Now don't forget that during the prohibition, Joe Kennedy the Patriarch of the Kennedy clan was a dealer in the spirits and sold illegally whiskey and malts to states that prohibited sales of whiskey. My great grandfather was one of his runners and our family during the years upto the mid 70's would talk about it often. Go figure...

------------FYI

Prohibition was all but sealed by the time the United States entered World War I in 1917, but the conflict served as one of the last nails in the coffin of legalized alcohol. Dry advocates argued that the barley used in brewing beer could be made into bread to feed American soldiers and war-ravaged Europeans, and they succeeded in winning wartime bans on strong drink. Anti-alcohol crusaders were often fueled by xenophobia, and the war allowed them to paint America’s largely German brewing industry as a threat. “We have German enemies in this country, too,” one temperance politician argued. “And the worst of all our German enemies, the most treacherous, the most menacing, are Pabst, Schlitz, Blatz and Miller.”
