(FLINT JOURNAL) LINDEN, MI -- Fifth-grade students were given non-alcoholic beer in a Linden classroom during a lesson on colonial times, district Superintendent Ed Koledo said.
Koledo said a teacher allowed her students at Hyatt Elementary School to sample O'Doul's non-alcoholic beer, which had been brought to school by a student to represent ale common in the 1700s and consumed because of the scarcity of clean water. School officials have not said how many students sampled the drink.
