    Iowa State Beer

    So I came across something I have not seen before today. It was a Beer can. It was called Iowa state Beer and had a buff looking cy on one side, and Iowa state Beer on the other. Anyone ever seen one before? I don't have pictures now but I will post some tomorrow

    Re: Iowa State Beer

    I have one of these beer cans. I was passed down from my dad.

    I think we need to petition Olde Main to produce a batch for the 2008 tailgating season.

    Key points to success:

    1) Refreshing and chuggable for maximum tailgating enjoyment.
    2) Old-skool can with pull tab opening system. (make sure to throw used pull tabs in to sand at beach)
    3) Maintain color-scheme with Cy sporting new I-State logo.

    You'll never get it approved with the licensing department at Iowa State.

    Re: Iowa State Beer

    My uncle, a hawk fan, has all these cans. He has the hawkeye cans and cyclone cans. At the bottom, they say something like "not endorsed by Iowa State University". Today, they would get sued for producing beer that had ISU or Iowa on the can. They were produced by Dubuque Star Brewery. If you are ever in Dubuque, the old brewery down by the river is now probably the best restaurant in town. They also have a nice bar there. On the lower level, they have a mini museum and you can see the ISU and Iowa cans on display.

    Re: Iowa State Beer

    My uncle's can still are unopened and the beer hasn't been drained. Each holiday party he hosts, someone starts talking about drinking one on a dare. I suspect it would cause instant vomiting.

    I've drank some old beer before but yes, that would beat all!
