This site could do with a bit of nostalgia, it's great when this stuff is shared. Nice!
I have and I liked the malt liquor, I was a regular customer
I remember this stuff. I lived in Florida in the early 70's before I wised up and moved back to Ohio. It tasted just as described, malt liquor and Gator Aide. We called it alligator piss. I recall buying it up in Columbus at a carry out on North Fourth Street. It got the job done buzzwise but then so did Mickey's. Tell you what, it blows Wild Blue away for flavor.
Are you referring to Mickey's Bigmouths? Christ when I was a teenager me and my friends would buy a case, peel off the tops and get Blasted!!!
we call it leinekugels summer shandy! Tastes like watered down Gatorade but yet apparently is beer!
I don't think I could do lemon Gatorade anymore.... even with beer mixed in.
then again, I never had a radler / shandy that I liked. I'll stick to plain ol' beer, I think.
Plain ol' beer ay? Says the man with multiple bottles of BCBS, BCBCS, and Big John in his avatar.
(and even more in my new beer fridge.... see today's "what are you drinking?" post )
I'm a German who detests radlers... always did....
Sorry default mode for me on BA is bearded male. I suppose looking at ones gender before posting would be appropriate but what do take me for, some kind of guy that isn't lazy? I wasn't knocking you though I have plenty of BCBS and its variants myself lol.
nah, totally fine. I swear if I keep drinking beer like this, one day I'll wake-up as a bearded dude.
But in the interim, I'm still a blonde BA in heels and a skirt.
and to me, BCBS rocks... right up there with evil twin and firestone walker. Can't get enough (as you can tell)
But they could market it as Slurm.
I remember that one tasting pretty much like crap. But it sure was cheap.
my great aunt used to drink this stuff according to my dad...apperently it makes really good fish bait
This stuff had some serious product placement in the movie Repo Man.
I tried that shit when it came out .. I just had to. It was crap as expected but interesting to say the least. Forgot about this until now !
Just had to chime in with one of my favorite concoctions from college life (and little after). There used to be a pizza place that served a "NASCAR". Basically they poured an 8oz red bull in a red plastic pizza cup and filled the rest with draft PBR, stuff was so awful and so good. I also remember sparks. I worked next to this Greek restaurant and they used to give us cans the distributors would give them to try and sell there. Tasted like a liquid sweet tart
Ugh. Sparks. Hangover in a can. One of the worst hangovers of my life.
That movie is literally the reason I bought the can when I saw it at a garage sale! I really want the shirt now. Even better than the Beer was when Emilio Estevez was at his parents house and took a can of "Food" out of the cupboard and in parentheses under the word food it says meat flavored lol. Such a clasic movie.
No Hop N Gator was something else entirely. I remember Mickey's Wide Mouth too.
Gose mixed with berlinerwiess?
What is a pizza cup?
That looks so cool. WANT.
I drank it in the early 70's. It didn't taste especially good but it appealed to me because it was sweet.
I drank Hop N' Gator quite a bit, during my high school days in Indianapolis, in 71-72 time frame. I liked it. Wish they still made it. With all the retro stuff nowadays, maybe it will make a comeback. The thing about Hop N' Gator, you either loved it or hated it. Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy doesn't taste ANYTHING like it. Nothing available nowadays does, in my opinion.
I hope it is brought back.
I am from Ohio and back in around 1970 or '71 I had some Hop'N'Gator beer. I remember I didn't care for it, to citrusy for me.
I was fifteen in 1969 and worked in an ice cream grill place at the Jersey shore. A French guy named Charlie also worked there and since he was of legal age, would buy us Gatorade for our parties. Good memories, thankfully my tastebuds have advanced from that starting point.
This decades' Gatorade is not as good as last decades' Gatorade....
Drank a can at the Brickskellar when I was 17. Absolutely disgusting.
I see what you did there.
Sorry, meant to say hop-n-gator, not Gatorade, a Gatorade party would be lame.
Lemon Lime Gatorade and Beer are the entire contents of the bottom rack in my fridge. I may have to whip up some of this.
Pittsburgh Brewing Co. Iron City and Gatorade
The idea is you drink the beer, a large amount. Go to sleep, wake up listless, dehydrated and with a headache. Then add the Gatorade.
No charge for that clarification , Sir.
