Re: BCCA Board of Directors voting

I run into the lockout problem almost every time I try to log on to the BCCA website. I can't remember which of my passwords I use for this site, and it gives me only one or two tries before I'm locked out. Really frustrating. I had it written down at my last job, but I don't have those notes here.

What about the MASH can? You didn't forget to include that in the deal did you? I doubt he did that.

Bud Bock arrived yesterday. I remain extremely grateful to the Chapter for giving me the opportunity to win a can I've wanted since I was a kid but have never been able to find while dumping or been able to afford when I saw them at shows.

Re: New Acquisition Wednesday

Was lucky enough to score this cool tin tacker from Dixie recently. Apparently, their merchandise is flying off the shelf since news of the name change.

Re: What is Dixie Dave going to do???

Can I ask one related question here? When did Colt 45 Malt Liquor actually first appear on the market? I'm curious as to how this fits into the timeline of the lawsuit against Dixie over the 45 name.

Re: What is Dixie Dave going to do???

I will have to research how early I can find Dixie referred to as "Dixie 45."

Dixie was called Dixie from 1907. I have an article from the paper from then that talks about the brewery opening and has a drawing of the building captioned "the Dixie Brewery"

Re: What is Dixie Dave going to do???

Something like Sebewaing is exactly what I'm looking for. They voluntarily changed the name of the brewery in an effort to expand the appeal of their product. It didn't work. Shame because that is a good-looking can with the pheasant.
