ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif. (KTLA) -- Jail deputies in a San Francisco Bay Area jail confiscated 200 gallons of prison-made alcohol inmates were making for a Super Bowl party, according to sheriff’s officials.

Deputies found the liquor Saturday at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin before Super Bowl Sunday, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Known as “pruno,” the illicit alcoholic beverage is fermented from leftover fruit, sugar and juice with a little bread to provide the yeast and made in sealed plastic bags.

Inmates commonly use toilets and garbage cans to hide it, he said.
