Oh, dear Gawd, Hop'n Gator...

I thought that was finally purged from my mind, but no, now it's back. Waking up one morning and stumbling into the living room saying, "OK, if someone would just give me my car keys, I could go look for my pants."

Horrible, horrible stuff.

yeah, boo, that was some rank malt likker. nuthin like high gravity citrus flavored beer.

Wiki says Gatorade sued for copyright infringement, resulting in da Gator's demise.

I found this Sports Illustrated article from 9-22-69. Seems the same guy who invented Gatorade also developed Hop'n Gator. Check out the outright false claims:
NEW BREW
Dr. Robert Cade, the not-so-mad scientist who gave the world Gatorade (SI, July 1, 1968), may have done it again. This week in Tampa he introduced Hop'n Gator, which is not a new battery-operated toy but an elixir brewed by the Pittsburgh Brewing Company. Indeed. Hop'n Gator looks like beeróbut it doesn't taste like beer. It has this sort of champagne-type flavor and, like Gatorade, extra added attractions. Hop'n Gator is less filling than beer, can be served over the rocks, can not be detected on the breath and, reputedly, produces no hangover. So what has all this to do with sport? Aha! According to Wilton R. Miller, Dr. Cade's genial attorney, "When you drink this stuff you don't get alcohol fatigue. You can drink Hop'n Gator and continue to play tennis or golf without physical impairment. Of course, your judgment may be a little off."

Not beer but Boones Farm apple wine, Strawberry Ripple or like Fred Sanford called it Stripple, Nature Boy $1.05 fifth plus a nickle pack of kool-aid gave you any flavor you wanted.
Mention Strohs, and you could go to the Fifth Quarter and that pizza shop nearby, all in Kent that sold a quart of 3.2% Strohs with the red cap, for $.55.Only had to be 18 to drink 3.2 beer.
Many many many hangovers from that 3.2 beer, and that cheap wine, from the past time grocery store, on Marcy and Stanton, had to be brave to drive over there to get the wine.

"Wilton R. Miller, Dr. Cade's genial attorney"

I read that as genital attorney and thought, "Good Lord, what kind of trouble does that man get himself into?"

Ahh... red cap, blue cap...
We bought a couple of cases of 3.2 Bud for this party, back in '71 and the store accidentally gave us a case of blue caps too. It was party time indeed.

There was a club can't remember its name, and they had a band that played rock, and the drummers name was Igorsky Flag, of course I remember him as Allen Rex, grew up with him, and they would play a long rendition of Whipping Post,every saturday night at 12:00 and had a light show and everyone in the crowd would rock back and forth to the beat of Tied to a Whipping Post..Oh Lord I feel like dyin..Allman Brothers Band, I know why Greg wrote that song cause Greg was Tied to that old hag whippin post Cher..........
Also, The Fifth Quarter was owned by none other than Joe Marsh, yea the same Joe Marsh thats a Millionaire and tried to seal a 200 milion dollar deal with LeBron as his agent for the Nike contract.....gave him and his mom $50k no note no siggy no nothing, Lebron was a junior at St. V hung out at Marsh's Portage Lakes Pad, of course old Eddie the elder gentleman, real estate fraud set it up with Marsh...the rest is history. After the Fifth Quarter, Marsh bought what used to be the Carousel, ran it as a night club selling it to the original owner of the Carousel in Portage county. Marsh bought the salvage rights to the Titanic, got in a huge international battle with a german investor they tried to dump Marsh and sell the right to other European investors, Marsh caught the germans red handed much intrigue, Marsh did bring up some of the artifacts, from the Titanic, and sold them in New York, Miami and L.A. Woodshole and other international "Hoidy Toiys" got involved and stopped the sacking of the Titanic...Go online to see the lawsuits and Marshs' name...not bad for a young nobody from New Philly, he married a young chicken, at Paradise Island Bahama's and has a young kid 2 maybe , and he's in his mid 60's...What tangled webs we weave..........
