From the revolutionary camaraderie of the Colonial taverns to the saloons of the turn of the century; from Prohibition―a period rife with class politics, social reform, and opportunism―to a trail of nightclub neon so vast, it was called the “Conga Belt,” Drinking Boston is a tribute to the fascinating role alcohol has played throughout the city's history.
