That is an old classic. It is interesting to look at the changes in drinking aptterns in the US over the last 50 years.
Rye whiskey was the #1 liquor, now you can hardly find it.
Tequila is the #1 liquor now.
Coors used to be a regional beer that was special when someone brought it home on a trip (even into the 70s). Kinda like Ying Ling or Bell's, etc.
No real market for any ales, just american lagers. Now mil. is the 7th city in terms of beer production
Still mostly american lagers and crappy flavored malt liquor drinks. Its hilarious that I can be called out for drinking malt liquor cause its cheap and im broke. but once you raise the rent to $7 a sixer and get sorostitutes to drink it its acceptable. Friggin downfall of american drinking right there. On a related note try http://www.moderndrunkardmagazine.com/
