Look at it,there's no head space. so it's obvious at this point that it ain't beer...

I realize that waiters spout off the "typical BMCs" almost everywhere you go, but my recollection is that it is a misdemeanor to even mention a non-Anheuser-Busch beer in St. Louis. When I was a kid (late 60s, early 70s), Coor's (my Dad's favorite beer) was not even sold in Missouri. He used to stock up when we went camping in Colorado every summer, and smuggle it back home to St. Louis (definitely a felony). And you couldn't find Bud anywhere near the Rockies. Don't know if it's still the same these days. Cool history, crummy beer.

We got a hold of some coors when I was in college. You couldn't get it out east. just like in Smokey and the Bandit.

We thought we had gold. We kept raving about how good it was. Looking back i'm pretty sure it was all in or heads.

First thought in my head when reading this was "east bound and down" but b-boy beat me to the smokey and the bandit reference

Still had to throw the sing in though. Jerry Reed is a legend

We can get coors & the like around here. But the craft beer explosion is rapidly burying them,thank goodness. But I still miss the old time brands of the 50's & 60's. I still remember the Stroh's "bohemian style beer" labels seen in The Green Mile...

Speaking of beers from my Midwest childhood (that my Dad and Grandpa drank), I was dumfounded when I saw Pabst Blue Ribbon make a comeback, especially as a trendy "retro" beer. I mean, if Pabst, why not Schlitz?

I used to live in uptown Minneapolis, and hung out with a lot of punk bands. Every time any of my friends had a party, the beer provided was PBR...if we ran out of that, the backup beer was Black Label. I remember asking, "what the hell is Black Label?". And somebody responded, "it's Canada's PBR". Haha

I'm not sure if I posted this before, but a few months back I went to Alabama for my brother Air Force Officer Commisioning. We went out to this local seafood joint, and I asked the waitress what beers they had. She rattled off the regular stuff and I asked off they had any craft beer/microbrews or any Alabama brewed beers.

She said, "brewing beer is illegal in Alabama", trying to be as nice as possible, I said, "well, home brewing is illegal, but there are still breweries". She argued that there wasn't and the only "fancy" beer they had was Ying Ling and since I had never had it, I gave it a shot...reminded me of Grain Belt

The funny part was, I had dinner at The Railyard Brewery the night before...I must have been imagining it though, after all it's illegal to brew beer in Alabama

I have seen Schlitz and Hamm's around in the last year. Both were cheaper than the typical BMC and I thought they were better too.
