Pabst Blue Ribbon & Reingold make a come back!
Recently in NYC, I've noticed a lot of bars in the lower east side have Pabst blue ribbon - in cans, no less. I thought it was a freaky thing done by the owner, just to be strangely different. (This is pretty common-place in the LES) Anyway, I've noticed this a few times and on one occasion my buds and I ordered some PBR just to see what our dads/granddads drank before they went off to war. We laughed at how odd this seemed. Well, this is evidently making a come back and is a 'trendy' beer these days. I think its pretty funny...
Who woulda thought?

Yep. There were some others like Hamm's, Cook's and a super cheap brew named Hanley's which ran about $4.00 for a case of 24.
When I was in High School, the best selling premium beer was Schlitz. Miller High Life was very popular and Budweiser was considered a Black Man's beer. The beer of legend was Coors which was not available in Texas. We would pool our money and send a mule to the Oklahoma border to fetch a few cases for us. How times have changed. As a young man, Miller was my favorite and I hated Bud because it was so sweet tasting. Now Bud is my favorite domestic brew. My favorite is Heineken.

Shlitz was the cheapo beer here in NY when I was growing up. Miller too, but that never went away. Miller Genuine Draft made a come back a few years ago. Reingold was the Mets beer way back when. That too is being seen every now and again. Pabst BR are the cans you would find when you snuck into your neighbors back yard and find a can in his car, that hadn't left the backyard in 40 years.
