Ask Real Beer

July 1999

In 1990 I was in San Antonio, Texas, and had a bottle of Rattle Snake beer. The bartender told me that it was brewed in Arizona (I think). Anyways I was wondering if you had ever heard of it and if so, how could I get a hold of some. Thank you for your assistance.

Beer Dave reports the Dixie Brewery of New Orleans and the Dubuque Brewery of Iowa brewed this beer off and on during the 1990s. It was brewed for a contract company known as Kershenstine Diamond of Europa, Mississippi.
