It's cheap, but not too bad if you're in the mood for something like that.

We like to drink cheapass brews on cycling trips. At a tavern stop on one lengthy ride on the Katy Trail (rail-trail across a lot of MO), my wife ordered a Stag. The bartender got halfway to the cooler before he stopped, turned around, and asked, "Did you say you wanted a Stag?" I'm guessing most of the Stag drinkers, at least at that particular trailside tavern, aren't ladies...

My friends that actually drink it (yes, there are 1 or 2) refer to Stag as Golden Delicious.

Freddie Friction, local St. Louis drummer and spoon player and owner of Frederick's Music Lounge, refers to Stag as a meal in a can - Steak Taters And Gravy. That's good enough for me.

In my opinion Stag Beer is pretty tasty. Corral Liqour in Granite City, Illinois has a sign on the building that says "Stag Beer, As sugar free as beer can be". I have a friend who is diabetic and his doctor told him if he had to drink alchol then drink Stag. I think I'll come up with a mild case of glaucoma and take a visit to his doctor.

Glad to know I wasn't dreaming. :)

I'm convinced the guy needs his own reality television show. If Ozzy Osburnt and Jessica Simpson can have one why can't Brian Henneman.

Thanks people! Seems like every town's got one. Here, our brewery was shut down years ago (and they didn't make beer, only a form of cola that contained a two cups of coffee amount of cofein per bottle) People 'round here drink alot of redspirit poured through a loafbread(?) to remove the poison, and it tastes like shit, and therefore lot of people aren't allowed to buy redspirit in the stores anymore, rest drinks regular moonshine, and me, I drink 10 bucks pints of Guiness, ah, I love that stuff. (Did I mention I'm unemployed :D )

I was told that Stag meant "alone". If that's the case wouldn't that song be a rip of George Thorougood and the Destoryers "I Drink Alone"

I knew it had to be a type of beer.

Basically it's a crappy beer, drunk only by old men who don't know any better. However, it seems Brian and other like-minded folks think and behave diiferently.

Stag Beer. Brewed in Bellevile from 1870 something until 1980 something. Cheap and awful. It's still cheap and awful, but it's not in B"ville anymore.

cheers

I'll have to agree that the Bottle Rockets set was way too short. But they still rocked. Son Volt set was near perfect. I was hopeful that a Tupelo song would make it out for the encore.

Highlights for me included Welfare Music & Windfall.

I agree. Especially during Buckner's set (more noticable because he was the only one ...besides Farrar ...to play solo). To bad, I hadn't seen him in years and would have liked to hear him better.

I have a really bad recording of I drink Stag by UT. But in the version I have it is not just the chorus of I DRINK STAG, but several verses in which they sing about the various beers they don't drink.

Does anyone have a decent copy of the song, it's sort of a cult classic for me.

Also, anyone know about a recording of the concert that might fliter onto the net?

It was a very, very good show.
Some general notes...

The Bottle Rockets had a very short set - way too short in my opinion. Brian has lost so much weight. They were a 3 piece last night for some reason.

Cortez the Killer...unfuckingbelievable. Windfall? Damn.

The "new" Son Volt? Rocked. Can't say anymore.

The crowd at Mississippi Nights? I wish they would just shut the hell up and stop talking through every damn song. I understand that they're all "hipper than thou", but christ man - packs of girls talking on their cell phones during Windfall...ugh.
