Gin drinks for a quarter

TuB will mark the 78th anniversary of the Cullen-Harrison Act with a special at five watering holes.

Gin drinks for a quarter


TuB, the Philly-rooted premium gin, will mark the 78th anniversary of the Cullen-Harrison Act by offering throwback-priced 25-cent gin drinks on Thursday, April 7 at five watering holes: Franklin Mortgage & Investment on 18th Street, PYT in the Piazza at Schmidt's, Prohibition at 13th and Buttonwood, South Philly Taproom at 15th and Mifflin, and Grey Lodge on Frankford near Harbison. Hours will vary.

Um, the Cullen-Harrison Act?

It was the move that spelled the beginning of the end of Prohibition by allowing beer and wine to contain 3.2 percent alcohol. FDR signed it into law April 7, 1933.
