A Promising Start

From A Story without Heroes: The Cautionary Tale of Malt Liquor:
At Gluek Brewing in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Alvin Gluek had a similar idea in 1942. The grandson of the brewery's founder, Alvin was happiest in the laboratory, tinkering. And one day, he found a way to brew a beer that would use less malt but have more of a kick. He named his malt liquor Sparkling Stite by Gluek [...]
Okay, not so promising.

Alternate names:
Gluek's Glitter
Maltese Fullcan
Guts Beer
Torrid Water

Torrid Water I'd drink.

In great volumes.

Not only that, you could sell the shit out of Torrid Water in a combat zone.

You wanna tell a grunt with SAW and 500 Rounds that he can't have any more Torrid Water?

Didn't think so...

Wait! Don't do it!

The torrid beer would lose half the flavour same if you did that.

I meant, the torrid water. Torrid beer is what I have been drinking for the last few hours.

I can see the commercial now: you scratch the gold paint off a Maltese Fullcan only to discover the can is actually made of lead. Too bad you killed all those folks to get your hands on one! "Maltese Fullcan... the stuff that dreams are made of." FIN

Maltese Fullcan rules.

Maltese Fullcan is a dog porn star, isn't he?

Gluek's is now a restaurant, and not a bad one at that.

The Monte Gluek'o is going a little far.
