Looking for a Canuck one I found this. Embarrassed
Did find this. I was thinking ... too many craft beers to pick one ...
The sign also says Great Lakes. There is some logo with an "F" in the middle that I don't recognize.
When I lived in Virginia, back in the '80s, there was a brewer out near VA Beach named "Chesbay" who brewed a wonderful light lager... as good as any European lager... malty, meaty, clean, robust. That brewery went belly up. It was unpasteurized and shipped in refrigerated trucks. When it started showing up in stores out of the area, it spoiled and got a bad reputation. That brewery closed. I used to drive from Richmond to Norfolk just to stock up.
When I lived near Southern Pines (Aberdeen), NC, in the early 2000s, there was a local beer called "Double Eagle Ale." It was an authentic Scottish Ale using yeast brought over from Scotland where the brewmaster was from. Fabulous beer! They closed, too.
Two local breweries that brewed some of the best beer I'd ever drunk... both closed in less than five years. I live in SC now, and though there are several breweries scattered around the state, none can compare.
Maryland is National Bohemian (often referred to as Natty Bo).
My greatest musical accomplishment is being in a band sponsored by the Arkansas brewery, Diamond Bear.
Yeah ... Couldn't help it,it's funny....I figured it was worth a 24 hour time out.
Mine is Westvleteren Trappist
Yes, this beer was from the Anchor Brewery in San Francisco revived by Fritz Maytag (from the washing machine family). Fritz should really be credited with the "Real Ale" microbrewery movement started in the US in the late '70s early '80s. 'Steam' beer was fermented at temperatures closer to those of an ale using a lager yeast, which would normally prefer cooler temperatures.
If it ain't from E&J, I don't know it.
As far as I'm concerned, beer and horse p¡$$ look and smell the same, so I do not associate beer with the great state of Texas, or with anything, for that matter...except possibly a urinal.
Definitely my favorite! Oops,I forgot,I don't drink anymore.
Who on earth decided that Deshutes should represent Oregon? Oregon should be represented by the beer that pretty much started the small batch "craft" beer phenom...
aka Henry's. Which was neither "craft" or small batch, just marketing strategy from the makers of Blitz back in the mid seventies.
And Washington's should be Olympia...you know, It's The Water Olympia..?
Please don't tell me that my youthful escapades that involved peeing in the pond outside the Olympia brewery were wasted?
Spouse comes from Japan. She arrived on these shores to do her undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania and then post grad in Oregon...where we met.
We were sent to a conference in Seattle about the same time Olympia was running an ad about these little imaginary creatures called Artesians...
We pass through Olympia on the way. So...I asked her to keep her eyes open because the little critters had a nasty habit of just running out into the freeway with wild abandon. And hitting one would be very sad.
Assuming she had seen the ads and knew I was joking.
After a bit I glance at her to see she's bent over focused intently on the road ahead. When I confirmed her suspicion that I was indeed not serious I learned she had a talent I was unaware of.
She's quite the marshal artist. Knows places to strike that cause intense pain and not leave a mark.
We've been married for 33 years. Though I've not got any bruises to prove it.
Minnesota I'd have to say Hamms and Grain Belt. Ain't sure if that's official but for most of my life every bait shop/bar either had a Hamms or a Grain Belt sign out front.
Although I think the most popular beer here is WYBM. (whatever you're buying me)
When you tell people you're from PA they'll sometimes go "Yeah, Yuengling!" Makes me feel weird.
Texas and Oregon have my faves, Shiner and Deschutes.
Looks like Kansas is represented by Free State Brewery, out of Lawrence, Kansas. It opened in the late 1980s - when I was still living there. I think it was Kansas’ first (legal) brewery in close to, or more than, 100 years. They make some good beer.
