Welcome to my "unofficial" Carling Black Label Tribute Page, where I share my love of Carling Black Label Beer. Yes, Carling Black Label....the beer your dad, mom, uncle, and grandfather drank!  I hope you enjoy your visit. There is plenty to see and do on the many pages here. So, grab a beer, kick back , and enjoy! Please bookmark this page as I try to update each chance I get.

If you have any comments, suggestions,"where to buy" submissions, or corrections about my site,please send me an e-mail, I would love to hear from you. Please do not write asking me what something is worth. I am a tight-wad and will not be very accurate in guessing a value. Try eBay.

I'm working of a Facebook page as well. So, look up "hey mabel black label . com " on Facebook !

NOTE:This site is strictly a fan site and is in no way affiliated with Carling Black Label Beer, MillerCoors Brewing Company, Pabst Brewing Company, any of their subsidiaries, or partners.

This site contains many high resolution images. If you are using "dial up" internet, several reloads may be necessary to view all images. Good things come to those who are patient and wait it out. This site works best with a 12 pack of beer, a free afternoon, and a high speed internet connection.

The not so BREAKING NEWS !

Belgian  brewer Inbev has bought Anheuser- Busch creating the largest brewer as well as consumer goods company in the world. The buyout also means that the Pabst Brewing Company is now the largest U.S. owned brewing company left. Other major U.S. owned brewers left include Boston Beer Co., which brews Samuel Adams, and D.G. Yuengling & Sons.

Molson-Coors of Montreal, CA & SABMiller of London, Eng. announce a joint U.S. venture. The new company is called MillerCoors and will have a corporate office in Chicago. No U.S. breweries will close and some Miller brands will be brewed at Coors breweries and some Coors brands will be brewed at Miller breweries. Coors Banquet will continue to be exclusively brewed in the Rockies at the Golden brewery ONLY.  

Anyone who knows me personally, or has spent any amount of time on this site, already knows my distaste for anything having to do with Anheuser-Busch (AKA THE EVIL EMPIRE). As if ruining the brewing industry in the '70's & '80's wasn't enough, now they have bought Rolling Rock beer, thrown around 250 brewery workers in Latrobe out of work, and moved the production of Rolling Rock to Newark, NJ !  Fortunately though, City Brewing of LaCrosse Wisconsin have stepped in and  bought the brewery in Latrobe and saved the jobs of the union workforce there. What does this have to do with Black Label? Not a damn thing actually, but my hatred for A-B equals my love for Carling Black Label, so there! Any questions, please see the little boy near  the bottom of this page :)

*the only Ed King I know used to play guitar with The Strawberry Alarm Clock and Lynyrd Skynyrd. I don't know why we should boycott his beer, but I'll go along with it... J

The brew house tower at the former Carling/Heileman/Stroh Baltimore brewery was scheduled to be demolished in April-May of 2005 and completed in Fall of 2005 to make way for more warehouse and office space. The rest of the former brewery will remain intact. Sad news nonetheless :.(

 Coors(Black Label in UK) & Molson(Black Label in Canada) finalize the merger that creates the fifth largest brewer in the world behind A-B, SABMiller, Heineken & Interbrew. The new company is called Molson- Coors and is headquartered in Denver Colorado.

This is a picture of Jimmy & Lisa Pike's local bar in Albany, Georgia. While the Oglethorpe Lounge , no longer carries Black Label, they couldn't part with the nice ( and rare)  neon sign that sits out front. In fact they still maintain and light it up ! There are very few of these left and this is the only one I have seen or know about. Here is a pic of it at night.....

Sept. 1,2002
Here is your web dude doing my "international" taste test on Carling. I had recently received a can of Carling Black Label from the UK, thanks to my Ebay friend Jeffrey Mills . This is the first side by side comparison I had ever done on CBL. The British version is darker in color, but lighter in body. Aftertaste is almost identical to the US version. Aroma is identical. The hop bitterness is perfect in both. The expiration date on the US version is Oct. 21,2002. The expiration date on the UK version is Mar 31, 2003. The UK version is in a 500ml steel can from Burton-On-Trent and the US version is in a 355ml aluminum can from Eden, NC. The more I drink of the British variety, the more I can't tell a difference!...Is that a bad thing ? Definitely not! I am quite pleased that that are very similar. If anyone visiting my site is willing to ship me a version from any other part of the globe, please e-mail me. I will pay all shipping cost.

..........and speaking of Carling Black Label from the UK, my good friend (in spite of being a Yankee fan),Tom Sawyer, sent me this awesome Carling commercial...

This commercial is a riot !...And would never be allowed on television in the United States! In fact, it has been barred from being shown before 9 PM on UK television. To read about this go    HERE  
To view the commercial, go here: Carling-Frustraiting
For the "director's cut" of this commercial, go here: http://www.kontraband.com/show/show.asp?id=0246

Here is another funny Carling commercial from the UK : Carling-Cracking

I posted the above commercial before youtube.com came into existence. For some awesome Black Label commercials, just type it into the search engine on youtube!

WANTED!!!: I need pictures of Carling breweries for my site. I am looking for pics of Ft. Worth, and Phoenix. If you can help, please e-mail me at :

Corzman69 reminds you to remember:

"Think before you drink"
"Friends don't let friends drive drunk"
"Know when to say when"
"21 means 21"
(The above are quotes from the major brewers)

Corzman69's favorite quotes:
"If God had intended for us to drink beer, he would have given us stomachs." --David Daye

"Friends don't let friends drink Budweiser" --any normal person

"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading" -- Henny Youngman

"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case, Coincidence?" -- Stephen Wright

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" -- Benjamin Franklin

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you
that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza" -- Dave Barry

"Hey Mabel..uh..I mean Debbie........Black Label !" --- Charlie Smigo

"You never take a piss, you always leave one" -- Warren Smigo

"He was a wise man who invented beer" -- Plato

"I would kill everyone in the room for a drop of sweet beer" -- Homer Simpson

"Whiskey's too rough, champagne cost too much, vodka put my mouth in gear. This little refrain will help me explain. As a matter of fact, I like beer!" -- Tom T. Hall

"Well , I woke up this mornin', and I got myself a beer" -- Jim Morrison

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I think to myself that it is better to drink this beer  and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver " -- Jack Handy

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that is as good as they're going to feel all day " -- Frank Signature

"Do not cease to drink beer, to eat, to intoxicate thyself, to make love, and celebrate the good days"--Ancient Egyptian proverb

"Well, you see Norm,it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that get killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.
 In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine ! That's why you always feel smarter after a couple of beers." ---  Cliff Clavin explaining to Norm during an episode of Cheers

 "It is better to have loved a beer and to have lost a few brain cells than to have never loved a beer at all." --

"Here's to a long life and a merry one.
 A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer and another one!" (author unknown)
