VA coughs up more Red Top OIs

#1

Post by DURTBAGG » Sun Apr 21, 2019 12:15 am

Got out today following a lead from a coworker. His parents owned this land until a week ago when they sold it to a land trust. Plans are already in the works to develop the property into a walking trail park so time is of the essence. Found Neuweilers Beer and 1 face Red Top Ale OIs, along with one lone Jolly Scot Quart. Also found two IRTP Gunther’s Ales that I don’t think are going to make the grade which is a shame as those are tough cans! Also found some other much less exciting stuff. Should end up with 3-4 Neuweilers along with 5-6 Red Tops! The in ground pics are two different Red Tops seeing their first light of day in 80 yrs!

Hey Steve,
Pretty amazing list of brands! You know I am most curious of those Red Top O.I.s. Can't wait to see how they clean up. Regardless, still way cool being able to come dig them in 2019!

So here’s the newest batch of Red Top Ale O/Is to come out of the Southwestern VA woods. Probably the first time in 20 or so years I have dug this label around here. Not great, but not totally horrible either. Probably threw just as many away so there was probably a case of them altogether

Looks like the one on my shelf! I'm sure you were pretty excited to find them, as you haven't had any in your traders for a long time! Maybe we can talk about hitting the woods at the Charlottesville show. Since Conehead moved away I haven't been out digging.

It's the only Red Top OI I've seen with the KY tax lid.

Yes Jim

Same one as the KY whorehouse. Wish those would have cleaned up. I’ll never forget having to rappel down that damn hill just to get at the dump. Thought I was going to vaporlock just getting back up to the car!!
