"Billy" was supposedly brewed to the stringent standards of one Billy Carter of Plains, GA. [;)] Four different companies actually produced it; here in the Midwest in came from Falls City and down South Pearl was the brewer, but the other 2 escape me at the moment.Brad
Those would have been West End (Utica) in Utica, N. Y. and Cold Spring in Minnesota. I used to have all five can variations: Pearl and West End’s were aluminum; Cold Spring’s was straight steel; and Falls City used first a drawn steel can, then aluminum.
Billy was fun to drink because nobody believed that anyone could actually enjoy it.
