PROHIBITION

Beer was the first legal alcoholic beverage to be sold when prohibition was repealed. 
     Beer was legal on April 7, 1933, but other alcoholic beverages could not be legally purchased until December 5, 1933.
 

In 1904 North Dakota was a prohibition state but Montana wasn't. 
     In Sidney, Montana a bar was built on the state line, so you could buy your drink in Montana, and drink it in North Dakota.
 

California's vineyards were less than 100,000 acres before Prohibition, and by the end of Prohibition had expanded to over 600,000 acres! (1920-1933)
 

During Prohibition years when alcohol sales were banned by the 18th amendment to the U.S. Constitution (1920-1933) wine growers would put large labels on their grape juice that stated: 'Warning: Will Ferment and turn into wine,' and then proceeded to give detailed instructions of what NOT to do so the grape juice would not accidentally turn into wine!
 

Pilsner Urquell was the number one import beer in the U.S. before Prohibition.
