WW1 and WW2:
In WW1 the production of beer around the world had been hit by a brick wall the slowed the production of beer, because most of the workers had to fight in the war and most of the brewery workers were males. WW1 had even affected some brewery’s in Europe causing them to close down forever(Beer through the ages 2022). But beer in WW2 hadn’t died out in fact in England they had actually just changed there operating hours of pubs during WW2, beer was still a popular drink during WW2 that even some of the solders wrote about it in their dairy’s(National WW2 museum Memorial 2022). During WW2 the state of beer and alcohol were actually in a good state because when Germany had attacked France in 1940, France had allocated 3500 trucks to send wine to the front line for the troops to drink, even the British fought while on the rum rations during WW2 the solders remember “running off rum”(Peter Andreas 2020).
