I love these booze threads, brings back memories. Years ago I drank ( didn't say I liked them) Drewerys, Wiedemanns, Strohs, Carlings Black Label, Fallstaff, Old Crown Ale, Berghoff, Centliver, Blatz, Hoffbrau, Omalleys, Ballentine Ale,Warbird, Mad Anthony. Most of these were brewed in my home town of Ft Wayne Indiana. The only ones that were not were Strohs, Blatz, Alps Brau, Wiedemanns & Drewerys. The Falstaff was the worst I ever tasted but they had a free hospitality room that was almost always open. I was 17 and they didnt care, the employees were always drunk. We had 3.2 % beer for 18 years old and older, then at 21 you could buy 6%. Lets here about some old beers you drank that are not around any longer

Grain Belt in funky little bottles. Way before I was a legal beer drinker. Thought it tasted pretty good as all pilfered beer did.

I used to buy Colt 45 Malt in small cans ( 6 oz) at the Slop Shute ( for you non Marines that was the base bar) for 15 cents a can ( 1962)

Gobel was the cheapest brew for us teenage farmhands back in the day;

We used to pronounce it with a French twang to make it sound more attractive- (szchobell')

Man the hangovers! but we had the cure.

Stegmaier, from York, PA. Dunno if it's still made, but it was the cheapest stuff around about 30 years ago. It tasted like real pisselwasser, pardon my Dutch.

And do you remember (maybe it was just where I grew up) "generic" products?

It was all packaged in plain white with black lettering. They had generic cigarettes, generic canned vegetables...and my favorite...they had generic beer. It was awful. I think there was a Falstaff brewery in Omaha and the generic beer was the dregs they wouldn't put in a Falstaff can.

timb99. Food 4 Less sold the beer. We called in White Light. Like you said, white can, black lettering - LIGHT BEER. The Falstaff bottles had the little word games under the lid.

I stumbled upon an old pic of my senior class of "83" all holding longneck bottles of wiedlemiers {yuck] at the local swimming hole.

The thing that srikes me most is how SKINNY we all looked compared to the kids nowdays. You could see the rib bones on all the guys and the hottie little chicks sporting tiny waistlines.

Man I would give a years worth of prime rib and single malts for one weekend of that fountain of youth!

OICU812- watch your mouth. I am old but not a drunk. I used to be a drunk though LOL. I fianally got smart enough to realize that at 66 years old a hangover just aint gittin it. I limit myself now, too bad I didnt do that when I was younger. No I never heard of 905, thats one I missed
