I quit drinking 30 years ago and …. I was a heavy drinker in those days.

Saw this photo and counted the brands I have tried.

There are 8 below from the old days.

Name the 8 brands from those days and you win.

I’ve never been a beer drinker.
My line up would be with sugar from Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, Bubble Up, Orange Crush, Coca Cola, or Hire’s Root Beer.

Nah! Never did acquire a taste for beer… I always said you could put it back in the horse!

Drank my fair share of liquor by the time I was 30 and decided I’d leave the rest for the “up -n-coming”
drinkers :-)

ok … hint… lived in Denver area 30 years ago…. but grew up in Boone & Story County Iowa areas.
In those days their wasn’t much of a selection and certain brewery’s and smaller brands were more local and less distributed.

Iowa in the 70’s was 3.2 beer. Moved away from my home state at 19 and never moved back.

Where’s the Blatz and Colt45? And I used to drink the crap out of Falstaff, so where is that also? Geez, I even had an old sweatshirt with “Blatz for Lunch ‘Bunch” on it!

Oh yeah! How about Carling Black Label? ”... Oh Mabel… Black Label,... Carling Black Label Beer…” . Geez I used to sing that in my sleep…

I don’t know what you mean by “the old days” but Oly was one of the beers of my youth. And that definitely qualifies as the old days in my book. (Rainier was also around back then)

And as long as we’re discussing crap beer, they’ve left out Heidleberg and Lucky Lager. Oh, and Rheinlander – 3 quarts for a dollar – a fan favorite on college campuses of the 60’s.
