There’s a lot you might not know about these beer brands

Remember When We Drank Natty, PBR, and 9 Other Cheap Beers?

As you sipped away on some of the most well-known brands on the market, did you ever stop to wonder about their history, why they taste the way they do, or how they got their name? You were probably too busy trying to keep track of how many beers you’ve had to even think about their story, so we’ve taken the liberty to do it for you. For starters, in case you were wondering, the name “Hamm’s” has nothing to do with meat, and PBR stands for Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Check out this round-up of beer facts to learn more about the classic brands, and then, head to one of the best college bars in America to show off all your knowledge. With each costing under $20 for a pack of 12 beers, these brands are truly giving you the best bang for your buck.

Hamm's

German immigrant Theodore Hamm inherited the Excelsior Brewery in 1865. He didn’t intend to venture into the beer business, but his friend and business associate A. F. Keller sought him out for financial support. Little did he know years and years later, college kids would still be happily sipping on his trusted brand for only $12.99 per 12-pack.

Hudy

Hudy — named after its’ founder Ludwig Hudephol — thrived prior to Prohibition. Since then, the rights of the brand and its recipes has sold and relocated two times. Ever sipped on a Hudy 14-K? The “14-K” stands for the beers secret brewing process, consisting of a mixture of grain and golden smoothness.

Iron City

Iron City Brewery was one of the first American breweries to produce lager. Iron City beer continues to be built on 150 years of brewing experience, providing a sweet wheat beer that is light and easy to drink.

Lone Star

Lone Star’s Texas roots stem back to 1883, when Adolphus Busch and his partners built the first large mechanized brewery in San Antonio. In 2005, the brand celebrated 65 years as the National Beer of Texas and designed their current and shield logo. Who knew your cold Lone Star had such embedded, rich history?

Milwaukee's Best

Though their sales have declined over the years, Milwaukee’s Best will always be known for their infamous “can-crush” series. In these ads, men who weren’t “manly” enough were crushed by a giant can of Milwaukee’s Best that fell from the sky. These commercials resulted in their infamous tag-line, “Men should act like men, and light beer should taste like beer.”

Natural Light

Natural Light — better known as “Natty” — doesn’t have as colorful of a past as older brands. Natural Light was, however, Anheuser-Busch’s first reduced-calorie light beer. Thanks to its cheap price tag of $13.99 for 30 cans, it is still one of America’s best-selling beers.

Pabst Blue Ribbon

In 1876, Pabst Blue Ribbon won a gold medal at the Centennial Celebration, the first official world’s fair. After this, Pabst began to hand tie a blue silk ribbon around the neck of each beer to show its award winning pride. This is where the blue ribbon logo stemmed from.

Rogue

Ever heard of a “Brew Pub?” Rogue was one of the first companies to start a Brew Pub — a pub that brews beers — which was housed beneath a 60 seat Pub in Ashland, Oregon. Over the years, they have become a beer company that produces some of the most unique flavors on the market, such as their Beard Beer and Chocolate Stout.

Rolling Rock

If you have ever taken a moment to observe a Rolling Rock bottle, you’ll notice it comes with the number “33” on the back. To this day, no one is certain about what it represents, but according to the Rolling Rock website, there are many theories behind its meaning. For example, many believe the original brewery had 33 steps that separated the brewmaster’s office from the brewery floor. Others claim the secret’s “in the bottle,” for the sum of all of the letters in the ingredients of Rolling Rock equals 33.

Schlitz

Schlitz was originally brewed in 1849 in the basement of German immigrant August Krug. By 1902, over one million barrels were sold, allowing Schlitz to claim the title of the largest brewery in the world. Talk about dedication!

Stroh's

The Stroh family began by brewing their beer in a family-owned inn during the 18th century. Soon after the German Revolution began, Bernhard Stroh immigrated to the United States and established his own brewery in Detroit. Thanks to his German roots, Bernhard had the ability to be the first to introduce the European method of fire-brewing beer to America. Prost!


Beers You Used To Drink

There are certain beers that I just never liked at all but there are a handful of beers that I used to drink that I can't believe I ever liked in the first place.

I can't tell you how much Colt 45 I drank in college but I just don't like it anymore. Many moons ago I also used to drink JW Dundee's Honey Brown, and way back in high school we used to drink and Michelob , Molson Golden, Moosehead, Hamm's, Reingold (what didn't you drink in high school?) but don't think I've had any of those in ten years or more.

What beer did you drink a lot of at one time and now just can't believe you ever liked?

Yeah, even when I was drinking a lot of Canadian (because it's what my older brothers bought) I'd aspire to beer-snobbery, and I'd use my fake ID to get into beer bars with my friends and drink Hobgoblin and Hoegaarden and ooh and aah at the beers that tasted like something.

(by the time I was of age I had pretty good taste.)

Denny's Evil Concoctions

Grande Megalomaniac

Wildcat strong for camping. 6.5% and cheap. Actually tasted better than canadian IMO.

Coors light cause my firends did. Then I started drinking water and got a better buzz.

Guiness, now I raely drink it cause ut's not stouty enough for me.

When I was a kid, Rolling Rock was the el cheapo crap beer choice. It was like $1.79 a six pack. Now, I'm shocked to see it on the "good domestic" beer lists in some bars!

When I lived in Arizonia while I was in the Army, it was Coors. Either than or Boone's Farm.

Then, the Army sent me to Germany in 1982. I've liked good beer ever since!

Anything that we could get, whenever we could. I remember the first time I got drunk my friend's sister worked at a bar, and she got us a 6 of Geobels (sp). His brother came home with 2 large buds, and we also had 2 small buds with dinner. While drinking all of that, we also nipped the old man's whiskey. Quite a bit for a 130 lb. 17 yo.

We also snuck a few Michelob Lights out to the barn.

In high school, it was almost exclusively Mad Dog 20/20. Mostly orange jubilee, but sometimes it was strawberry kiwi.

In college, I went from natty light at parties to OE Ice / Private Stock in my later years. We had a local bar called Hokie House that was usually a frat sh*thole, but would also have awesome happy hours every day where you could get a huge mug of whatever beer they had on tap for $2. I'd usually hit the guinness, newcastle or killians. Yeah, I thought it was pretty good at the time.

I started trying other stuff, like Sam Adams' various brews, and liked 'em even more (I then realized just how sweet Newcastle was). Then I started working in a fine wine/beer shop, and the rest was history.

If we're talking about high school, it was Bud, or Boone's Farm, or wine/hard liquor that we stole from my grandfather's house (or my parents I think they still have a bottle of gin that's probably about 20 proof).

If we're talking about LEGAL drinking, pre-homebrew I would usually get a sixer of Molson (Golden or Canadian), maybe Labatts. At parties, it'd be Heinekin or Sammy. I'd occassionally seek out a sixer of Sapporo or some other Asian lager. Occassional Guiness.

His brother came home with 2 large buds, and we also had 2 small buds with dinner. While drinking all of that, we also nipped the old man's whiskey. Quite a bit for a 130 lb. 17 yo.

We also snuck a few Michelob Lights out to the barn.

My Uncle Sam sent me to Germany the first time in '75.

At Bragg, we used to eat a couple buckets of chicken along with a couple bottles of the Boone's Farm too.

In high school, it was almost exclusively Mad Dog 20/20. Mostly orange jubilee, but sometimes it was strawberry kiwi.

In college, I went from natty light at parties to OE Ice / Private Stock in my later years. We had a local bar called Hokie House that was usually a frat sh*thole, but would also have awesome happy hours every day where you could get a huge mug of whatever beer they had on tap for $2. I'd usually hit the guinness, newcastle or killians. Yeah, I thought it was pretty good at the time.

I started trying other stuff, like Sam Adams' various brews, and liked 'em even more (I then realized just how sweet Newcastle was). Then I started working in a fine wine/beer shop, and the rest was history.

If we're talking about high school, it was Bud, or Boone's Farm, or wine/hard liquor that we stole from my grandfather's house (or my parents I think they still have a bottle of gin that's probably about 20 proof).

If we're talking about LEGAL drinking, pre-homebrew I would usually get a sixer of Molson (Golden or Canadian), maybe Labatts. At parties, it'd be Heinekin or Sammy. I'd occassionally seek out a sixer of Sapporo or some other Asian lager. Occassional Guiness.


Beers You Used To Drink

There are certain beers that I just never liked at all but there are a handful of beers that I used to drink that I can't believe I ever liked in the first place.

I can't tell you how much Colt 45 I drank in college but I just don't like it anymore. Many moons ago I also used to drink JW Dundee's Honey Brown, and way back in high school we used to drink and Michelob , Molson Golden, Moosehead, Hamm's, Reingold (what didn't you drink in high school?) but don't think I've had any of those in ten years or more.

What beer did you drink a lot of at one time and now just can't believe you ever liked?

Canadian, Keith's (will still take it on draught if there's nothing else), used to buy a lot of Stella, Sleeman's . . .

Nothing all that shameful, actually.

Yeah, even when I was drinking a lot of Canadian (because it's what my older brothers bought) I'd aspire to beer-snobbery, and I'd use my fake ID to get into beer bars with my friends and drink Hobgoblin and Hoegaarden and ooh and aah at the beers that tasted like something.

(by the time I was of age I had pretty good taste.)

Denny's Evil Concoctions

Grande Megalomaniac

Wildcat strong for camping. 6.5% and cheap. Actually tasted better than canadian IMO.

Coors light cause my firends did. Then I started drinking water and got a better buzz.

Guiness, now I raely drink it cause ut's not stouty enough for me.

Looking at that list it's no wonder I brew!!

When I was a kid, Rolling Rock was the el cheapo crap beer choice. It was like $1.79 a six pack. Now, I'm shocked to see it on the "good domestic" beer lists in some bars!

When I lived in Arizonia while I was in the Army, it was Coors. Either than or Boone's Farm.

Then, the Army sent me to Germany in 1982. I've liked good beer ever since!
