If you say Pittsburgh beer, the first thing to pop into most people’s minds is going to be Iron City. I’m sure these commercials (and many others) played a key role in the connection. Through the years, some commercials have captured the city better than others.
13. Pour on the Iron: Backyard football
Can easily say I haven’t seen any adults playing backyard football … ever.
12. Show them where you live.
Ah, appealing to the homer in all of us.
11. Gimme the night. Gimme an IC Light
Clear, refreshing and bright. The choice is always right.
10. Pour on the Iron: Wedding
This looks like more fun than most weddings I’ve attended.
9. Pour on the Iron: Keg tapper
Al Luccioni demonstrates the art of tapping a keg
8. Dedicated to the preservation of the wild life
Not sure if any of this ever happened in Pittsburgh, though.
7. Pour on the Iron
Sparkling, robust flavor that does your thirst a favor.
6. Workin’ on a cold Iron
Pure 1990s cheese.
5. Hey, gimme an IC Light
Pure 1980s cheese. Who hasn’t had this happen on a city bus?
4. Pump an Iron
A rollicking country song with plenty of Steelers imagery.
3. Pour it on, Slugger
Bill Mazeroski pitching the local brew.
2. You can’t keep an Iron man down
A classic tune.
1. Tell ‘Em Ray
An absolute gem, and the inspiration for this list. Can’t quantify how many times this ran during Penguins telecasts.
