    Found some 24 oz. cans of Crazy Stallion at a liquor store in Colorado Springs while driving home from GABF last year, so it is still out there. Name was changed after complaints but not sure about the recipe.

    They have Crazy Stallion here in Michigan, But typically only in the Liquor Stores in the ghetto part of town. I thought the stuff was almost as bad as steel reserve. Tasted like I took a big ole bite out of a steel bar.

    Pretty sure you should be able to find Neil Young with Crazy Horse at any good music shop ;)

    Hoovers seems to think so:
    Ferolito, Vultaggio & Sons (best known for Arizona Ice Tea) owned both labels, marketed them under their dba of "Hornell Brewing Co." and used the La Crosse, WI brewery owned by Heileman > Stroh > City as their contract brewer. Whether or not the beer is still brewed to the original recipe/abv is something only FVS could answer but the labels certainly suggest that they wanted consumers to think it was the same product.

    I see you're from Dutchess County. Maybe you'd find it in Poughkeepsie? I don't think Carmel has many minorities (I could be wrong), whereas Poughkeepsie does and that's who malt liquor is marketed to.

    I'm down in Yonkers and I saw it recently at a gas station.

    I remember drinking Crazy Horse back in the mid-90s. Of all the malt liquors I've had, that was the toughest to get down. The second, and I mean the second it was no longer ice cold, vodka flavors would surface.

    I drank the hell out of crazy horse back in the day! I'd bring a few 40's to the beach on Long Island and watch the girlies go by.

    It's funny how I can imagine that slapped in the cooler at 7-11 right next to all the Arizona junk.

    I sell it in my store, I'm not a ghetto store. I carry it for one Guy .... tried it, taste like water with caramel malt and a tad alcohol note
