Toured the brewery twice. Super, super cool place and I highly recommend the trip even if one doesn't drink. They still store beer underground in the same tunnels they used in the 1800s, and you can still see the brick wall they were forced to put up sealing it off during prohibition. I've been to the Coors, and two of the Anheuser breweries and Yeungling is orders of magnitude more fun.

But yeah. Going nationwide is going to make Yeungling the new hipster beer and send PBR back to the old man cooler behind Hamm's and Grain Belt.
Is Falstaff hiding back there too??? I use to drink that way back when shep was just a pup!

Falstaff and PBR were the beer of choice for me and my high school friends when we were in an old farts’ bowling league in Fat Dawg. One of our geeky partners may even have ordered Grain Belt from time to time.

Dad was a Hamms’ man.

Anyone drink Schlitz?

My high school was split between Schlitz and Old Milwaukee. I had Schlitz a few times and it was better than Ex Lax at curing constipation.

There was a bar called The Brothers Three in Dubuque that had Schlitz on tap. It was in the late 60"s early 70's. They had a boat load of my money back then.

Remember the "ice" bubble back in the mid '90's? We once procured 2 cases of "Hamm's Ice" back in high school and I have to say it was one of the most vile beers that has ever touched my mouth.

Schlitz did a rebrand several years ago. I tried it after the reformulation and it was actually pretty legit. I don't see it sold down here, though.

I bought a case of Icehouse a few months ago, just to relive the glory days. It was....not good. I ended up giving the last half of it to the neighbor who doesn't mind a shitty beer from time to time.

Moosehead beer, anyone?

Back in the day it was cheap swill, the worst you could buy. One of the smartest girls in class stole a case from her pop and a few of us broke into the back of a runway area at Fat Dawg airport and drank Moosehead and smoked a joint, increasingly marveling at the runway strobes.

There were plenty of cheap beers we tolerated back in the day because it was all we could afford. Brau Meister, Grain Belt, Schaefer, Icehouse, Dubuque Star.

But Black Label stood head and shoulders above the rest. In the 1980s you could get it at John's Grocery in Iowa City for under five dollars a case, perhaps $2.88 for a 12 pack.

Like they've always said though, you get what you pay for. And I paid for it other ways, too. Like the next morning, and sometimes into the afternoon.

Remember these back in the day? I was too young to drink them but I wonder who made them.

Has anyone had the pleasure (or displeasure) of drinking one of these?
