    This most definitely won't be cheap, but in the spirit of things:
    http://www.zeenews.com/articles.asp?aid=341280&sid=FTP I sure would like some.

    In college we used to drink Weideman's (sp?), which we could get at the local grocery for something ridiculous like $3.99 per 12-pack.
    As my housemate Mikey once put it, "if you drink it really fast while it's really cold, it's not too bad."


    Yeah! I must be a little older than you, because in my first few years out of law school we used to pay that price for a case of Wiedeman's or Braumeister. "Cheaper than beer!"

    Not good, but what did you expect? We would also occasionally get Falstaff, aka Falsa.

    Or maybe I've inflated the price to what now strikes me as a plausible level. I actually first was thinking that we paid that for a case of Weideman's, but then I convinced myself: "Don't be ridiculous - it couldn't have been that cheap, we must have been getting 12-packs!"
    I stand corrected. Thank you, sir.

    I have to say, that Suffolk Vintage Ale is one of the finest British ales I've ever had. Wow. It's a blend of fresh English ale, and 2 year oak aged ale. Also, the Okocim Porter (8%) exceeded my expectations, given that I've never had a Polish porter before. The Paulaner double bock (?) was horrible. The De Koninck stuff was sub-par for stuff from Belgium. Petrus Old Brown was disappointing too. Belgium has let me down lately... [​IMG]

    As far as dirt cheap goes, it's Natty Light since High School. Step up, Coors Light. The following are the cheapish beers that I legitimately enjoy. Very cold.

    American: Highlife
    Mexican: Carta Blanca
    Chinese: Tsing Tao
    Japanese: Asahi
    Germany: Spaten
    Netherlands(?): Amstel Light

    It seems like everywhere I go lately is selling Yuengling pints for $2 so I'll go with that.

    I have been having some Old Milwaukee (not to be confused with the barrel of shit that is Milwaukee's Best) and its not bad for what it is..far better than PBR and I think I'd take it over bud.

    Considering I got 2 24-cases for $4 (there was a rebate...) I would have to say it was the best beer for the price ever.

    Grafenwalder German lager from Lidl at 75p for a 500ml tin. It is reiheitsgebot so no chemicals.

    Not the best beer in the world, but very drinkable at a lowish price.

    Not sure how cheap you wanna go, but my favorite cheap is "GourmetBryggeriet"'s double bock, which is around 2,5$ for half a litre. 4 for 2 $ on sale...

    Sucks - the two cheap beers I love are impossible to find here -

    1> Yeungling
    2> Mich Light - ever since ultra came out, finding Mich Light is harder than spotting a chupacabra

    I find that genesee beer quenches my pallette quite nicely.
    10.99 for a 30 rack

    local beer for me, a little background on myself: College student, lives with 7 other guys. Ill do the 30 rack in a night.

    the best part of genesee beer is that its soo pissed water down it doesnt stain my nice cloths =D
