    The Russians vs USA hockey 1980...USA defeats the Russians...
    The Anniversary was this past weekend, and I saw a quick snapshot of a beer celebrating the event....

    Does anyone have any details?
    I can not find....

    Thanks for the help!

    I don't believe any such beer exists (a beer brewed especially to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the "Miracle On Ice"). If it did we would have heard of it on this site at some point and/or you'd be able to find it on Google. It exists in neither place.

    Maybe you saw a pic of someone raising a beer to toast the 40th anniversary of the greatest sporting moment of the 20th century?

    sounds like some Budweiser shit. The last few of their special releases had themes like the Repeal of Prohibition. George Washington's Recipe or The Moon Landing Anniversary

    I had some that day at CHS, so it does exist. And they were selling it in St Paul bars.

    Thank you!!! I was given the contact name for CHS and left a message, but have yet to hear back. There was a commemorative can, yes? What type of beer was it? Do you know who made it?

    Would be fitting and cool if Lake Placid Pub & Brewery made it.

    Coincidentally I Literally just cracked an Ubu. Been at least 8-10 years since I’ve had one.
