Falstaff, Strohs and Hamms (still around but not in the SE), Red White & Blue (used to drink this in high school), Blatz and Champale are all I can think of. Any others?

Growing up my dad's buisness was a Falstaff distributor, which we always had a keg on tap at the house and it was the first beer I really tasted. It was some good stuff.

I'll always remember the commercials for Falstaff...one in particular in the 60s had my dad rollin laughing...it talked about the brewmaster "Papa Joe Griesedieck" and how he would make the fine brew...glad I found it on wiki cause many thought I was pulling errr...making it up...

They have it a couple of places around the US. I had a few in San Antonio at an Irish pub on the Riverwalk and a few at the Irish pub in Downtown Disney, but that's it.

My favorite beer ever. That's all I drank when I was in the Marines and at port overseas.

Anybody remember Malt Duck? It came in Red Grape, White Grape and Apple flavor (pre wine cooler time). Not the best tasting beer by any means, but when I was not of drinking age, it was the easiest beer to get.

We would have parties where we filled a kiddie pool with ice and a couple of cases of it. We called it the Duck Pond. You always put your empty back under the ice and if someone pulled an empty, it was considered a decoy. Like I said, we were under age teens. It was funny back then.

This is the age of beer.....I'm not sure how you could miss any old beer right now, unless it was sentimental for some reason.

So many crappy old beers so little time. Mickey's Big Mouth was an adolescent favorite, Old Style, Schlitz, Dixie, it goes on and on. And we only had a fraction in the South of what they had up north.

I suppose it's possible that this is still around, but I haven't seen it in ages. Winn Dixie used to have it on sale now and then at a good price and I would drink it fairly regularly. I would certainly pick up a 12 pack now for nostalgia's sake if I ran into it.

When Harris County annexed all of Heimlich (except for McMaynerberry), Alamo sales plummeted and has become impossible to find (supposedly it's still on the shelves in some parts of Mexico).
