    Drank this cheap stuff in college - 99c 6 (so was rolling rock at that time)
    Complemented Pizza very well
    Got them to sponsor our softball team - The Fort Schuyler Crusaders
    Still in biz as Saranac




    Worst beer ever -possibly - King Kullen's - did like the keep on trucking vibe of the lil' king




    Maybe a&p was worse - made by champale



    If Timmy had a brewery he could revive this marque

    This thread . . . oh, the mammories

    We drank all the usual suspects:

    Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill -- awful but I think every kid in the northeast drank it at one time or another

    Busch beer --- didn't even know Grand Union had its own beer, but in HS someone else had to buy the booze (I didn't look old enough) so we always went to the packie

    My other favorite back then for a quick buzz without all the cans (makes me ill just thinking about that nasty taste now)

    From 1977 to about 1979 that was the beer of choice amongst me and my friends when we really felt like going out on the town big time.

    I think it was basically Bud in a different bottle.

    YES!!!
    This was what we bought in college when we wanted to buy the "good stuff."

    One of my college freshman dorm-mates was from Colorado and she would bring as much Coors as she could when she returned from a trip home. Back then you couldn't get Coors on the east coast, not sure why, so for us it was a real treat when we got to drink a Coors.

    us too. cans had two holes rather than a pull tab - very exotic, added to the
    legend

    I remember when they finally started selling this on the east coast--maybe late 70's or early 80s? My buddy's family had a house in Hampton Bays and it was the only beer we'd buy that summer because it had that totally unique factor going for it--we thought we were kings drinking it

    Coors was much smaller BITD used all natural ingredients and no preservatives which made distribution eastward x-pensive. The beer had to be brewed, transported, and stored under refrigeration, and its shelf life was limited to one month.

    We did the same thing, hanging out in the woods in the south of end of Toledo.

    When I was at college in the mid 70s, it was a huge deal when one of our suite mates went out west and brought some back. Just tasted better than the copius amounts of the East Coast brews we were imbibing.

    As was stated earlier - when it was first introduced outside of CO - it required that it be refrigerated at all times - a lot of bars/liquour stores did not follow protocol - was lot of skunky Coors floating around....
