To find where you can buy, you can set how many miles you're willing to travel from your location, by entering zip code.Hopefully that will help.

My father drank some really nasty cheap beer like Real Select and Brown Derby. My grandfather drank Hamms. At about 16 I worked at a restaurant that had Whatney’s Red Barrel on Tap, and used to drink the splash tray. It was the first British beer imported in kegs, though since went out of business. My first beer I bought myself was at about age 17, Miller Draft. Never got carded, in fact my mother would send me to the store to get beer if company was coming and we were out or we only had my father’s crap beer.

I went to that link and see that Genesee is brewing up some pilot batches. I'd like to try that orange honey cream. I did a search but its way too far for me (Charlottesville, Va Wegmans), however there are closer Wegmans, will just have to check, if not, ask if they can get them. Worth a shot.

Schmidt Special Import. I think it was brewed in Canada, but that's probably me thinking it had to be imported from somewhere. It was hard for me to find, but if I found a place that had it I always bought some. Smooooth and tasty.

I have been drinking Schlitz for about a year now. They went back to their original recipe. I like it!

Did you ever call it "Natty Boh"? That's something I never heard until relatively recently.

In addition to seeing Hamm's pop up here a lot recently I've seen more Old Style and even some Old Milwaukee lately.

Stroh's was a favorite in the area I grew up. It's still pretty easy to find there. I haven't had one for years.

I agree with Lowenbrau, and Lowenbrau Dark, beers I enjoyed in the ‘80’s. I miss Schlitz too, though one poster can find it, I cannot find it in California.

My dad used to drink Olympia. Looks like it's still around.
