CHIEF NOSE WETTER'S SARCASM DERIVED THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF A GLASS
In what year? We started stealing beer from my buddys older brother. that was in the mid late 60's, in West Texas and all that nimrod had was Micalob. We didn't give a shit, it was free beer. After that it was Coors.
Local had PBR on draft for $.25. Schaefer or Carling Black Label for band rehearsals - buck and a half a sixpack. At home with the girlfriend, we'd drink Spaten 'Double-Shovel' doppelbock at I seem to remember $2.50 a sixpack, but $8 per case. Circa 1980.
Mickey's, though more for the friends than beer? I've enjoyed all but four of those brands... two? Cheap, but doable, once.
Back in the early 1960s, my Dad used to drink Busch Bavarian.Each bottle had an opener molded into the bottom, so you could use the one you just finished to open the next one.When I tell people this, they look at me like I just grew a second head.- Mister BlueSky
My favorite was Schlitz but Black Label was $1.25 a case on Okinawa so. . .
Iron City, of course:https://tinyurl.com/IronCityBeerBrewed downstream from the steel mills in Pittsburgh!
What about GRAINBELT and STROHS???
Black label in a stubby. Can't believe I drank that shit
I loved Black Label and Ballantine XXX, but my favorite was always Esquire from Jones Brewing in Smithton, PA. The brewery was owned by Shirley Jones' family. Long gone now. I wish that I could find the recipe for it. I do have one for the XXX and occasionally would make a batch. Brings back a lot of memories. Another was Old Milwaukee which we lovingly called "Old Milhunkie". You could get it cheaper than anything else. 7 oz. pony bottles of other beer came 48/case. You could get three flats of 24 Old Milwaukee that were shrink wrapped together for the same price. Ah, the good, old days............
Mickey loudmouths with the pull tops. Good times.
Iron City Beer from Pittsburgh, PA. Selling at 65 cents a quart in 1959 and guaranteed to give you an aspirin proof headache.
Iron City, a Pittsburg brew I think?
Mickeys big mouths for me. You could drink them in the car while driving and then use the wide mouth bottle to piss in them. Good times!
It's time to Stroh a party. Back in the 70's it cost $10 for a case and a bag of ice. The same price as 2 movie tickets and a large popcorn with 2 large cokes. There was also the generic "Beer" in the white can.
Old Milwaukee. Cans were shaped a bit different and that allowed a 24 pak to fit in my roller skate case.
I see three different guys mentioning Iron City. We had a choice of quarts that were sold here in most bars. Iron City, Schmitt's and Duquesne. My buddies would mostly get IC, but I'd opt for the Duke. It was $.05 cheaper. And as my old friend Boggie said, it did and still does give you an aspirin proof headache................
Then there was always Rolling Rock!Or Labatt's, for the Canuckians...
Falstaff was good. There used to be a website that listed stores that sold Carling Black Label. seems to be gone now.
As I said over at "Relieve yourself", it's PBR, aka "Redneck Fuel."
Ah, I remember the song:National Beer, National Beer,We like the taste of National Beer!It's from the land of pleasant living We bring you National Beer!Baltimore, Fells Point, the old Wharf Rat, before it got all fancified from being a regular location for Homicide: Life on the Streets, you could get a Natty Bo and a Moon Pie for 50 cents. Way back a while.
Old School favorite - Strohs Fire Brewed, currently - Fosters, seriously good beer.
Hahhaa - Iron City, yea I grew up in Pittsburgh. If any beer was horse piss that was it. Remember Hoppengator? First couple sips not bad, but regurgitating after that. Gennesee Cream Ale from that area was pretty good.
NY State Iroquois Beer. Just a step below Blatz.
Falstaff...Hey microbrewers .... replicate it, same package, sell at a reasonable price and make a fortune.
so i grew up ion the mid west....deep mid west....hamms, grain belt, and storz deep in the mid west
If you like Foster's, try one of the other Aussie beers. We think Foster's is only good enough for export - not good enough to drink ourselves.
'Fallstaff, Jax and Regal!!! Also "DIXIE!!!!!" Back when the "Old Brewmeister" was still alive!! I remember in 1966 buying a six pac of "DIXIE" for $.99!!!!! skybill
I never realized there were so many rummies following my blog. Honorable mention goes to Iron City, Genesee Cream Ale, Schmidt's, Old Milwaukee, and Stroh's.
Mickey's of the pictured. Big mouth bottles you could chug much easier than a standard can. We didn't drink and drive though, too much risk of getting busted.And Lone Star beer (Texas) a quart of that would give me a good buzz that didn't cost a mint.
