We're bringing our Base Camp shenanigans to the Twin Cities for an amazing week of specialty beer tastings, beer and food pairings, and appearances by Woody, our giant beer barrel on wheels. Deschutes brewers, ambassadors and fanatics will be on hand to provide some in-the-trenches insight into our courageously crafted brews.
The lukewarm reputation of American beer during the 20th century was due in large part to Prohibition. From 1920 to 1933 Americans could not enjoy their beverage of choice. In desperation, bootleggers watered down their black market beer to increase profits, altering the palette of Americans for decades to come. At least 800 breweries were shut down in the United States during Prohibition, and independent breweries continued to close for the next fifty years.
