I found an old school pull tab at Letchworth this year, where would that come from? It didn't look all that old

I have a vintage Genny red eye can on the desk right beside my computer. Tin bottom, tin body with a seam up the side, aluminum top and a removable throw away aluminum pull tab. It says GENESEE BEER cold aged, on the outside of the can.

I had a can of Schlitz like that. But I haven't been able to find it for the last year or so and the wife is pleading ignorance...

Speaking of Old Milwaukee, I have this old picture of my Dad back in November of 1979 when he took this 10 pointer. Check out the can in his hand.

Here's a bottle I found in the woods and now use as a spitter- Rhinegold Chug a Mug bottle. Clearly from the background you will see my favorite cold one! High Life- The Champagne of Beer!

Wish the pic of the Rhinegold bottle was better- It's a good bottle

I had a Rhiengold Chug a Mug unopened in the grey bottle...In fact it may STILL be on the downstairs snackbar at my ex-wife's ( formerly OUR) house...

 

The first time I ever drank a whole quart of beer it was Miller High Life..

 

A couple of buddies and I gave a local wino $2.00...That gave him enough money to buy us each a quart  of Miller's and himself a pint of muscatel.  We drank the beer out on the dike behind the high school.. I was 15 at the time.

Those are the good old days Pygmy ... No self respecting wino would help a kid out like that these days.... What a shame!

Was actually asking about the beer but that other part works too.

Milk Stout. Was actually pretty good. Coincidentally, matches my wife's iPhone and Fitbit.

I've been to the Left Hand brewery several times in Colorado. Great beer.

Perfect pairing. Venison steaks cut into bite sized pieces , half onion , bacon sautéed in cast iron with a pat of butter. Little dry rub. Cooked to perfect medium rare. This beer has been in the cold cellar for a year. Love Belgian yeast. They know how to make beer.

How long can you effectively store beer? Mine only lasts a few days...

Ha. Barley wines, imperial stouts , Belgians can be stored for years. Very little light and cooler temps are a must
