The $$^{9}$$Be($$^{3}$$He,$$alpha$$)$$^{8}$$Be($$p$$)$$^{7}$$Li reaction was studied at $$E_{rm lab}$$($$^{3}$$He)=30 MeV to deduce the branching ratios of $$Gamma_{p1}/Gamma_{p0}$$ of resonant state at 18.91 - 20.1 MeV in $$^{8}$$Be, which are necessary to extract the $$^{7}$$Be($$n$$, $$p_{1}$$)$$^{7}$$Li$$^{*}$$ reaction rate relevant to the $$^{7}$$Be destruction in the big bang nucleosynthesis, from the $$^{7}$$Li($$p$$,$$n_{0}$$)$$^{7}$$Be reaction cross section. The decay protons from $$^{8}$$Be$$^{*}$$ to the ground and first excited states in $$^{7}$$Li were well-separately measured. The $$Gamma_{p1}/Gamma_{p0}$$ ratio of the 19.235-MeV state was deduced to be 3.4$$pm$$1.9%. The 19.86- and 20.1-MeV states were found to decay dominantly into the first excited and ground states of $$^{7}$$Li, respectively.
