Picture of Bad Frog Beer

Greg Gerke reports seeing bad Frog Beer, in a 16 oz. can. These were found in Jacksonville, Florida. There is a possibility that they are being pulled from the shelves because of the "possibly obscene" gesture the frog makes. Anyone else have more info on this can ?

Cliff Treend reports seeing Coors Beer (historic label series) by the Coors Brewing Co. He saw them at Walgreens in Mountain View, CA in 12 oz. cans. Pictured here are 2 of the 6-can set of original coors labels from the 1800's and early 1900's. Each label is different, with a paragraph of notes on the history of the label. These are also flat tops. Cliff brought this to my attention that we had not covered these yet. As you know, they were available all over the U.S.

Scott & Laura Spencer report seeing Coors Beer (Fiesta Series) by the Coors Brewing Co. We saw them at Smith's Supermarket in Las Cruces, NM on March 29th, in 12 oz. cans. Pictured here are the 3 cans of what I believe is a 3 can set. They were packaged in 12 packs only, with a reference on the 12 pack to the "Nuevas Latas Festivas". Each can has a small paragraph on the side panel. Pictured, from left to right, is "Tejano", "Norteno", and "Mariachi". In the first 12 pack we bought, the breakdown was 2, 1, and 9. We have them for trade, but unless the mix is different, we may never get very many complete sets.
