Prohibition



America was colonized by the devoutly religious. They believed that overindulgence of any kind was a sin and regarded alcohol with a skeptical eye. From the beginning, there was a strong sentiment in the colonies to do away with alcohol altogether. Luckily for early American brewers, we were also an idealistic, democratic and thirsty bunch, and the industry was tolerated. Nonetheless, the condemnation of the ?evils of drink? was a central part of public and religious life and a movement was soon organized. By the 1820s the Temperance Movement had their own political party and functionaries in high government offices.
