    All American Beer tailgate for NU

    We've decided to have an All American Beer Tailgate for the Nebraska game and I need some help from my fellow CF'ers. So far we've decided on:
    Schlitz
    PBR
    Hamms/Hamms golden lager
    Grain Belt Premium/light

    This issue is, we would prefer tall boys of Schlitz but cannot find them anywhere. I know that they make them but I cannot find them. I'm looking for suggestions of other old school beers and if anyone knows where I can find unique 12 or 24oz tall boys.

    I would also like to find the 8pack of 7oz Miller Highlife bottles too.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Re: All American Beer tailgate for NU

    Any idea where I can actually purchase any of these beers in the Ames/Des Moines area?

    I can confirm personally that Cyclone Liquors has all but Hamm's.

    They may have it, I just don't look for it. The others are there for sure.

    It's also the only place I've found that has GBP in cans.

    Interesting. I hate the fact that I can never find Primo in cans.

    Hold your tongue! GBP is far from junk.

    It's one of the highest rated adjunct lagers on BeerAdvocate.

    I didn't say it was all junk. I had my first GBP on RAGBRAI this year and lets just say it was a great night.

    I went to Cyclone Liquor last night and didn't see any of these... hmm. I'll have to check again...

    I've got a relative in MN who is coming down for the game and he has for the tailgate:
