Jerry Garcia's Favorite beer and cigarettes?

#6104 3 years, 6 months ago
I've been trying to do some research online without a lot of help so far. Anyone know the answer to what Jerry Garcia's favorite or most drank beer is. Also what type of cigarettes he either liked or smoked most often. Thanks!

I dont really know but I don't picture Garcia as a beer drinker.
As far as smokes go I hear he smoked non-filters like Pall-Mall

Interestingly enough, I was told once his favorite beer was Newcastle Brown Ale. Certainly one of my favorites. : )

Definatly remember hearing something about him smoking unfiltered cigerattes. Dunno about the brand.

And, I dunno how much he drank, but that doesn't mean he didn't have a favorite....

So, in the end... Phil? Jill? Care to answer this one for our researcher?

I recall part of the JGB rider for SUNY Oswego 85 or 86 was Coca Cola & Lucky Strikes.

I also remember hearing the non-filter pall mall's, I believe he said they were harder to quit than heroin once. Beer, no clue but I would love to know as well!

I read somewhere Jerry's favorite beer was Anchor Liberty Ale.

But an online search to confirm my source discovered these other possiblities...

Sierra Nevada Porter
"Gradually sales began to grow in Chico, where the large population of students at California State University had a healthy thirst for beer. Distribution was later extended to San Francisco, where the beer was discovered by Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia. When word got out that Garcia loved the firm's porter, many of the band's loyal fans began to seek out Sierra Nevada's beers."

Sammy Smiths Taddy Porter
"...was one of guitarist Jerry Garcia's favorite brews.", " "A fatty porter" popular with Jerry Garcia when the "Dead" toured London; a classic; flavors border on stout with just enough sweetness to make this a tasty porter!"

Thought it was Camel non-filters, but what do I know?
Now I don't know, but I've been told, if the horse won't pull, you gotta carry the load.
I don't know whose back's that strong. Maybe find out before too long.

Let's rephrase the question: If beer were a musical instrument, what would Jerry play?
