I've been lurking and enjoying for a while now, and I hope you folks may know something about an old friend. When I was in college in Pittsburgh in the days when there were real steelworkers and real bars near the university, I'd unwind with a real Pittsburgh specialty - a boilermaker consisting of Sam Thompson rye washed down with a Stoney's on draft. Wow, I can still remember the honesty of that combination. I then occasionally would buy a bottle for a straight dram. As I recall, it was distilled in Large, PA, and the label had a drawing of the distillery on it. I've been through Large, and have never found the distillery. Scrambled eggs and a good shot of Sam was my breakfast the day my son was born, and it toasted his baptism 25 years ago. I hear from PA liquor control board employees that it has not been seen in many years. It was a surprisingly smooth but lean whiskey then, and made me really understand the Whiskey Rebellion. I'd like to track some down, just to say thanks.
