I tried a 1960s formula Schlitz recently.  Apparently they've gone back to that recipe.  It was amazingly good.

Speaking of Schlitz...

lately I've had a hankering to brew a malt liquor... I'm from Indiana, so maybe with some local corn?

Maybe this deserves another post... has anyone else attempted this?

Very cool.  I haven't seen the 1960s formula but I'll give it a try when I do.  Many of the bars on their list are great bars, particularly the Long Room and Sheffields.

By the way, 14/15 and missed the Budweiser answer.  Seemed like it was too obvious...

My friends and I used to split a case of Schlitz longnecks (deposit kine) back in the early 70s (we were in high school).  I remember it as tasting pretty damn good.  I have always chalked it up to my relative inexperience as a beer drinker at the time.  Now I see I was probably drinking the old recipe.  We used to get Schlitz Dark on tap too.  That was pretty tasty as I recall.

I hope some of the old recipe finds its way here to Hawaii.  It would be interesting to see if it tastes like I remember it.

I remember my dad giving me sips of his Ballentine IPA when I was a kid, and liking it a lot.  That was in the late 50s/early 60s.

14/15 but I got the Canadian one.  Don't even remember what I missed but it was one of the German ones.

14/15.  Can't believe I missed Becks ... that's my whipping boy ... er beer.  :P
Too bad they were all mass produced beers.  Something craft brewy from around the world would be cool.

One of my favorite surfin' and fishin' spots back in the day.
There are no snook here in Hawaii. (one of the things I really miss about Florida)
We catch pelagics from the shore though.  The bottom is so steep, you go out 100 yards and you are in 100 fathoms.
It's not uncommon to see humpbacks swimming a few hundred feet offshore here in the winter.

.

we tended to catch a lot of channel cats.  my parents had a house on one of the canals just north of the inlet.  caught fair share of sea trout there. 
just north of the bridge there was an old coast guard spotting tower that was turned in to a dive bar.  spray pain on the floors and walls. it is fancier now

I was surfing on the south side of Sebastian inlet at what we called the "monster hole" one time.  We called it that because when the swells were right the waves got big there (by Florida standards).  I was sitting outside waiting for the next set to come in when a manatee surfaced about ten feet away and let out a big breath of air.  Scared the s*** out of me!  Of course manatees are harmless, but that one looked like a SSBN coming up next to me like that.  Closest I've ever been to a manatee.

I'm in the 14/15 crowd.  I blew it on the black and tan question.  How do I get Leblatt's and not get the dark half of a black and tan right?

14/15 can't believe i missed the Labaats. Go figure they sponser the Pond hockey here. Sorry Labaats. I feel BPlue.

Where is the recipe for schlitz?

I know Augie Pabst III so maybe a original Pabst Clone someday!

15/15. I'm surprised at how many people missed Labaats. It said it joined inBev in the mid 90's. If it was Molson, explain MolsonCoors.
