It's really sad that we have to associate the legend of Ballantine with Pabst :'(

I drank quite a bit of PBR as a youngster, and found it to be my favorite variety of 'bland American mega-swill'.  Someone should really think about getting trademark protection for that phrase  ;)

Pabst owns Schlitz now too (via the Stroh buy-out).

I used to drink Schlitz dark in my early days, but then I found out that Schlitz is the German word for skunk piss.

I had to see what Schlitz translated to, and it is "slot".

Stroh translates to "straw", BTW.

So you don't know any Germans?   Schmidt is the German equivalent of Smith.  Someone who makes something, usually in metal working.  You know what a blacksmith is, I am sure.

In German, knife is messer and smith is schmidt.  So in German someone who makes knives and swords was a Messerschmidt.  One of the big centers of armour and sword making in midieval times in Germany was Augsberg.  Augsberg was bombed to rubble at the end of WWII because the was a local firm that made fighter planes named after the founder, Willie Messerschmidt.

Yeah, from what I've been told Schmidlin is equivalent, just sort of local to Basel, Switzerland.  When I flew into Basel a dozen years ago or so, the customs agent looked at my passport said "Schmidlin, eh?" and proceeded to talk to me in a string of Schweizerdeutsch I couldn't really understand with my high school Hochdeutsch.  My Grandfather was born in/near Basel.

Yep, and smith for blacksmith (I fancy myself a blacksmith) comes from the word smite meaning to strike. Like the smith does with his hammer. Blacksmith is for iron as it was considered black. Then there are (were) copper-smiths, tinsmiths, silversmiths,  goldsmiths, and even more lately in history whitesmiths  for aluminum and stainless. The more malleable alloys and grades of aluminum can be forged cold, although not a lot of people are doing it.  

And tom, Ill bet your name comes somehow from the German word for smelt. Ill bet your ancestors worked foundries. 

I love this stuff, how names come from trades, Baker, Carpenter, Brewer, which brings us back to the subject.  ::)

The only beer I've had that truly tasted like skunk urine was sun-struck Heineken (nice green bottles, a-holes).  I've not had a PBR in about 5 yr., but when I did I liked it a lot better than most mass-produced American lagers.   Bud, in particular, is a lot like making love in a canoe (f****ing close to water).

One of the strangest is 'Fletcher'.  This is the guy who glues the feathers onto arrows (not a big job market currently).

To get back on the Pabst Ballantines subject, the name Cooper would apply, as they had some 800 barrel wooden tanks to take care of back in the day.
