Rochester, NY- The Rochester philharmonic orchestra’s prohibition concert has caused quite the stir in the community. Some are calling the concert “insensitive” in response to the fact that is reminding everyone of the loss of Ruby Red Kolsch. The loss of Ruby Red was a big one in Rochester, with nowhere to go for the loss of cheap tasty beer. We were able to speak to a local Rochesterian to understand the feelings happening in the community.
” You know, I understand it’s just music, but I have to say I feel like the timing is a bit too soon, you know? I just finished off my very last case of Ruby Red two days ago and I don’t really think I’ve come to terms yet with the fact I have to wait a whole year for it. Having to listen to a concert about a time period in this country where alcohol was illegal is just too much for my heart to bare and quite honestly, I think I speak for all of Rochester when I say that.“
Update: Here at the Inner Loop we have just received word that there will be a mass gathering outside of the RPO to have a candlelight vigil in remembrance of Ruby Red Kolsch.
