Pappy Kershenstine Rattlesnake Beer


People probably know Pappy Kershenstine from their beef jerky products, (my review of their beef jerky on www.beefjerkyland.com), but back in the late 80's or maybe early 90's I remember them having their own beer and wine coolers. They used to sell them in the Houma, Louisiana area and Biloxi/Gulfport, Mississippi areas if I remember correctly. I've been wondering if they still make their Rattlesnake Beer? Now, don't get me wrong, as I remember it, the beer wasn't the best thing in the world, but I've been dying to drink it again. Before I start calling the company, I'd like to know if anyone has seen this beer out there recently. Please let me know.

  1. No I Havent. However I remember Rattlesnake wine coolers in the mid to late 80's. They were the best ever. Im from Northern California so I know they made it out to the west coast. Where in the world did you find that bottle in the picture? That is exactly the design on their wine coolers. Oh, to be young again...

    1. They were my favorite as well - when they started making "malt beverage coolers" instead of wine coolers, these disappeared, and I am on a quest to find them (I am also from Texas, so maybe it was regional).

  7. I googled this wine cooler as well BC I too have fond drunken memories when lI ived in Lake Charles/Westlake areas..it as cancelled in 01-16-1992 now all you have as options go, either buy a real bottle of white wine or settle for coolers that are merely malt beer and not near the alcohol content as Rattler! Miss them as well and good luck in your searches.
