Summary
"Sismondo recounts the rich and fascinating history of an institution often reviled, yet always central to American life. She traces the tavern from old England to New England, showing how even the Puritans valued 'a good Beere.' ... She carries the story through the twentieth century and beyond, from struggles over licensing and Sunday liquor sales, from the Whiskey Rebellion to the temperance movement, from attempts to ban voter 'treating' to Prohibition and repeal."--Jacket p. [2]
