Hop To It
In 1915, there were roughly 1,300 breweries in the United States. That number dropped to zero with the arrival of Prohibition in 1920. And although a handful survived the Volstead Act — many by producing other products or low-alcohol "near beer" — there were fewer than 300 in the entire country for most of the 20th century. Today, the industry has bounced back — to more than 7,000, most of which are small and independent craft breweries with sales numbers that continue to climb dramatically each year. Still, if they were people, the oldest breweries in most states would hardly be old enough to buy a beer. Here are 19 that don't have to show ID.
