Remember that beer you see above? Mickey's with the wide mouth? Malt Liquor really but still.
That was one of the few beer choices back in the early eighties. To tell you the truth Mickey's was just a novelty because of the wide mouth but here are the others that were the basic six pack beers. Let me know if I'm missing any....
Miller (the champagne of beers) - We'd sometimes get the pony size.
Bud - Never a fan of.
Michelob - this was a bit pricier but was pretty smooth. Remember pulling the loop off of the label? And if it didn't cut the words off it was good luck or some shit? Jerome Desmond in 10th grade claimed, "Man, NOBODY gets sick on Michelob. It's the way it's brewed!" Then proceded to puke after having four.
Lowenbrau - One of the few fancy ass imports.
Genesee 12 horse - Gross.
Genesee Cream Ale - King of the diarrhea inducing beers.
Molson - Imported from Candada. Known to get easily skunked.
Moosehead - The moose is friggin' loose! This was my favorite in 12th grade.
Heineken - Pricey back in the day. Always had a weird aftertaste but I'll still get one once and a while for the memories.
I'm sure there are a few others but that was about it folks. (Here in Southeastern PA)
