A couple of my buddies in college used to drink Pfeiffers. Their motto was "No two taste the same!" We bought a bunch of Hamm's in twist off glass bottles from Sharret's on University and Raymond. $2.10 a 12 pack and there was like a $.75 return on them. It was like they were paying us to drink it. Drank lots of Schmidt back when it was still Schmidt. They were major contributors to the barley breeding program at the U once upon a time. My fave tho was Special Ex. We'd have our quarterly end of the quarter party in our basement apartment on Brewster St. We'd get 2 16's of Special Ex and finish 'em off with an 8 of Schlitz Bull. Guaranteed to end badly.

We my dad and the next door neighbor used to make a beer run to Mendota Heights for that 3 f'er $10 deal.  In the early 70s they'd fill the trunk of an old Plymouth Fury or Buick LeSabre depending on who drove.  I went along for the sucker.

(I remember when the neighbor's daughter bought a Olds Cutlass that had a trunk much smaller than the Fury - he called it the Buttless Cutlass.  But I digress.)

I remember hearing that story about the Pfeiffer's and Schmidt too.  I don't know though.  :scratch: Pfeiffer's always had more of a bite than Schmidt, but that mean it didn't never happen.  I always liked the unsubstantiated variant of the story that said Pfeiffer's came from the bottom of the Schmidt vats.  :rotflmao:

There was always one Special Ex guy in every crowd.  When I moved into my house in 93 the neighbor across the street was still a Special Ex guy.  I never cared much for Ex, but don't get me wrong, I still drank his Green Death and lived to tell about it.  :drinking:

The one Special Ex kegger we had was straight out of Animal House. People puking & peeing in front of the apartment. Old ladies banging on the floor above us with their broomsticks to get us to turn the tunes down. One of our married friends left the party with a large breasted woman, not his wife. Smashed his car into a power pole. When he got home he peed on the bedroom floor. His wife never let him come to one of our parties again.

One beer I really liked & bought whenever I found it was Schmidt Extra Special. Only bought the returnable bottles altho I vaguely remember it also in cream colored cans. Last time I saw it was in the late 80's when I got a case in Owatonna. A lot of turmoil & upheaval in the brewing industry since then. Have no idea who owns what anymore.  :confused:

Remember the Schmidts wide mouth bottle? Early Saturday mornings drink 1/4 of that and top it off with Boones Farm Tickle Pink wine. The breakfast of champions many, many a softball tournament weekend.

Fondly. Did many a 6 pack of Big Mouths between Calvin & Rugby ND on my way home Friday nites. Could shave with those bottle tops or at very least slice your finger off. Schmidt Light was popular too back in those days for those of us watching our girlish figures (or not).

Basically I drink anything I can get my mitts on, especially today. Today marks 23 years since I smoked my last Pall Mall.

Congrats Roony and what a wise decision to quit them.  I quit in 1987 and was ready.  I had quit many times and didn't stick.  When my new truck started to stink like an ashtray it gave me more reason to quit.

Pall Malls killed my dad. Or maybe it was the stress of going to work everyday and trying to raise a family while working 2 jobs.

Sounds like it was a Tuesday night beer run.
I went to go stock up on beer and noticed yesterday that the price on 4 of the fancy 12 packs I buy went up from $15 to $20? I asked what gives? They said, “well the 6 packs are $12 so this is more in line with that price.” No crap. That is why I bought the 12 pack instead of the 6. They were way cheaper.

This time of year we always had homemade Tom and Jerry's.  I will look for the recipe.  They are good but man they warm you up.  Pretty sweet too so can't drink a lot of them but the first one or two are great. Been a family tradition for many decades.  Mix with a combo of rum, brandy, or even whiskey.  My Grandma and Grandpa started it.

No it is a mixture of eggs, vanilla, sugar, nutmeg etc.  Put some almost boiling water in a cup add a big shot of booze and then a big dollop of this and stir it in.  Will warm you right up.

I just this morning scored a bottle of Blantons, had to purchase $100 worth of stuff to qualify so I grabbed a bottle of piggy back and a Willet Pot Still, so I'm set for a little while. I wish I could have got there earlier I missed out on the Stagg.  :angry2:

I prefer Manhattans.  A family favorite of Dad, Uncles, and brothers.  I use Paul Masson Grand Amber but will use what ever is available.
