The weekend has begun!
Schuller’s Tavern in Golden Valley MN as it appeared in 1957 sporting a @grainbeltbeer and Schmidt beer sign out front.
@surlybrewing just announced their 2019 lineup of beers.
A collage of very Minnesotan @grainbeltbeer beer ads from the early 1970s featuring Minnesota related things...yeah...sure. . . #minnesota #greengiant #fondue #beer #mnbeer #craftbeer #minnstagram #minnstagramers #minnesotabeer #minnesotacraftbeer
Cats are crazy for @schellsbeer Landbier.
Are you ready for some Foosball? . Bubba Smith and Dick Butkus (haha) in a 1982 Miller Lite Beer ad. ...Butkus
Who has all of the scenic cans from Schmidt and Heileman? After Schmidt changed hands the quality of the cans art dropped a couple notches as you can see here.
I spotted this Hamm’s sign over a year ago and I thought I deleted it by accident. Also I kinda forgot where I saw this sign haha. I’m thinking it was in Lake City MN? Does this place look familiar to anyone?
A pretty rare find sent in from Adam - @biglakehomebrewer A @grainbeltbeer packaged in a Nesbitt’s bottle. Not sure on year or circumstance but pretty cool.
Happy Repeal of Prohibition Day! #repealday
A classic Schlitz sign still hangs in front of the Twin Point Tavern at 11199 Stillwater Blvd North in Lake Elmo, Minnesota.
Congrats to all the winners of this year‘s awards. I was actually nominated a few years back but lost out to the better blog. Since then, blogs have been taken off the list of things to vote for. 🤨 . P.S. I do review breweries and beers! I’m actually going on 9 years now of doing this project but ironically I have never been invited to a taproom opening once....really. I’ve broken stories about places that will open but yet my invite always gets lost in the mail....contact me people, free promotions await! @growlermag
A later North Star beer can that was brewed in Cold Spring MN, getting a little snow from the north on it.
Wife said only one beer decoration ...
The weekend is upon us ....
Sent in from Tim Nelsen out of his personal collection. . If you have any Hamm’s or other beer memorabilia you would like to be featured here, feel free to send it in!
