Just read an article on Yahoo about beers that should be brought back. Some of these are memories and some still available in the Sunshine State.
BALLANTINE - I had my first Ballantine when I was in the service. A few of my barracks buddies went to the base bowling alley and there it was, only 3.2 beer but to me it was tasty.
STROH'S - Sorry never tried it.
PABST - Good old Pabst Blue Ribbon, still available at some places here, but no longer at the grocery store.
NATIONAL BOHEMIAN - Never heard of it.
OLYMPIA - Never saw this one on a shelf.
LONE STAR - Must be a Texan beer.
SCHLITZ - Another Trenton favorite, it was available here for times, but long gone now.
OLD MILWAUKEE - Still available in Florida or as my sons call it P--S Beer.
SCHAFFER - The one beer to have when you are having more than one.
There is one that Trenton, NJ is famous for "CHAMPALE." This brew started in 1939 by the Metropolis Brewing Company, located on Lamberton and Lalor Streets. When they brewed you smelled it. My grandparents lived a few blocks away.
If any of you have a favorite beer not produced now, send me a comment. Thanks.
