Bathtub brew wasn't made in a tub, tasted nasty and was poisonous

THE QUESTION arises: Are you really going to make beer in a bathtub at the Bathtub Beer Fest?
Philly Beer Week has been promising an authentic bathtub brew at next Thursday's festival at the National Constitution Center, as a tribute to its outstanding exhibit, "American Spirits: The Rise & Fall of Prohibition." The idea is to wheel some old-fashioned cast-iron bathtubs into the center and bubble up a batch of authentic, Prohibition-era suds.
