Cheers! Drinkers celebrated 77 years of OK'ed imbibing on Saturday in Maplewood.

 Volunteering is always a good thing. But these volunteers, who kept the beer flowing all day long, also had the benefit of being able to drink on the job.

Prohibition in the U.S. lasted between 1920 and 1933. Judging from the popularity of this event, it's not likely to make a comeback anytime soon.
