Nickel City Drafts: A Drinking History of Buffalo by Dan Murphy

Long before Mayor Jimmy Griffin advised Buffalo residents to wait out a major blizzard by buying a six-pack, the city has had a love affair with beer and alcohol. Buffalo once was home to "the wickedest street in the world," a whiskey-soaked canalside den of sin and vice. It is, after all, the city that responded to Prohibition by electing an anti-Prohibition brewmaster as mayor -- twice. In Nickel City Drafts, author Dan Murphy has written its history, as seen through a pint glass.
