Schlitz tall boys in Los Angeles

I was out at a bar last night, and had the classic 60's formula Schlitz (comes in a "tall boy" can). That was a really good cheap beer and I want some in my beer fridge. I've never seen it in the supermarket though and bevmo doesn't stock it. Anyone know where to buy it? I'm in the west la area.

(I'd also recommend trying it to anyone who likes the Simpler Times / Name Tag / PBR kinds of beers)

  1. Try convenience stores...

    7-11 etc. I've noticed they stock lots of the types of beers you're talking about.

    1. Ramirez in Boyle Heights probably has it. Give them a call. Maybe Galco's in Highland Park. You're gonna have to schlep from the West-side, though.

      1. I'll keep an eye out in convenience stores. Ramirez doesn't have it, and highland park would be a hike, if they had it. That's odd that a cheap beer would be harder to find than a craft beer.

        1. If all else fails, you could always contact the bar and find out who their supplier is. Even if it's just a wholesaler, you can probably get in touch with the local distributor and find out if there are any retail stores they supply.

          1. Go to .... It has a locator function and shows hundreds of retailers in LA.
