Rolling Rock 33 - Mistake?

One last "33 Post" and then I will move on down the line. 

Did you know that Rolling Rock beer mysteriously features the number 33 on its back label? 

I say mysteriously because there are several explanations and theories as to how and why the 33 is there (click here.)

The label reads "TO HONOR THE TRADITION OF THIS GREAT BLEND WE QUOTE FROM THE ORIGINAL PLEDGE OF QUALITY."

One explanation has it that 33 appeared as a result of a mistake that occurred when the inscription was sent to the bottle maker.  Details follow:

So there you have it.  As Mick sings here - just bust another bottle at full throttle.
