I thought Yuengling was Philly. Penn Pilsner was local and oldschool. I always liked Straub too (from St. Marys and Honestly Natural). People in the Burgh hated Rolling Rock as I recall even though it used to be made right up the road in Latrobe, where the Stillers had summer camp (St. Vincents?).
The state stores were strange, but I worked in a bar and had buddies that worked in bars, so no issues getting beer! And Brewskis had Iron and IC (for the ladies!) on tap for like $0.95 for a 22 oz beer. Plus a lot of my buds belonged to the Eagles (Iggles) Club up in Sharpsburg and I think the beer was like $0.50 Iron on tap! Now I can't get Miller Lite on tap for under $4.50 a pint!
