I haven't had a Fallstaff in a long time . . . . . . . .
I was thinking of Stag when I posted that, I can't even remember what Falstaff tastes like, good, bad, or otherwise.

Its in the same league as these:












Working man's beer.

Blue collar beer.

Red neck beer.

The beer that men drank after a long day of hard work.

didn't say you missed it either

we had a Falstaff brewery in town and generations of people from the neighborhood drank it
the rest of town called it flat stuff

in the south part of town flat stuff was on tap
in the east...schittz
in the west and a lot of small towns...pbr
in the north a lot of hamm's

everybody too young to be legal thought bud was the one

at that time we were around 170k but there were some firmly held opinions about beer

might as well add coors to your list and maybe pearl

a lot of local beers went into the toilet when their recipes or post processing was changed to allow them to be sold in distant locales

we drank them all in hard hat bars
pool tables were a quarter a game and the only women worked the bar if there were any
I drank with old men not kids
so it was steady drinking, done well, not trying to impress anyone
I never understood the amateurs
nor did I like kids much

everybody still ended up shit-faced but it was the quality of the experience
everybody was at work on time...except for the kids who drank with kids
you might be blind drunk but you were ready to hit it

All beer winds up there.

You don't buy beer, you rent it.

I'm mostly a bourbon drinker now, but back in my beer drinking days I liked Hamm's and Olympia okay, if it was so cold it hurt your teeth.
Otherwise it tasted like........ not so good.

Beer must be so cold it is almost, but not quite, frozen.

Any warmer and it tastes like licking the inside of a car tire innertube.

Any colder and it is like a beer Slurpee.

When I was 15-16 I would slip into the bars on skidrow in downtown Ft Worth and drink. Falstaff was a popular beer back then and it is what I always ordered. It was not a bad beer, not at all. Drank some Pearl too......also not bad. Lone Star was the worst of the bunch, I avoided it.
I have had some bad beer, but most has been decent enough if you are thirsty on a hot day.

When I was living in Mexico in '70 I never found a bad Mexican beer. Some were better than others, but none were undrinkable. At around .12 cents a bottle it was hard to complain anyhow. Bohemia was my favorite.....more carbonization and a distinct flavor.

I think the worst beer I have ever tried was a 6 pack of Big Flat from Walgreens. Raccoons love beer, and after trying the first one I gave the rest to them. They wouldn't touch it. It was indeed flat and without flavor...just pathetic!

Been craving a beer lately......may get a 6 pack and drink one.
Regards!

Worst of the worst.....


Top notch!

The best cartoon ever made. I think I have all the Goscinny&Uderzo albums. Goscinny was the story-teller, though, and the albums coming after his death just aren't the same quality.

I should dust them off and read through them again
the apartment we rented in Paris this year had a massive collection in hardcover, in the bathroom conveniently for light reading
