I've been on
Rusty Cans site before, but it was interesting viewing it again.
I have a small beer can collection, but it's packed away in several places at this time (what else? I guess I collect a little of everything).

straub is good, my dad drinks it......but 36 bucks for a 1/4 barrel of lager is hard to beat

I've gotten Penn Brewery for the last couple cases. It's OK. Nice flavor and all that. But last night (new year's eve) I was trying to light a fire with snowy kindling and waiting for the fireworks to show up and was really wishing I had some Lager instead.

Last time I took the brewery tour, they said they opened up a brewery in Florida to keep up with demand. if I recall, about 60% of the Lager sold in PA is canned in FL.

When I tore down our old garage I found some odd shape beer cans, called "Old Shay", from Fort Pitt brewing company,probably from the 1930's.

I never saw the cone top been cans until today, when I saw them on Rusty Cans.

The only time I ever saw cone top cans with caps that you needed a church key to remove was Christy's Dry Gas (supplied in plastic bottles now).

it tastes so much better on tap.......i have friends in fl and when i visited last yr i had some bottled lager.....it was skunked......yuengling beer needs to be consumed fresh.......the premium is good on tap also, it went down so smooth that we drank mass quanities of it in a short period of time

Has anyone done the brewary tour lately? When I went years ago, after the tour they gave you bottle caps and each was good for a small cup of beer or soda. Do they still do that?

I went a couple years back. maybe 2.
The cave is open now. It's where they used to keep the beer cool. All hand dug tunnels under the building and into the mountain.
The bar is open at the end of the tour. If you're of age you can have 3 drinks (about 6 oz each) off the freshest taps possible.
I got to keep a wooden bung plug because they don't use them any more.
