Are we supposed to guess this, or are you being ironic because of Puerto Rico being so concerned about beer can litter?

Looks like Peroni.

A little of both I guess... I just found it odd that a beer made here in da mitt was calling out PR for littering. Here's another:

https://www.reddit.com/r/mildlyinterest ... to_litter/

Though it was the 1st I'd seen it, googling 'puerto rico don't litter beer' will get you some interesting stories (and pics) behind why it's there, on product from all over the world.

Maybe we ought to start a thread for unusual or ironic labels or signs. I'll do that now.

In the meantime, here's the source of the 1st one...

This year's fresh batch seems especially good.

I'm going to have to give that a try. I'm a big fan of Founders Solid Gold.

I wasn't a fan initially - in fact, I was actually wondering who would take the rest of the 1st 6-pack off my hands after downing the 1st bottle. It's classified as an APA, seasonal (late summer). Nothing like SG. Rather pungent, hoppy - perhaps a tad bitter at first sip.

From what I've read (and observed when sharing), people seem to either love it, or hate it.

Glad I gave it a 2nd chance. If summer has to come to an end, this signal of it is one of the few I welcome...

Yes, indeedee...

Gifted to me by a visiting prof from UMass... (she apologized she had no Heady Topper in the SUV; this was one of the consolation prizes. I'll post the other when I pop it.)

They're pretty proud of their New England IPA's, but I'd rather have a V8 than B8...
