Yesterday’s answer:
B.   Wine and Porter
From the 1839 mission to England:   The apostles, nevertheless, preached the Word of Wisdom strongly, and because of their reputation for opposing the use of alcoholic beverages, they were regularly invited to speak at temperance meetings. They were most concerned with the avoidance of excess, and particularly drunkenness, and it seems that they personally avoided hard liquors of any sort, but they were not teetotalers. An occasional glass of wine on a special occasion was deemed appropriate, and at times they drank porter (a light beer) with their meals. In January 1841, on one of their frequent sight-seeing tours, Wilford Woodruff and Heber Kimball visited what was said to be the largest wine vault in the world. They participated in the traditional tasting ritual, “found the wine a good article,” but thought it “dreadful to see such vast sums of money expended for intoxicating drinks when there are thousands nearly starving for bread in the streets.” The missionaries also took tea, an important British tradition, when invited by gracious hosts and hostesses.
