\“I thought it was very tasty. I was surprised. I thought it would be full of crap, but it was good,” she said./ Lesson learned. So everybody has been drinking their Coors too soon, which just goes to prove the old saw, "If it's yellow, let it mellow".

Of course it was OK. Then as now, it's pretty much nothing but that "pure Rocky Mountain spring water" from the old ads.

I do have an old can from the early '70s myself. Not full; it's broken and a bit rusty, because it's a rarity. It's made of steel. Steel Coors can are pretty rare. They went to aluminum right after beginning distribution in Texas.

And yes, people did bootleg it to points east, "Smokey and the Bandit"-style. For a long time, DFW was the furthest east and south you could get it. I knew people who ran it to Houston.

Up next, we'll have the special story, special indeed, we've been telling you about which has been in the works for some time now. I know you are out there eagerly awaiting the upcoming expected enthusiastic celebration. The paint on the Handicapped railing at City hall has fully dried and we're there live to bring the celebration to you. Also, Heather will be here with the weather which is the same as it was yesterday. Heather I love that skirt.

Like many Colorado natives, we have referred to Coors as "Downstream beer" or "Panther piss" and were more than happy to see it shipped to Texas.

We commend this widow lady for actually saving and then consuming a 50 Y/O can of the stuff, and wish her a speedy recovery.

I remember sitting next to one of my Georgia aunts during her 50th wedding anniversary party. I asked her if she was having a good time and she said it had just occurred to her that she would have gotten less jail time for murder. She was my favorite and they celebrated their 60th anniversary ten years later.

I used to load up the coolers with Coors on backpacking trips to Colorado and Montana in the 70s. On par with Detroit's Bohemian style Stroh's.
