Yes they did! I can still remember my Dad saying “Schlitz gives you the …” :) My Grandpa wasn’t a beer drinker by any means but there were two Schlitz pop top cans in the garage refrigerator well into the mid 80’s. I asked him why he kept them. “In case any of the boys from the plant stop by to visit and need a beer” good memories.

Pretty sure Stroh’s had taken over the plant when I was a kid. I remember they built the youth soccer fields on their land and sponsored the program.

Being a teenager in the late 60's, it was the Ultimate to land a 6 pack of Schlitz and a bottle of Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill wine. ;)

Wasn't that the Beer that made Budweiser Famous :?: :banghead: :drunk: :laughing7:

That Pic of the Sweetie Pie grillin Burger Patties with Barney under her arm reminds me so much of my now Young Lady, Harlee. :rose:
Back then I had watched so many Barney the Dino reruns I could hear the Theme Song in my sleep - - the things that Pawpaws do for the G-Babies :cheers:

BTW, that area looks exactly like the woods property behind our old house where she and I spent hours picking muscadines, calling morning doves and chunkin rocks at anything that moved. :laughing7: :laughing7: :laughing7: :laughing7:

A lot of our Grandparents made Jelly out of Muscadine and Mathew because they didn’t have the money to buy fruit to can; they used what the Good Lord had put there for them. I prefer Mayhaw but they’ve cut so much of the bottom land there aren’t many wild ones left. Lots of folks have domesticated them
