I'm a patriot for Pennsylvania

Flew home for 40 hours of fourth of July Family Reunion.  While Straub Dark is probably the coolest PA beer, what with the pre-prohibition independent rural north-central status, I still kept going back to the Prima Pils.  Straub Dark has a whisper of dark malt character and some sweetness, but it just can't get over that all too simple, American lager tang.  And corn.  But that's what makes it cool I guess.  And the word on the street in Wilcox is that they're canning now.  Which only makes it cooler.  I can't imagine a Straub bock is too far away.  A similar brand is stuggling here in Indiana, Champagne Velvet.
