Just like they did back in the day, Hudepohl is featuring Reds baseball on their beer cans. Great to see this. :thumbup:

"Do you wanna get moody with a Hudy?"

"Do you rock and roll with Hudepohl?"

That's an impressive stock.

Times like these I wish I lived closer to Cincy. I'd like to have a 12er of these commemorative cans. My dad has a huge old beer can collection with some of the more vintage ones.

I wonder if I can special order these from anywhere in Minnesota...

Every beer I drank in college is in that refrigerator. Memories of bad mornings...Country Club and Colt .45. Closest thing to unleaded gasoline I ever knew.

I notices Sterling in there. For cheap beer, it was...nah it was awful too...

That is the most obsessive compulsive fridge I have ever seen. Are those beers arranged geographically?

That's ok WOY, be proud of dating yourself cause I'm going to as well.
Back in the day, lol, I was known in Clifton as a guy who would partake in a draft or two and those beers I favored were of the local variety of course; Schoenling, Hudepohl, Burger and last but not least good ole Wiedemen(sp? Wiedeman?) beer.

Good times back then!!! Can't wait to pick up a twelve pack when available.

1/2 barrels of 6% Schoeling could be had for $48 bucks (plus deposit)

Second that.

Was down at Opening day a couple years back, hanging out enjoying some micro brewery beer at the Rock Bottom, when I noticed they had a stand set up in Fountain Square selling Hudy for $3. It had been many years so I indulged.

They were overcharging for it. :evil:

And that is a very impressive collection there woy. Sadly enough I drank most of them. Is there a Blatz in there somewhere?

My cousin has an unopened six pack of Billy beer.

Black Label, Meister Brau, Natty Bo...ahhh, bad beer, great memories.

Milwaukee's Best, aka "The Beast", was the main beer of choice for my college buddies and me.

Those are definitely college memory beers. Rolling Rock was considered the ultimate swill when I was in school. It some how became a "yuppie" beer and I thought they must have changed it, so I tried one about ten years ago and it was the same crap!

Alas I don't see any of this... which I would write $3.50 checks for a 12 pack at a Pony Keg in Madison Place

My Dad was always known for buying the cheapest beer he could find. And probably because he knew his underage boys were stealing it. Yeah, like he didn't know that when he bought a six-pack and two come up missing, he couldn't do the math?

Back in the late 70's, when I was on leave, we went camping down in Ky. Mom and Dad went into town to get some groceries and Dad came back with a six pack of Cook's beer. I never heard of it. It was a plain white can with "Cook's" in red letters on it. That was it! I don't think he paid a $1 for it. So my brother and I popped one open, took a drink, and looked at each other like "Can you taste anything?". It had absolutely no taste whatsoever, so I couldn't even give it a swill ranking.

I asked Dad just how low was he going to go when it comes to beer? :lol:

So my brother and I hopped in the car and said we were going to get some REAL beer.

We came back with a 12 pack of Strohs. :mooner:

Now I don't know if that's the same F.W. Cooks, out of Evansville, Indiana, that is now out of business, but I can understand why.

The F.W. Cook Company was established in 1853. F.W. Cook Brewing Company grew to become a large brewery (Show Above) with a tavan "The Rathskeller", in the basement of the main FW Cook Brewery building. Some of their labels included: Cook's Bock Beer, Cook's 500 Ale, Cook's Goldblume.

Personally I think both fall far below a fresh poured pint.

But cans work playing softball, or out in the wilderness, they are easier to pack out.

Worst thing about cans is the beer is way more carbonated, it's a belch generator.

Who said Hudy is beer?

There are some bloatarians in Cincinnati who brew what they insist is the old Hudepohl recipe. They say it's the original lager. I've had it- it's a very good beer. And I must say I have a fondness for 14-K, which was on tap free for the taking from my grandfather's refrigerator door. I pulled many a Hudy from that tap. It was a bright, clear crisp brew.

I kid... I have a soft spot for old school mid-west lagers, including Hudy, but as GAC said, $3 a pop sours that memory.

Free beer is the best beer... and a Hudy Beerball in the sink is good start to a party

No worries- but I'm sure the Portland beer market had improved your taste a bit. :beerme:

Yes it is, like the re-released Burger Classic and Hudy Delight, made with the original ingredients, and not the rice and cheap ingredients of what we remember in the 80's and early 90's.

That said, it's better than I remember, but only something I drink when I don't want to get too tipsy/drunk, family gatherings etc.., And I'll take a 14-k or Delight over a Miller or Bud Lite any day.

I'm completely hooked on craft brews, and drink as much local stuff as I can. A nice, hoppy Pale Ale cannot be beat. Mt. Carmel Brewery makes a couple of fine ones, and although Moerlein only distributes locally, looking forward to their new IPA soon...as well as the new Moerlein Lager House bar on the Banks next year.

Can one still get those? Boy does that bring back memories. :lol:

One of Chip and I's fav beers is Warsteiner. I even think one can get it at GABP on occasion. If not, then there is always Christian Moerlein.

I like their mini-kegs too. I get those here at our local drive-thru.
