    Billy Beer

    an entire case of the old pull tab Billy Beer cans
    they were shotgunned from the bottom so all the tabs are in tact /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    funny thing is that were really dirty, i figured they were trash at this point, but i cleaned one up, and it looks like new!
    the 25 years of dust made a very good protective coating!

    seeing how i'm only 23 i was never able to taste Billy Beer...
    anyone out there have it before? i'm a huge fan of pabst blue ribbion, was it any similar?

    interesting... of all the old tin and aluminum beer cans ive come across over the years ive never heard of billy beer, cool. must be cuz im 24, oh well.. thats a good find there /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    ive got alot of old good shape tin and aluminum oldie beer cans that i found mainly in livestock sale barns and in an occasional old car in a barn, but havent found any good ones in a couple or three years now, so im done collecting i think. ill do something with the cans i have some day, ive almost tossed them a couple times already, hmm..

    good luck

    now i'll admit i like the fancy brew pub beers and higher class beer, but when i buy beer just to drink, its always PBR, so cheap and its so much better than the other light beers in its class... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    fancy beers have thier place, and that place is impressning fancy friends at fancy* parties. other then that, I prefer bud, bud light, and natural light. I know, generic and `just water with a funny taste' but I'll gladly swill them any day I can. besides, these `Kwality beers' usually taste like ass IMHO. give me a 24oz can of natural light any day...

    *(by fancy I mean keggers, where you have kegs filled with beer from the local breweries)

    I will drink it, but I don't spend my $$ on anything that says "light" on the can/bottle. I figure they are screwing me out of 1/2 of what I want in a beer...taste.

    What do having sex on the beach and a Coors Light have in common?
    They are both fu%*ing damn near water...
