Holy Toledo! What next? The return of the Brownies to Saint Louis?

Too young to have had it, but my dad (a passionate and extensive consumer of Midwest suds in the '40s, '50s, and '60s) said the only thing good about Griesedieck was that it wasn't water. When in the same league with Falstaff ($1.99/24 longnecks when I was in college) and Stag (only beer I've ever seen my grandfather turn down), one hopes they have a better recipe.

Re: Nastysnatch potato chips. Salt and vinegar are a bad, bad choice, my friend. A bad choice.

Is it really pronounced "greasy dick"?
 
2005-08-16 10:50:27 AM  
My dad always said, "greasy-deck".

But, hey, that was 40 years ago.
 
2005-08-16 11:54:08 AM  
well, assuming for a moment that we can pronounce it greasy-dyke....it becomes a great headline. Great job Submitter

Does all this mean that a sardine is still a fish that smells like a finger ??

Wow. I didn't think "covered in glass and sharks" could be replaced.

/Maybe

Lemp was around for a while and available at Dierbergs - not sure if it still is but it was actually not bad. It was supposed to have been made from the original recipe.

well nowadays maybe he will be more comfortable coming out and admitting to wrapping his lips around a "greasy-dick".

Eat_At_Milliways: Salt and vinegar are a bad, bad choice, my friend. A bad choice.

I don't know the "Seafood Delight" or "Hot, Hot, Burning BBQ" ones are pretty bad too.

---> An ice cold greasy dick.

Nicely done, submitter, that made me laugh.
 
2005-08-16 12:05:06 PM  
Now THAT'S a headline. Kudos.

It is pronounced "greasy dick." I work with a guy named Griesedieck, and that's how he pronounces his own name. If it were me, I'd choose an alternate pronunciation.
 
2005-08-16 12:07:10 PM  
GREEZ-a-deck last I heard it.

It's "oss-wee-pay".

First beer I ever had was a Fallstaff, back about 1960. It was known as "foul stuff", but I thought it was pretty good. Wish I could get one today just to relive the memory.
 
2005-08-16 12:08:57 PM  
Now now, saturn and wilson. There is plenty of greasy dick to go around.

That's a memory best left suppressed.

Still, not as bad as "Red, White, and Blue", the only "beer" I've never been able to drink.

2005-08-16 12:22:53 PM  
However it's pronounced, I think I'll pass...

I gotta greasy-deek right here for ya.

Had to be done.

Tyee: Had to be done.

No. It didn't.
Made me giggle though :)
 
2005-08-16 12:29:27 PM  
nbrfwhoooo

That was "showered with glass and sharks".

Don't mess with a classic.

I shall give this a try! Any german-style beer is worth tasting!

Hamms all the way baby. I think I paid $3.50 buck for an 18 pack of cans back in HS. Also Schmidts which is a little bit better than Hamms. Of course that's like saying getting AIDS is a little bit better than getting beubonic(sp) plague. Used to call it Schmights. Crap was so weak you schmight get drunk and you schmight not. Stupid I know but so were we.

Oh and I'll take my Guinness any day!

Your profile says your a guy. Guys do not giggle. We chuckle or maybe even guffaw but we never giggle.

thanks sumbitter, that headline read just the way I wanted it to.

That depends on what we're smoking.

Ah yes, names. Some people just have unfortunate names. I just had a class with some people who just got out of the military, and boy...

Like one whose name stripe read "PUSSY", in the Marines.

"Good morning, Corporal Pussy!"
"Dammit, it's pronounced "PUSS-AY!"
"You must have had a hell of a time in boot."
 
2005-08-16 01:05:19 PM  
Oh and there's nothing that spells "booby-trapped name" like a drill sarge named "Fagot"...

From there it drifted into politics, starting with the current United States Vice President and his name. By birth, Richard. My father's name is also Richard, and that's what he goes by. The topic of the conversation: at what point does a man who was named Richard, start saying to all who meet him, "Yeah, just call me Dick". "My name is Dick." "Here's my business card, remember, you want Dick."

On the right side of old Sportsman's Park, Grand Avenue and Dodier Street in north St. Louis, was a big, red Griesedieck Brothers Beer sign.

Nothing quite like a big red Griesedieck.
