Bob the Postman BS: Puke Wines (67* d) RE: BS: Puke Wines 29 Feb 12


Vancouver, 1972. Me and Lee used to jam with some help from a 26er of Four Aces sherry—the only 26er in the LCB store on Main that cost less than a dollar—99 cents, to be precise. After a while they replaced Four Aces with Old Niagara. Same "sherry", same price, but with a label aimed at the little old lady demographic instead of the skid row crowd.

And I recall a bargain Hungarian claret that tasted like they crushed the grapes by putting them in a trough and driving a surplus Red Army jeep back and forth through them.

B. C.'s Calona Wines had the jack series—Double Jack, which was 80% apple juice and 20% ethanol. If you got so sick on Double Jack that you couldn't touch it anymore you could always try Berry Jack or Cherry Jack. They all came in a 40 ounce jug so you could swig the poison hillbilly style.
