My friends at Punch Apparel love their cheap beer (any yellow fizz water in a can), but do they love it this much?
I’ll protect the innocent, or guilty in this case, but the photo you see was taken in Mexico Beach, FL, c. ’91. The original polaroid shows 315 (316 with the one in hand) empty cans of the “Beast Azul”. That’s more than 13 cases (if your high school math is failing you).
I recall we quite literally cleared the shelves of “Beast Azul” in Mexico Beach.
I also recall being at the local beach bar where some local with a guitar and mike was playing beach favorites. A crowd of rowdy friends at the bar was yelling “Freebird” and “Jimmy” … as I recall the request was for Jimmy Hendricks, yet for some reason he kept playing Jimmy Buffet. Why? I may never know.
