Hey Robby, I used to drink Michelob, but not in the era of that bottle. But, have always liked the "sexy" shape of it;). I remember my pop having a couple displayed on the shelf in his basement bar.
Cool find,

never found one of those before , don't remember Michelob ever coming in such a bottle , although not sure what year they started selling it in Canada .

pretty sure its only been available here more recently , find modern Michelob bottles and cans pretty often , not as popular as some other light beer brands but people who drink it

I find tons of michelob, budweiser and corona bottles. Along roads and in the bushes. When and if they ever become valuable, i know where lots of them are. Not that they will. No labels or caps, if they are on the bottle they are usually rusted.

I can't imagine they'd ever be valuable , years later they might be worth a couple bucks but on average its about 30 years before things start to become collectable , why stuff from the 80's and early 90's is collectable now but wasn't 10 or 15 years ago

there is a 10 cent deposit on modern beer bottles here , if you return them to the beer store , that's where most of the ones I find go , unless there broken then its in glass recycling


I've had Michelob before at our local pub , its on the water , way overpriced , like $6 or $7 for 1 bottle but considering the atmosphere it wasn't that bad and you don't have to worry about driving home impaired if your drinking beer that light , but they've been closed since march due to covid 19 , funny the little things you miss , not sure when they'll reopen or if they even still sell that beer , was a couple beers they cut last year

The picture you posted does look like the first style used, I had a chance to buy one with labels and cap at a beer can show near me last October, it was only priced at a dollar....lol.....I'm not sure why I didn't buy it at that price and still ask myself that question often, here's a comparison picture of the early (on the left) and then commonly used bottles, also a pic with label of the early version.e3859eb1c977b874322f7a69f1d99996.jpgMichelob.gif

I would have bought the bottle. So that's what the label looked like. They look like they did not change too much (if i am not mistaken) with the newer ones. Thanks for the pictures RoyalRuby. P. S. Ruby is my birthstone.

I know we are going to maybe lose some places (bars and restaurants) that were not doing too great in the first place. We as a people may not be living into our 90s and 100s as much. Bummer.
