During the prohibition era Fee Brothers continued to make altar wines, something that was legal to produce and was sold throughout the United States. The brothers would travel out to individuals homes and set up a barrel with grape concentrate,water, sugar and yeast to make wine, then return a few months later to check on the progress of the wine. They also made a non-alcoholic beer, that was labeled with "do not add yeast to this product as it is likely to ferment", kind of a creative way around actually producing ans alcoholic beverage. Most of these were mad by in experienced people and really didn't taste very good, so Fee Brothers began to produce flavorings and cordial syrups to overcome this problem.
