Beer Barrel Polecats is set during Prohibition, when purchasing beer in the U.S.A. was illegal. But it was still legal to make your own beer for your own personal use.  The Three Stooges (MoeLarry, and Curly) in Curly’s first short film made after his initial stroke proceed to do that.  And the first half of the film is quite funny, as all three of them add yeast to their batch of beer – with explosive results.  They finally manage to bottle all of their beer, and all’s well.  Until Curly tries to sell a bottle to an undercover police officer at black market prices.  And the Stooges end up going to jail.
