    Budweiser, shaefer's, pearl.. basically any US made mass produced beer is nasty. I have not been able to drink the crap since I went to Germany and tasted real beer.

        There current claim is that they are now using their old formula from the 60s.

        I never liked this one either

          My worst jump story:
          My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
          As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
          No lie.

            Some outfit bought up Rheingold's old properties (trademarks, et al) and relaunched the brand about ten or twelve years ago. How it compares to the old stuff I can't say, as the original Rheingold went belly-up when I was nine years of age.

              The Swedish Spendrup beer! The brewery sent Herc loads of it to the Swedish contingent in Yugoslavia. Obviously to get rid of it. They did......as the good neighbors we are we had to help them...

                I remember when Rheingold was the official beer of the NY Mets!

                The last time I drank Rheingold was when I was in college (~1978)... It must've been the Miller version though, because they shut down the operation in 1976.

                Supposedly the new Rheingold will be available here in Texas at Spec's...

                  In the dark recesses of my memory I recall Schaefer being the Mets' official beer.



                  Later on it was Bud.



                  But evidently you're right: early on it was Rheingold.



                  But at the Real Stadium, it was Ballantine Ale.

                      Hey Marc, one beer that always intrigued me was from the Trommer's Brewery in New York City. It was one of the few remaining old time breweries that used only barley malt and no cereal adjuncts or sugars in its beer. It went out of business ages ago, but I always wondered how good of a beer it was..

                        Swedish beer, it brings me some not so fond memories from late 90's. Bought case of some Swedish beer from cruise ships tax free shop. That beer, I don't remember its brand, was undrinkable. Though I got one use for those uncorked beer cans. They made quite nice air rifle targets. Just shaked them well and ping-whoosh

                          Has anyone ever tried or developed a taste for Belgian Lambic beer? Bacteria is intentionally introduced to produce Lambic, cloudy, flat and sour, beer, I've intentionally avoided it, VERY unappealing:

                          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambic_beer
                          Lambic is in effect the raw material, it is not meant to be had as such but to be used as a base for making finished products like Geuze or the various fruit beers derived thereoff.

                          Geuze(pure) is enjoyable as a thirst quencher, one or two on hot summer day, the fruity derivatives are fairly popular with women here,

                          for a taste of what it can be made into I'd advise this one:

                          http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/rodenbach-grand-cru/1194/

                          All in all it's incomparable with the beers in the pils family, it's a completely different product.

                            I had to look that one up, but I'm glad that I did.

                            Though few remember it today, the Bushwick section of Brooklyn was one of America's leading brewing centers through the 1950s and into the 1970s. Its pilsners were unique for more reasons than just their highly hopped character. A close look at these die-hard pre-Prohibition beers reveals a colorful history.

                            One of the brewing centers that produced notable pre-Prohibition-style beers during the first half of the twentieth century was the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York. These post-Prohibition Bushwick breweries included Trommer's, F&M Schaefer, Piels, Liebman, Ehrets, Goldenrod, Old Dutch, Charles Schafer, and Schlitz. The pilsners produced by these breweries are worthy of attention by home, pub, and microbreweries because of their distinctive style and their historic place in American brewing.

                            "The Bushwick Pilsners: A Look at Hoppier Days," by Ben Jankowski, Brewing Techniques, Jan/Feb 1994
                            I'd heard that Bushwick had been a focus of German and German-American settlement, but that was decades before I was born. Henry Miller lived there for a time, as well as in neighboring Ridgewood, so both neighborhoods featured prominently in his writings, but all of those German breweries were defunct long before I could freely swill. In recent years, outfits like Brooklyn Brewery have endeavored to reestablish quality brewing in Kings County, and some of them are pretty good.

                              I'm not crazy! (Okay, maybe I am.) I knew that the Mets had had a relationship with Schaefer.







                              Then again, Schaefer appears to have gotten around.

                              As did Rheingold, of course.

                              Apparently Schaefer was the US' No 2 beer behind Budweiser as recently as the early 1980's. Here I am, learning new things every day.
