Would it be odd of PittGirl …

… to purchase ALL the Rolling Rock she can find prior to the weekend and stash it in her house and hopefully make it last for say … a lifetime?

Then when I have company over or something, I can make a determination if that person is “33-worthy” … a la Elaine and “Sponge-worthy.”

Hmmm.  Must go ponder on that.  How long does bottled beer last in storage before it tastes like shit?  Because if it is going to taste like shit, I might as well just buy the shit they’ll be bottling in Jersey.  Ugh.

    Only a hardcore Latrobean (Laytrobean) would stock up on 33. Ahhh… the fond memories of sitting on my grandmother’s porch in 1st ward while the trucks would haul the brewed grains from the brewery out of town… that malty odor in the air…

    Yep. Here’s your last chance to support the hometown before we all switch to Vitamin I!

    I will not comment on the drinkworthiness of Rolling Rock, aged or not. Nevertheless, my sources tell me that Anheuser-Busch will no long brew Rolling Rock with Mountain Spring Water. Instead, the mysterious “33” will now refer to the number of times they have to filter the Hudson River water before they can use it to brew beer. So I can’t imagine that it’s gonna be any good. Scott’s Spot recommends that you stock up.

    If you really want to stock up on piss I’m sure the Shaler Water Authority on 28 will be more than happy to help you out.

    Any beer that INTENTIONALLY allows a bacteria growth in their primary fermeters to give it that ‘distinct’ taste I’d rather avoid.

    You can only keep beer about 6 months… a year tops but that is really pushing it. So if you do stock up on a lot of RR then at least you can be good and drunk for about 6 months before the RR starts tasting worse…

    If you really want to keep the skunk monster away from your Rolling Rock, make sure to keep away from any light and cool if possible. And stop making fun of the Promised Land (I mean, Jersey). I’m proud to come from a state where there are areas of highway with rocks painted green to simulate grass – until they flip over onto the unpainted side.

    I am waiting for someone to scale the gigantic billboard at Rt. 30/Rt. 119 in Greensburg and start peeling off the RR ad in sheets to take home and paper their basement with!
