They were thought of as bottom of the barrel back then.
I was going to say if they try to stock "ic" don't bother. My brother went to school in Scranton where the nickname was "Ima Coalminer"😁. Tried it once and didn't need to again.

Yeah. I figured it would be too tough to read at the posted resolution. I'm more concerned about fouling facial recognition than anythin.

Its good to see another beer on the local market. Growing up in San Antonio we really only had three beers and all were locally brewed.

Lone Star - When out and about, at a meal, in a bar
Falstaff - When ya needed to quench your thirst, a working mans beer when working
Pearl - When ya wanted something light, or you were constipated... Ha

When my Boy's are home it is always interesting to see what beers they are sipping. Sweet, bitter, citric, herbal, foreign in more ways than one. And then when they run out, sipping on one of my Miller Highlife's with a smile...

All Hail Beer...

The local German towns outside of San Antonio drank Pearl by the truck loads. Nasty lol.

Ahh the good old days, in the early 70's I used to buy PBR by the case, 24 12 16 oz returnable refillable bottles, for $4/case (plus deposit on the bottles and reusable case) from the local PBR distributer which was very near the Ortlieb's Brewery in Philadelphia. Used to get three cases at a time. Part of those beer shopping trips included picking up a loaf or two of Jewish Rye from Kaplan's bakery which was nearby, and loading-bungeeing the whole shebang on to the rear carrier of my bicycle, first a Sears then later a Raleigh Sports 3 speed after I cracked the frame on the Free Spirit. Bent up several Pletcher carriers until replacing them with cheap but all steel rear carriers from Pep Boys.

In the '80s we would go for whatever 12-pack we could get for $3.00 that week, and sometimes that would be Pearl or Lone Star. Also: PBR, Oly, Hamm's Burgermeister, Old Milwaukee, Heidelberg, Milwaukee's Best, Meisterbrau, etc...

If you could not figure out the cap, you did not get another beer... college rules.

We didn't have Lucky in Phoenix in the 80s. I enjoyed many when I lived in Portland and Vancouver, though!

Reminds me of another PA (now defunct) beer. I collected beer cans as a wee lad and had a few of these, despite being in WI.
Schmidt's beer had a collection of cans that depicted a variety of outdoor activities.

When we could catch a ride there they sold "back door beer" that were various types of mostly keg beers that were reported as skunky, or just too old to sell. A gallon of whatever they had on hand was $4. Often it was Pabst, Keystone, and other such terrible beers from the start and only worse with age and a bit of skunking. Just the same, $4 for you and a couple of friends to chip in, add gas money, and have something to drink....These same times were often celebrated with Boone's Farm, Mad Dog, Thunderbird and other type 'ripple'.
