Wait a minute - they still brew Anchor!
:mad:

 

Not sure if you're serious. Can't find it there? It used to be one of the top micro brews back when there weren't as many (with wide distribution). Not sure how popular it is outside of here now. I just thought it was overpriced back then. Now it's one of my faves.

There were several beers in NY state where I grew up that were from smaller breweries - Utica Club, Piels, Rhinegold, Ballantine come to mind immediately. The names are still out there but they've all been bought by Miller etc. and are not the same.
:cry:

 

Isn't Utica Club owned by the FX Matt Brewery?

What I'm saying is - the labels still are out there, but they're traded around like baseball cards...and most wound up consolidated and lose whatever individuality they had. I remember when Strohs was actually pretty good.
