interesting and memory jolting. In CO we could still get 3.2% at 18 years old. OR the liquor store where the guy never checked ID's. Dude was a sports fanatic - I would just walk in and ask "whos winning" or "hows he game" and that was about all it took. Granted I had a full beard in HS.

for the 3.2; Coors light, Michelob, kittle kings, Stroh's, moose head. ok, almost anything and everything...
A little bar in the middle of the desert travelers and off road enthusiasts alike frequent. Girls walk in with no ID and the owners asks them: "Are you 21?"
If they answer "yes" then they get served, if they start telling a tale then they are refused.

1969 we paid $7.20 for a case of Bud, that is a rusty case of Bud, at the R&R Ft Derussy PX on Waikiki.
Cigs were 13 cents a pack, $1.20 a carton.

NCO Club on Oahu in 1970 had 10 ounce throw-away bottles of Beer for 35 cents. Same10 ounce bottles were $3.50 in Waikiki.
Wife's MaiTai was $5.

Like most, we drank whatever we could get but was usually budweiser if we could afford it, Busch, keystone light or rolling rock most of the time though.
We found it was cheaper and more effective to pair a case of beer with a bottle of Castillo Silver rum, though. We knocked down a ton of that nasty stuff back in the day.
I'm younger than alot here, but a few years back, I continued the rolling rock tradition cause I could get it at $15 for a 30 rack. That's the best deal I can remember specifically.

well mad dog was $1.50 a bottle got two kids falling in the fish house holes. and the beer was that 12 pack that had the tin foil interior to keep it cold
For beer it was usually Stroh's along with a fair amount of Boones Farm. Oh, and the Mad Dog 20/20....worst hangover of my life EVER!

Those prices are why they didn’t want GI’s handing out or reselling PX bought beers to tourists on the beach.
United had a $85 RT with cheap rooms so lots of broke students befriended us.

PBR. The whole bunch of us drank PBR. The Greek guy that ran the deli and store down the street called us the PR gang. The name stuck for years.

Dad used to let me sip his very occasional (holiday) Guinness Draughts but usually Extra Stouts, Uncle's Sierra Nevada (SNPA)
12-13 my first full finished beer i snagged after a party and somehow drank was a SNPA (Needless to say, about 10yrs after this I was buying SN Celebration by the case)
13-15 Busch, Bud, Coors Light, Natty Light, some Keith Stone.. Whatever
15-17- a whole lot of $1.63 Schlitz Bull Ice's and cheap dirty 30's. The occasional $1 Camo can (Range from 8.5-12.2%) Tecate when available. SNPA, Blue Moon.

Senior year I got into homebrewing and real beer, and after so many Bull Ice's already could easily win a case race of something like Natty/Busch Light.

Almost 6mo. dry right now, somehow. I honestly believe that real beer is pretty damn healthy. Had I not gone back to Steel Reserve/Camos, shine, and plastic chugs of bootleg Country Club, I wouldn't have developed stage 3 cirrhosis.. at 29..

I'll have a Busch NA, hop seltzers, and wanna try Lagunitas new IP(N)A. Will probably get back into brewing real table beers at some point (<2.1%). Still got a long time left.

Lived back east and drinking age was 18 at the time. Football mass and a fake ID meant no problems buying beer or wine as a 16-17 year-old. Bud, Schlitz, PBR, and Boone's Farm usually filled the coolers at party time.

One night a buddy and I split an 8-pak of Colt 45 ponies. Our big mistake was stopping at a Burger King as the night ended. Nothing pretty happened afterwards.
