Re: Odd Carling Breweries LTD Tank Car


Coors was not available on the East Coast until the 80's so beyond the time frame of this list.   It gained recognition in the East when it became known that is was Henry Kissenger's beer of choice.  Prior to that it was  Western regional beer and much of it was 3.2 beer not full strength.

Carling had multiple breweries and probably tried shipping beer between breweries.  Coors shipped beer in insulated tank cars, from Colorado to the East coast, where it was bottled.  The beer only dropped a couple of degrees on the trip.  I have pics of some of the tank cars.  They had no advertising on them.
