Prohibition shut down thousands of breweries and distilleries across America, but it could not eliminate the public’s desire for alcohol. It simply forced the brewing and distilling of booze into the shadows, where it became the purview of organized crime syndicates. Guests visiting the Museum’s distillery will learn about Prohibition-Era bootlegging and rum running amid a working distillery producing a variety of spirits.
