I was buying beer at Sams Clab last weekend to restock the garage beer fridge when I spied a case of Rolling Rock. I hadn't beer fridged any RRs this season and decided to get some this time around. So into the cart the box o' beers went. When I got home to load the fridge, I was surprised to see that what I had purchased was a box of 33 (of course) 7 oz. bottles rather than the 12 ouncers I'd expected. Oh well, no harm, no foul. Hmmmm...but something seemed strangely nostalgic about these green 7 oz bottles. And then it hit me...OH YEAH, Little Kings Cream Ale!
Wow, that took me back. It's been maybe 25 years or more since I've had a Little Kings.
There was a time I drank them a lot. They were kind of a favorite of younger folks when I was a younger folk in the late '70s.
The little 7-ouncers came in 8-packs. Somehow those little beers carried quite punch as I remember them.
Although I had not seen Little kings on sale for many years, recently I'm pretty sure I've seen them locally at Friar Tuck's. I'll have to check next time I'm in there.
I wonder if they taste the same. I remember them as being pretty good but that was with my 19 year-old palate. Time may changed things. Hell, it might not even be brewed the same way. I'm now wanting to find out.
Have a happy weekend!
