Rumour has it that Olympia Beer is "pausing production".
I remember when I was a kid (late 70s) some buddies of mine (RRMC!) were planning a motorcycle trip during a beer strike. We realized finding beer was going to be an issue and Oly beer was the only beer that could be found in liquor stores (if found at all). So... other than sleeping bags and a cassette stereo, all we packed was Olympia beer. I think between 4 bikes we managed 8 cases of Oly!
and of course there was the Evel aspect of Olympia Beer that was appealing as a kid
Hope to see you again old friend!

Lifelong Motorcycho enthusiast Jimmy Mac tipped us off on this racing legend
Sammy is a member of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame
you can read all about him HERE
Not only did Sammy race, but he also Rock and Rolled!
The story is…
One summer, an announcer jokingly said that Tanner was a rock 'n' roll star back home in Texas. Fans swamped him after the race asking for his autograph and copies of his record. Tanner quickly hit the local recording studio and cut a record based on his nickname. The song began: "When I was born in a Texas shack, Pop took one look and said send him back. No scrawnier runt ever lived than me, but now I’m known as the 'Flying Flea.’"
