”Learning to home brew beer would be a great thing to do,„ said Ray Daniels, director of publications for the Brewers Association. ”A five-gallon batch only takes about two hours to brew and five gallons would give you about 8 to 10 six-packs.” You’ll also want to stock up on Caribbean rum, Canadian whiskey and English gin, all of which were popular imported drinks in the speakeasies of the 1920s. Just be sure to store the booze in the bathtub or under a loose floorboard in case your party’s raided. And make sure all your guests know how to sneak out the back door.
