Quick question I'm hoping you can help me with. I own an old neon light for "Clipper Beer" and am trying to find out who brewed this beer. I was told at one time that the beer was a dark beer brewed by Schlitz in the 1950s, but I have not been able to verify. Can you help? Thanks in advance for any effort.

Clipper was made by Miller Brewing Company from 1979 until 1981.
