DUBLIN, Calif. (AP) - Deputies at a San Francisco Bay Area jail confiscated 200 gallons of prison-made liquor that inmates were making for a Super Bowl party.

Alameda County Sheriff Sgt. Ray Kelly says deputies found the liquor Saturday before Super Bowl Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers lost 31-20 to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Known as “pruno," the illicit alcoholic beverage is fermented from leftover fruit, sugar, and juice with a little bread to provide the yeast.

The concoction is then put in plastic bags that are hidden in toilets and garbage cans while it ferments.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department wrote on an Instagram post showing officers posing behind about two dozen plastic bags with green, yellow and orange liquor.
