    Dubuque Star...

    ...do they still make it? If they do, what does a case cost these days? I used to get a case of longnecks at The Keg Shop on Lincoln Way for $5.99!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Thanks for the info...I laughed at the statement that their beers "were technically superior products"! Sure didn't taste that way but you couldn't beat the price on a tight college kid budget!

    Remember the movie they made about the Dubuque "Star" brewery, back in the 1980s? It sucked, too!

    Re: Dubuque Star...

    how about the foecking beer that made in dubuque a few years back. it started over a little deal about a couple of dubuquers asking each other how about a f**ki*g beer,so they manufactured a beer called and named
    the "FOECKING BEER". i used to have a bottle that i had as a collector's item and as a conversational piece,but i lost in in one of my travels and moves. one of the iowa state alums up near forest city iowa bought and still has several cases of it.i think it was produced in one of the years in the 1980's.just a little dubuque and iowa tradition.

    Re: Dubuque Star...

    Anyone remember "Brewskey". It came out one year for Veisha (1994, I think), and sold for 5.99 a case. You could drink that stuff all night long. Then after Veisha it was gone and never seen again.
