Miller High Life. Yep.
High Life here as well...was about 75 degrees pour temp too. Mmmmm.
and thank god for that
Do they still make Milwaukee's Best Light? I haven't seen it in years, but then again, I'm not exactly fervently looking for it...
Corona. Yes, yes they do.
Nah, not all beer... just Rolling Rock
I used to drink quite a bit of that as a younger man. If memory serves, being harder to find is probably not such a bad thing.
My thoughts exactly.
I was in Italy on my 21st birthday and I sort of remember having a few of those, but that was a long time ago.
Genesee can from my dad. It was cold so seemed alright at the time.
Bud in '83. Still around, but not in my fridge.
Bud Light. First beer I truly remember the taste of (at the time too powerful for my taste buds)... Arrogant Bastard- One of my favorite go to beers to date
Mine, embarrassing enough, was Aspen Edge, which was made by Coors. It was literally water, but I thought I was cool, because nobody drank it and the label looked expensive. They do not make it anymore.
Rainier. Very much still around, though not in my to-get list.
Odds are it was either Schlitz, Pearl, Pearl Light or Texas Pride.
I think only Schlitz still exists, but I believe it's under new ownership and management, so is it really the Schlitz of my childhood? Possibly ... I bought a 12-pack last year, and it wasn't too bad for an AAL.
Old Style.... It's still around as far as I know. I was 16 years old and doing my college orientation in 1973. I drank 1.5 beers and that was the first time I drank beer. I drank considerably more on my 17th birthday a few months later and couldn't stand the taste of beer for quite a while after that!
Spaten Optimator - was my father's favorite at the time
Me and a cousin snuck a Dixie beer from my uncle's cooler at a family picnic. We were about 10 ('74). The first I bought was Bud a few years later. I still have a soft spot for Dixie.
Uh, yes. My first beer was Coors Light.
These are my childhood beers I snuck a sip of, while my dad left the room...
And this is the first beer I drank multiples of, with friends...
I know Genesee is still made, because it's still the old man's brew of choice. No clue about the others.
Budweiser in a can, in a row boat. Me and the pops were fishing when I was in 7th grade. It was a "shhhh, don't tell mom" moment. He is a vet and, still to this day, I drink a few cans with him whenever we visit the AM Legion together.
Funny story...X-misses found several bottles out in the Vegas desert and thought she'd found something collectible!
I feel bad, I don't remember the first beer I drank. And I don't remember much of my early childhood, let alone if I had a sip of a beer at the age of 5 or 6 like I'm seeing here. So do they still make the first beer I ever drank? Beats me.
Rainer still around? I can't say that I've seen it in ages and I visited Seattle last summer and noticed that the brewery is no more.
keystone, the shame is real
Yes, Old Style is still around. Actually, there's a few in my beer fridge right now.
Lol funny stuff. A local store still carries the 6pks for like $5.
Ommegang Abbey Ale. What a loser I was.
Just kidding. Probably a Genny. Maybe worse. Suffice it to say it wasn't memorable.
My first brew was a Rolling Rock. (pony bottle ofc). InBev still makes something called Rolling Rock, but it is not the same beer my Dad let me have many years ago...
I just realized that my oldest kid's first beer was one of my homebrews. It's an oddly proud daddy moment (sniff).
Boston Beer Co. moved into part of the long abandoned Haffenreffer brewery which closed in 1964. After closing the brand moved to Narragansett (at the time, owned by another branch of the Haffenreffer family). It then became a Falstaff brand, and then an S&P (Falstaff, General, Pearl, Pabst) brand. Was briefly back on the market a few years back when some members of the original Haffenreffer family regained the trademark using the dba of "Private Stock Brewing Co." (contract brewed), but they eventually folded.
Schlitz was bought by Stroh in 1982, and is now owned by Pabst, as is Pearl Beer (the corporate parent of Pearl, S&P Corp., bought Pabst in the mid-1980s).
InBev is the company that sold the Rolling Rock brand to Anheuser Busch. They had owned the brand since the early 1990s, when they (at the time Interbrew) bought the Canadian brewer, Labatt, which had purchased the Latrobe Brewing Co. in the late 1980s.
Before that, Latrobe had briefly been owned by the Sundor, Inc. best known for "Sunny Delight" juice drink. They missed out on the fad by a few decades, never making Rolling Rock/Sunny D. Shandy.
Carlings Black Label.for me too. Tasted awful, couldn't believe people actually liked drinking beer. That was around 1971, I was maybe 10. I think much differently about beer now.....Cheers!
Here's the Grain Belt story: http://grainbelt.com/about-grain-belt-beer/
It's still alright, nothing wrong with enjoying a cold Beer.
A sip of my dad's Boston Lager in the late-90's.
Most people would say unfortunately and although it will remain unnamed it is still a stable beer of choice for me. So where I have come from this is a rarity.
Nope. First swigs were from a Falstaff when I was a kid.
Well I did the math and that makes us pretty damn close to the same age and growing up in VT I'd also have to say it was Carling Black Label as well. The one thing I can assure you is it was not Bud. My father never drank Bud.
