Once-Popular Beer Brands That No Longer Exist

Rhetty for History explores the long-forgotten beers alongside the brands that are ripe for nostalgia.

In a world where it feels like beers have never been more easily accessible, the idea that some are no longer available does not compute to us.

After all, we have spent a decent amount of time in the massive beer and wine emporiums that can be found all over this great country. It is tough to square the idea that beers are actually vanishing from store shelves.

That is where the expertise of the one and only Rhetty for History is about to come in handy. They are taking a closer look at the beer brands that have since been discontinued and providing us with a history lesson that we never could have expected.

While some of these brands are not available currently, they are still remembered in the present day. Beer has that type of effect. There’s something about it that triggers all of our nostalgia.

There are beer brands that have not been in existence since our youth but we can still remember exactly how they tasted. Booze is funny in that way. That’s what makes this video such an awesome watch. You are sure to come across a beer brand that you remember very fondly. Or maybe you remember it for different reasons! Either way, this is an absolute must-see.

“At one point or another we have all felt the pain of losing a favorite food or drink that used to be sold. ..The beer market is no different. Many have come and gone over the years, while others have went through changes and just aren’t the same. …but the good news is there are a ton of choices compared to what there used to be,” the description reads.

This is very true. If you have been shopping for beer recently, you know that it can be hard to narrow down your choices. It seems like there are more beers available than ever before and this is probably true. That does not mean that we can’t spend time thinking about our old friends that are no longer on tap.

If you are anything like us, this video is going to jar some serious memories loose. We know that we spent a lot of time texting friends and loved ones about the beers that we can no longer get our hands on.
