1919 - West Warwick Liquor Men Are Opposed to 2.75 Beer

Prominent liquor dealers in West Warwick are strongly opposed to the movement of brewers throughout the country to secure the privilege of manufacturing and selling 2.75 per cent beer and they say that the West Warwick Liquor Dealers Association will not in any way assist this movement.

'We want to sell real beer or none at all' is the reported declaration of the members of the association. Some of them assert that the whole scheme is cooked up by the big brewers so that grocers, ice cream shops and candy stores can sell the near-beer throughout the country and ruin the business of the regular liquor dealers.
