• Short Summary

    Prohibition is over - lots of beer is served in a New York bar.

  • Description

    Full title reads "New York. It's Ale Columbia now! Whoopee parties bid 'goodbye to all that prohibition stuff' with real beer!!"

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    Barrels of beer are loaded onto the back of a horse drawn dray wagon. The driver says 'Good Times are here again!'.

    Shots of the wagon leaving the brewery and trotting along New York streets.

    Shots of beer being served in a bar. CU of glasses being filled from pumps. A glass of beer is slid down the bar. Men start singing in bar. CU of man's foot trying to rest on foot rail, he is drunk.

    Speeded up shots of beers being served and men drinking at bar.

    N.B. Presumably this story was made after the end of Prohibition in the US.
