Flashback.........HOME BEER circa 1985-89

A response in my Pabst Blue Ribbon thread gave me a flashback to this beer from my high school days. I'm from NJ and there was only one liquor store that sold this beer, it was simply called HOME beer. It was a plain white label with brown H O M E and beer underneath it. If memory serves me correct, it only cost about $5 or maybe $10 a case, I can't remember which it was, but it was CHEAP. The funniest thing about it, we would buy it and I swear we could stick it in the freezer for half an hour, take one out pop it open, take a sip and it would still be room temp. lol it was impossible to get it cold, we use to drink it on ice.

Anyone else remember this beer? Sold at Service Liquors on Amboy Ave in Perth Amboy, NJ. I lived about 15 min car ride from this liquor store. When I was in high school I use to drive my moped (15-16 years old) park it around the block from the store and walk in wearing my leather jacket and motorcycle helmet to get served. I would then take my case or two and tie them onto the back fender of my moped and drive the 30 mins home. How I never got pulled those were the days.
