Another reddit find:

....and is that an unusual top for Gene to be wearing?

I thought Stan was so cultured with his refined sensibilities and ... and so forth. So, why is he holding up a Budweiser? He'll be in a Foster's commercial, next. An otherwise interesting pic!

Looks like the snap-on horns made a reappearance at the San Diego 77 photo shoot...

that photo is very real. asbury park june 1974. there's video evidence to back it up. you've seen it in the film that was made when the kiss army was helping j.r. smalling raise funds for his cancer treatments before he sadly passed.

I know some on here will disagree of course, but American beer is literally cat's piss.

Especially Bud.

Me either. As far as the classic big name American beers go, I’ve always preferred Coors Banquet.

Budweiser does have a cool label. Especially the big can.
