A Round for the House -A History of Drinking in America. Produced by Stephen R. Powell and Thomas P. McDade.

America: liberty, justice and a drink for all? This is the history of alcohol and our attitudes towards drinking from the revolution to today.

What if an American President used alcohol to buy votes to get elected? What if Federal Judges interrupted court proceedings to drink alcohol? While few would deny that alcohol has been a problem for our society, many would be astonished to know we drink less today than in earlier periods in our history.
This is the story of America as seen from the bottom of the drinking glass, and the astonishing role alcohol has played in the history of our nation.
