alcohol, without the food coloring. But, I digress…

The episode on which most of the St. Patrick’s Day/Homer -vs-The 18th Amendment Green/Beer/Shamrock stuff, is from an episode of the same name. No. Not Shamrock Stuff…but, Homer vs the 18th Amendment (S8E18).  

You wanna have a full-blown…real-deal booze fest?  Then buckle in kids…because this episode is loaded…as in smashedtrashed…and besotted.
