I picked these three mainly because I want to see how many breweries survived prohibition and then how they died. I live next to Yuengling brewery (America’s Oldest) and they came up with pretty great and creative ways to stay afloat through American prohibition. It interests me to know if and how any Albany Breweries stayed afloat through prohibition. Also, it would be pretty cool to know what an Albany lager tastes like compared to an average american lager. Also, what would have the Albany economy have been like if prohibition never took place. Would the beer culture have stayed in Albany? Would it look like modern day Denver with micro-breweries popping up all the time?
