    2. Budwieser (Bottles)
    3. Mad Dog 20/20 (Glass Wino Wine)
    4. Boone's Farm (Glass Wino Wine)
    5. Popov Vodka (Plastic Bottle)
    6. Cutty Sark Scotch (Glass Bottle, swanky)

    Cans just didn't get much play, and beer was always better from glass than from aluminum even then.
    Me too, and very true. Mickey wide mouths, used to play quarters with those.

    [QUOTE=Borgoguy;4533142]JW, how friggin' insane were those days? Guys now have no clue how "small town"/tight a$$ed everything was. I'm from the time when cops would pull you over for being loaded, then follow you home to make sure you got there and turned off the car before killing yourself or someone else. Seems unthinkable today.


    This is no lie. I once awoke on the back porch with my keys in my breast pocket with a note. "You owe your uncle ------- dinner, and I know him and I will check" in my pocket. The P.S. to the note. "Your car is park by the 7-11 on Stewart ave across form the catlick school". Never happen today, even if you are on the job.

    I was a beer can collector. I think you are confusing this with Schmidts of Philadelphia. I believe this, without the s on the end, was from Minnesota.

    High school beer for me was a semi-warm 12 pack of natty ice. Awful awful stuff but did the job fast haha. And even 8 years ago it was only about $8 for 12.

    Drinking Molsons & Grolsh was our first 'step up' into Imported Beer Land.
    The room always 'oooh'd and aaaahh'd' when someone walked in with those....we figured they probably stole them (or the money to buy them)

    Lol, my friend got a job at the local beer distributor (what were they thinking hiring him) and started "forgetting a few cases outside the back door every couple of days", that was when we started with all the great imports and eventually ended up with cases and kegs on the regular, if its free its for me

    LOL

    I remember getting pulled over and the cops made us pour the beer in the ditch. One kid decided to be a hero and shotgunned an entire beer right in front of the cops . Cops let us walk home and took the guzzler to the police station and called his parents.

    ditto Heineken was pimp juice

    I just remember Heineken, Becks, St. Pauli Girl, Guiness and Bass Ale. Probably couldn't have named another beer.

    There is always that guy in the group. Always. Maybe it's a "putz gene".
