Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that could shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a brewery tour for two with five 5-ounce samples and one pint-sized sample each (a $20.50 value) at Moccasin Bend Brewing Company, located in the historic St. Elmo district.

Inside Moccasin Bend Brewing Company's century-old building, which was built for packaging K-rations during World War One, a variety of small-batch craft beers wait patiently to be discovered by visitors. Beer apprentices surround themselves with facts about the brewing process—which involves such magical ingredients as hops, yeast, malt, different hops, and alcohol incarnate—during a tour of the ale and lager factory, then enter Moccasin Bend's rock-walled tasting room to try an octet of 5-ounce beer samples and one pint-sized sample, testing out the seasonal and year-round brews made in small batches on the premises. Tours lead brave explorers into the sloshy world of beer on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Moccasin Bend Brewing Company

While working on inventive lagers and ales as members of the Barley Mob Brewers home-brewing club, Chris Hunt and Duncan Guy had an epiphany: we need to share this stuff with the public. So, in 2006, they teamed up with award-winning brewer Courtney Tyvand to start Moccasin Bend Brewing Company. 

Today, they brew about 10 beers at any given time. Their menu could include an Irish red prepped with American hops and a pale ale made with juniper berries one day, or their signature smoked porter the next. No matter what the beer, creativity remains integral to the production process, and the brewers often add culinary twists such as watermelon or coconut juice to surprise palates that are used to tasting only cotton balls. All the magic happens inside a building which was built in 1952 as the first holiday inn in the area.
