Goebel flats - white print vers

#1

Post by JAL » Fri Apr 12, 2019 9:41 am

Are the Goebel flats with the white print anything, or just a common variation?

Just different variations of the same label. The Private Stock is tougher than the Beer. The chicken-less zip is very tough.

Going to concur with Chuck - the Private Stock 22 is a desirable as a zip and tough as a flat. I've been seeing a few more of the flats pop up as time goes by, but once upon a time it was considered a legitimate rarity.

The second one in your post is obtainable.

And yes, the chickenless zip is a very elusive can. There's a good read called Brewed In Detroit by the late Peter Blum, who had been a long time employee of Stroh Brewing Co and archivist. This particular label design is the first to have been issued under Stroh's ownership, after they bought the defunct Goebel Brewing Co at auction, and is described by Blum effectively as an attempt at "craft-brewing" the formerly popular brand in an effort to resurrect it. The strategy must have worked because by the late 60s, Goebel had gained some regional recognition again. But the fact remains that this particular can - the first in a long run of Goebel variations to dispense with the familiar Bantam logo - was a very limited release in 1964 and is arguably among the toughest of the late-issue labels.

Thanks for indulging me. Did I mention I have a big soft spot for Goebel...?

Depends if you consider Dull/Enamel vs Shiny/Metallic a difference. That is difference between 71-8 and 71-9. The following is from my website, and you can see more details about the following Goebel cans at http://www.mbcinfo.com/mi/data/Brewerie ... ewery.html

$6 for shipping? I bet it is only costing the seller $5.50. I was going to bid on that can but not if he is going to gouge me on the shipping. :razz:
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

Just tell him you'd buy it if he can send for free, free shipping, I bet he'd go for that. Give it a try :razz:
