NEVERSINK, N.Y. (AP) — A customer has bought the first beer served legally in a rural upstate New York town in 80 years.
The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/1NWT5S1 ) servers at the Eureka Market & Cafe poured the first beer sold in Neversink on Thursday since an eight-decade prohibition on alcohol was partially lifted last month.
Kenny Curry was the first to be served and had a pint of Trout Town Eagle IPA as about 20 supporters cheered.
Voters approved two propositions that changed the town’s dry laws to allow beer, wine and liquor sales in restaurants and package stores.
