Drain Pours

If you try enough different malt beverages, sooner or later you will get one that after one sip you'd rather drink water out of a swamp than finish that beer.  This is known as a "drain pour".  I went into the way back machine and found this picture of me with what was probably my first drain pour. 



If you buy Ballantine Ale today (which is produced by Miller under contract with Pabst) you get a fairly decent drinkable brew.  That couldn't be said for the Ballantine Ale of the late 70s!  This photo was taken in my parent's basement around January 1978.
