Ask Real Beer
Hello, my name is Jeff Cresto and I am from San Diego, California. Did you
know it's legal to drink beer on the beach down here?
I am hoping you can help me with a long and unsuccessful search. I am
trying to find my dad's favorite beer of all time. It is called Herman
Joseph, and it's the premium beer brewed by Coors. It is named after the
founder of Coors and is damn hard to find. I would love to buy it for him
as anice surprise since he hasn't had it or even seen it in years. Please
let me know of anywhere or any possible way that I could buy him a case. I
and my father would VERY much appreciate any help and insight you can give
on locating Herman Joseph. Thank you for your time and effort.
From Beer Dave: After three separate lackluster attempts at marketing this brand the
Coors people have given up the sip! This brand is no longer in
production. It went out for good about two years ago. The closest thing
to the original HJ is the Winterfest brew that they issue every holiday.
