    • I’ve noticed a lot of people drinking PBR down here, which puzzles me. Beer tastes so much better out of a bottle. Although I have to admit, when I was young and on a budget, I drank PBR too. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        • I remember Schmidts. Do you remember Genesee Beer? On sale in the Sixties it might be as low as 99 cents a six pack!

  2. “Old Illwaukee” was my go to beer …

    I remember also “bootlegged” Coors and could occasionally score a case for a “beer social gathering.”

    Actually did a “Beer Tasting” where the guests were asked to ID the Coors … my recollection, which is suspect, is that the 10-12 people there, were no better than a random guess at the 6 beers to choose from.

    I did stash an old fridge in my garage (I was 24-25 years old & fridge may have been my senior) and punched a hole in the side for a CO2 tank. From that point forward drank whatever I could get in a “pony keg.” Spent most of each day in my garage. No AC, but plenty of cold beer. Also may have been in the reasons why that marriage went “bottoms up.”

    • I used to drink bootlegged Coors too, thought it tasted great! Then when I moved to the West Coast where it was legal it didn’t taste so special anymore. ๐Ÿ™‚
