    Kate sort of lives on with Tributary's Mott the Lesser. Same base recipe, with a different barrel selection each time. Obviously it comes out a bit different due to a different brewing rig.

    My selectins would be Sierra Nevada's Tumbler and Pretty Things (all of them, but if I had to choose one it would be Jack D'Or)

    Remember when Sam Adams started those homebrew contests? One year one of the winners was Longshot Dark Lager. There was nothing fancy about it but it was awesome....I couldn't get enough of it.....the it's year was up and it was gone.

    IT IS? I honestly had no idea, I'd given up years ago. Is it still as good as it was years ago?

    It doesn't seem missed by many by I thought Sierra Nevada's Nooner was a perfect flavorful "lawnmower" beer and would love to see it again.

    I'm having a hard time coming up with a second one so I'll just say Sierra Nevada seasonal 12 packs in general.

    USA (U Save Alot) and Robin Hood Cream Ale...

    Both were available in north central Ohio in the late 70s / early 80s...USA was in a generic white can. Robin Hood was recently brewed outside of PIttsburgh as a one-off (thanks to @Pinz412 for sharing that one), and possibly may be brewed again, but I'm not holding my breath for that.

    But, yes, I'd buy those two beers again in a heart beat...

    Late note: as some trading BAs know, I've done trades for specifically for Stroh's, so there should be no surprise here...:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I drank a lot of that when it was in town.

    Apparently, it is still being brewed:

    But like so many others, importation has decreased dramatically. :slight_frown:

    You can even get it in 4 packs now.

    In all honesty. I think that the cherry overpowers the base beer, and I don't remember thinking that in the 90s, so the balance seems off to me. I guess it all comes down to one's expectations. It's extremely well made for what it is, though.

    There's also a cherry Duchesse, which I think is a more successful beer.

    Robin Hood is one of those beers I'd love to travel back in time to try; if only for those cool retro labels.

    My sister in laws fiancé sent me a picture of his dads old beer can collection. Robin Hood Cream Ale was dead center. What a cool can!

    |I looked into that contest a ways back. |Not that I was in any danger of winning, but when I saw that the winner gives up all future rights to the recipe (not that they'd know if I was still brewing it at home...) I was not interested.

    I still have a couple Helios in my cellar. Those turned after some time, got some nice Brett funk to it.

    Maybe reality would not live up to fond memory of this extreme bitter IPA, but would like to revisit

    I’ll second the Victory Yakima Glory suggestion. Also, Smuttynose Durty. I miss those two so much. I could name other beers but these two fit such a unique style that nothing’s really stepped in and filled that void.
