Re: Solution for viewing ended listings on E-Bay

Here is another way: After clicking on a sold listing, it might give you a similar item with a blue band across the top. In this blue band, click on "listing" in the message: The listing you’re looking for is no longer available." Once the listing appears, click on "See original listing" Yeah, that...

Re: Retro Beer Can Composite List??

The Budweiser and Miller High Life pints came out in 2012. Never saw a matching 12oz. Of course the Pabst is always retro.

Re: Budweiser Flats 44-13 Style Need Year for Archaeology Site

I just finished looking online at "1950s Budweiser ads" and the website http://www.vintageadsandstuff.com/adsbeerbudweiser.html showed quite a few examples. The gold-split Buds were last advertised in 1956. The white-split Buds in 1957. The non-split Buds in August 1958. These are Life magazine ads ...

Re: Old Tap Ale Quart Find

Looking at the original find picture, I notice that all the flats and bottles (can't really see the Ballys) are from the early to mid 1950s. So are the Old tap quarts the older IRTPs or perhaps an unlisted non-IRTP version? I know that rival Massachusetts brewers Croft and Dawson had non-IRTP quarts...

Re: DISCUSS EBAY RESULTS HERE (post auctions in reference section)

You may have noticed that ebay, with their infinite wisdom, has decided to make it more difficult to look at a closed listing. In the case of the link to the fake Stoney's conetop, they take you to a live auction for a Wooden Shoe conetop. Notice the line in blue that says: The listing you're lookin...

Re: The cost of a beer the year you turned 21

I don't quite remember the price of beer, I think a six-pack of Schlitz was about a $1.50.
I do remember that an ounce of good weed was $20.

I placed flags on graves for Memorial Day for three years. It is very humbling to see the markers of those KIA during 1945 just days or weeks before the victory. Free people should never forget their sacrifices.

Re: What are YOU Drinking Tonight?

Having breakfast for supper: hot Italian Sausage, eggs, onions, tomatoes and shredded cheese.
Kona Big Wave Golden Ale (from Colorado), Miller high Life (from Trenton, Ohio) before dinner to loosen up the taste buds.
Long Trail Vermont IPA with supper, then one more for desert.

Re: IT'S OVER !!!! CONGRATS TO THE CHAMPION !

Even though I went with the Purple Cow, I had backed the Trumps in each match up and it was probably a foregone conclusion that a 1930s can would win. Nice to see two New England cans in the final, assuming that the PC is from Cranston, not Troy, NY. Are those two cans the two prettiest cans in the ...

Re: Can Anyone Check This Out?

The Valspar Packaging website has a location at 2001 Tracy St in Pittsburgh which is the other end of the block from Westhall. Google Earth shows the building which looks modern, so it looks like the 1970s buildings are gone and most likely the Krueger cans are also long gone, perhaps sold to a BCCA...

It appears to be one of those custom made novelty items with "your name printed here". Would look great in your mancave. Also available in wall clocks and all sorts of home and garage decorations.
Merely a coincidence that there actually was a Gast brewery back 80 years ago.

Looking at the 4th picture, the Hamms bottle carton has the design with the trees but the cans are all with sunrays. When did Hamms change their designs from sunrays to trees?
