When I was a kid I remember going to my uncle's house and he was always drinking Schaefer beer.
Does anyone remember what NY team Schaefer sponsored?
My guess would be the Brooklyn Dodgers and then the NY Mets. Rheingold was definitely the beer of the NY Yankees during my younger years.
And where does the Schaefer name come from?
Nope Rheingold was always the beer of the NY Mets A friend of mine just told me a story of when it was re-introduced by Liebman grandkids in the late 90's One weekend all they served at Shea Stadium was Rheingold like the old days There was almost a riot by the beer snobs that got used to the craft beers that were available. Schaefer bought a regional Baltimore beer in the 60's called Gunther and they sponsored the Baltimore Orioles and Colts Their name was on the scoreboard for many years After Rheingold started its decline in the 70's Schaefer sponsored the Mets for a couple of years before they went out I think it was around 1977
