Lindsey says I’m “lobbying for Iron City to become the next hip beer.”
It’s true. Iron City is a no-frills lager brewed in Pittsburgh since 1861 by a company that survived bankruptcy a few years ago. If you’re looking for a bland beer with a proud industrial history, look no further (and for $3 or less in the bar around the corner, the history is a bonus).
Lindsey also points to a post at A Continous Lean where Miller High Life gets much-deserved support, and I can’t argue with it. Here’s why:
The YouTube user graffiti62 has done the world a great service by posting a few dozen of these old ads. Do yourself a favor one night: buy a six-pack of the Champagne of Beers and watch them all.
But also, please start asking for Iron City at your local dive.
