decoration dept.

production screw up the labeler operator somehow loaded the magazine wrong the bottles made it thru to the packers and into the warehouse without someone noticing
quality control wise its considered a "dump beer" due to the error

Well, I've had a case of Bud like that (mind, that was in 1992 or so), and at the larger-volume stores in my area I can recall recently seeing Yeungling for $15.99-16.99/case anyway. Granted, I live about 50 miles from Pottsville, so that might figure into the equation.

In the philatelic world, the case should be worth 5x more then the usual price.

It's so the brand is easier to see when you are tipping them up. I am surprised more companies haven't caught on. Yuengling is just ahead of the curve. Keep a few unopened, the may be collectors items.

My parents have a few old "tin" beer cans that were printed upside down, along with a few that were never opened but empty. I have an unopened 12 of Spuds McKenzie Santa Claus Bud Lights. I don't know why, but I thought it might be a collectors items since "she" was band from the advertising. Maybe I should try drinking that 25+ year old beer.

Who cares which way the labels are pointing? That's a great price (for my neighborhood anyway).

Tried that with Billy Beer. Had to pay someone to take it away.

Well, if you guys insist on drinking that cork sniffing beer from foreign countries, you may get 1 or 2 with the labels on upside down or worse. I am enjoying reading this while quaffing the "King of Bottled Beers", the " Great American Lager" Budweiser- now owned by a European Brazilian brewing consortium. In 40 years of drinking "The Great American Lager", I've never had 1 with the label upside down.

I am sticking with Miller. It seemed to be working for Brad after he won the Nascar championship Sunday night!

Just to be on the safe side, I drank 1 beer from a previous batch, then one from the new case.

Everything seems ok.

I think.

Wasn't that a wonderful win for Brad, for Dodge, and for Mr. Penske! Wow!!

Oh.

I don't know how to say this. But none of those guys actually drink Miller.

I'm sorry!

But look on the bright side. At least it wasn't Coors!

I know there are other beers available cheap due to a glut because they couldn't ship to storm-damaged areas.

that'd be confusing having the labels upside down...

you'd have to crack the glass bottoms off and drink them holding them like an ice cream cone...
not a good look at the BBQ..... ;)

ahhhh mate.. your beer's upside down and your gums are bleeding...

No it isn't,, here check the label... this way up mate.. cheers..
