Grain Belt Ale

#1

Post by Giant Beer » Sat Jun 29, 2019 8:27 am

What is the story on the Grain Belt Ale cone top? What makes it so darn elusive? Limited production? Distribution area?


WI, MI, MN 12 oz. flats and cones,
crowntainers, 12 oz. tabs,
"Vegas" themed cans, cans with a mountain/snow/skiing theme, and
12 oz. Michigan tax stamp cans

My knowledge is pretty much limited to the fact that I don’t have one. I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen one in person.

I am guessing it tasted god-awful so sales were bad. Maybe produced one year? Being from Minnesota I have seen a couple but a very tough can. It looks a lot like the beer so you may get lucky and find someone who doesn't see the ale on it....

I got mine as part of a lot of several cans on eBay, not noted as an Ale. Displayable front but big hole on the side. Very tough can to find...
