Is Red Dog (debuted in 1994) even being made anymore? It’s not here in the grocery stores in Hampton Roads. I would think if it was still being made nationwide, it would have its own website, but all it has is a little mention on the Miller Coors website. Maybe its only available close to the brewery. Someone on YouTube four months ago commented that they had one —- but can you really trust YouTube comments?
Of course, I was WAY too young to drink when it came out, but I remember seeing the commercials and hearing about it on the radio—for only a year or so though, then it was as though its fifteen minutes of fame was over. Poor ‘lil bulldog. Sales leveled after the first year. 2
Don’t forget Red Tick Beer from the episode of Simpsons where The X Files come to see Homer.
