New York Town Serves First Beer Since Prohibition

Thursday was a banner day for the small New York town of Neverdrink. Er, Neversink. That's because—as Jezebel reports—the first alcohol in 80 years was just served there. Prohibition has been the law of the land in Neversink since 1935. That changed in November when two propositions passed making the sale of beer, wine, and liquor legal. According to the Middletown Times Herald-Record, the town's first beer since FDR was president was quaffed by Kenny Curry—whose father was thought to be one of the last people served a beer in Neversink—at the Eureka Market & Cafe. He went with the Trout Town IPA from the Roscoe Beer Company. It seems microbrewing has come to Neversink, as well. (Read more New York stories.)
