On the back of bottles of Rolling Rock, right below the description of the beer, is the number "33" in quotation marks. My friends and I are wondering what this means. We live in Pennsylvania and drink a lot of beer, and we've only now noticed that it's there. No hurry for an answer, I'm just curious if it has any meaning.

Over the years, the '33' has taken on a mythic quality, and numerous theories have arisen, but the explanation that I find most plausible is the one given by the company that brews Rolling Rock: '33' is a reference to the number of words in the slogan printed on the label. I've reposted the links I mentioned above, and have gathered a few more for you.

Thanks for asking a question that was entertaining and educational to research. I'd often wondered about that '33' as I pondered the mysteries of the universe while swigging a beer! Now there's one less mystery, but fortunately there's still plenty of Rolling Rock. Best regards, pinkfreud
