Abstract

The content of this poster pertains to the subject of National Prohibition in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. It also compares the struggles of the citizens of St. Louis in comparison with the other major cities of the United States. To compare these cities, I have used statistical information that shows how many people were employed by the breweries in each city, how many breweries were in each city, and how much beer was produced by these breweries. These figures span from just before the ratification of the Eighteenth Amendment to the ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment. The final aspect of my poster will focus on the Anheuser-Busch brewery of St. Louis. This brewery is an important brewery to study because of its ties to the city of St. Louis and its brewing industry.
