Fans of "local beer" took a hit when Rolling Rock moved to New Jersey. But screw Rolling Rock. Drink Iron City. Or my favorite, Straub. (What can I say? I'm a just a hillbilly.)
But here's some big news: Straub has just released a new flavor: Peter Straub Special Dark. I would say to go buy a case, but you can't. It's only available in kegs. Because their bottling machines are already going at full tilt delivering the old-school Straub. Which I guess means they are doing OK. Which is excellent.
So go to a bar and order one. Or have a kegger at your house.
In the meantime, check out this promotion for the product. Yeah, that's right. They had a concert. Featuring George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Which is about as big as it gets up in my old neck of the woods.
