If you’ve lived in more than one state in America, you’ve surly noticed the differing laws governing the purchase of alcohol. Of course, most of these laws – different Iin every state - arrived on the books in 1933, the year that Prohibition was repealed. In his book The Prohibition Hangover, Garrett Peck details the various laws and customs that map out the American attitude toward alcohol, and the ongoing battle between two schools of thought: that alcohol is either a consumer product, or a controlled substance. This is a great read for anyone interested in wine, beer, cocktail culture and history - even for those who just sip the obligatory margarita on Cinco de Mayo.
