Cheap Beers: Best and Worst

Fri May 11, 2007 8:36 pm

Alright, when concerning cheap beer, and I'm not talking Bud/Miller, which ones are your favorites and least favorites?

In the running, there's....

Keystone
Natty
The Beast
High Life
Busch
Lone Star (dunno if available outside of TX)
Schlitz

I'm sure I forgot a few, so please feel free to add...

Although all of these beers are shit, there are times when they're appropriate...

For the favorite, I'm going to go with Keystone simply because it has the least taste. If chilled properly, it's like drinking carbonated water. High Life isn't bad either. The least favorites have got to be Natty and the Beast...

And for the UK version, I'm going to go with Carling... can't stand the stuff, especially when you can get Heineken, Amstel, Grolsch, Carlsberg, Kronenbourg and other not bad lagers for a few extra p. Not really a huge Stella fan either.

For Oz, worst cheap beer would be Melbourne Bitter. Horrible stuff. Also Fosters (they're both from the same brewer). West End from Adelaide is horrid as well.

Best cheap beer would be Toohey's dry, nice & smooth, and VB (Victoria Bitter)
Essendon - Whatever it takes......

Over the past few months I've learned to appreciate the wonder that is Natty Ice. There's nothing like that stong liquor-like aftertaste that makes you cringe after each sip. It's a great beer for Beirut(or Beer Pong), but not for drinking straight up.

Keystone is the worst though. How good can a watered-down version of the already watered-down Coors Light be?

It's sad that after 1 year of college, I now consider Bud Light a premium beer.

Best cheap beers in Germany: Oettinger Pils, the case with twenty 0.5 liter bottles comes for 5.00 EUR usually, when it is on special offer it only cost 4.60 EUR. My second favourite cheap beer is Paderborner Pils, the case with twenty 0.5 liter bottles cost usually 4.80 EUR. Both beers taste pretty good IMO.

Worst cheap beers in Germany: All the stuff from Lidl and Plus which comes in plastic bottles, simply disgusting!  yuck

Life is too short for cheap beer. Here in New Jersey, one can get good sale prices for good beer including Coors, Bud, Miller and the like, especially in 12, 24 and 30 packs of cans. I have tried some of the 'cheap' beers over the years, but my tastes got better over the years.

Ahh, when I was in Texas, we didn't have 30 packs of Bud/Miller. The options were either a 24 case of bud for around $18, or 30 'stones for $12. If I'm buying for myself or a few buddies, I'd definately go with the bud (or better, 20 long necks for the same price), but when you're buying in volume for parties, saving $6 a case goes a long way.

On a slightly unrelated topic, there was an amazing deal at a Whole Foods in Houston before I left. You could get a 6 pack of any of their select beers (most of these are microbrews) for around $8. It's fantastic because you can essentially create your own 6-pack, try 6 different beers in 1 pack.

And then I moved to England, and it's turned me into an ale man!

I was pleasantly surprised to see the stuff outside of Texas. Although not my favorite beer, it's not a bad brew at all, especially considering that it's not much more expensive than Bud or Miller.

About the cheapest I'll go on a six pack of beer is $5.99. Most of the beers I drink run between $6.99-$7.99 a six pack.

There have been times in the past when I've drank cheap beers. Years back when I worked at AirTran, on some nights, we used to all throw in a few bucks and sent the first guy who was getting off of work to the store to pick up a couple of 12s of whatever was cheapest (usually Natty Light). There were some Saturdays nights when some of the folks in our group that didn't have a Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday line would sit in the parking lot sipping on some Old School beers like Schaffers and Hamm's. By the time you started on your third one, the taste didn't matter anymore.

My buddies always liked it when I brought beer over because it meant that they'd have good beer for a change instead of Bud Light, Miller Lite, or Natty Light.

The absolute worst I recall is one from the 70's called "Texas Pride." It was about as cheap as you could get, but had a horrible tast and left a scummy coating on the teeth....

Another bad one was Schlitz, even though it wasn't always the cheapest.

I recall 'Red, White and Blue' being fairly decent if it was cold enough.

That is a good beer. Miller bought the brand in 1972. Miller Lite is Meister Brau Lite. It is no secret, it is part of the history of Miller.

One of the problems that gives cheap beer a bad name is that many times it is old and expired. Less than a year ago I was in Chicago and I ordered a Old MIlwaukee at a bar and it expired four year prior. Many times a lot of slow moving brands are old and they taste bad because of it. There is a store by my house that have three year old Schlitz. Even the best beers taste bad after about six months.

I thought I share something I saw at the East Atlanta Beer Festival yesterday. Get this, there were actually giving out samples of PBR (From what I heard is the Official Beer of East Atlanta) and Miller High Life. I don't know about the rest of you, but when I go to a beer festival, I tend to try beers I've never had before. If you go to a beer festival and are drinking what's essentially swill beer, you ought to be publicly flogged. You paid $25 to go this event and you're mostly drinking PBR.  no  Yes, I'm being a bit of a beer snob in that regards. Heck I was disappointed that one of my favorite local breweries didn't bring any other beers besides the two year round ones they currently sell.

The way I see it, going to a beer festival and drinking just the cheap beers they're giving out samples of would be like going to a nice steakhouse and ordering a hamburger. There's all sorts of awesome Belgian beers (along with some really good microbrews) being sampled at this event and you're drinking PBR.

I don't know about the rest of you, but when I go to a beer festival, I tend to try beers I've never had before. If you go to a beer festival and are drinking what's essentially swill beer, you ought to be publicly flogged.

I agree with you 100% But how many people do you know that think Budweiser, MGD or Coors Light are great tasting beer. It simply amazes me the love affair people have with those brands. I just don't get it?
I will have a Manhattan.

I am in America now and brought one bottle with me. I have a freind who is a self described beer genius and gave it to him telling him this was good beer in Germany. He drank it and went on to describe all about the beer and whatever and that is how a real quality beer should taste. Then I told him it was 29cents at the store(0.5l). It was pretty funny.

ROFL! I bet he was slightly embarrassed afterward....

That stuff is pretty bad, but getting drunk for 1.50 is a pretty good deal!

This is the most diabolical foul tasting stuff ever.
But it is dirt cheap.

I actually drank that a lot of that when I was in Texas. However, I had to struggle with the comments of my American friends.

My second favourite cheap beer is Paderborner Pils, the case with twenty 0.5 liter bottles cost usually 4.80 EUR. Both beers taste pretty good IMO.

Paderborner is just awesome. You cant get anything better for that kind of money.

I haven't seen it outside Texas, although Shiner Bock is available just about anywhere now.

Now that is some really good stuff. You can see that Shiner was founded by a Czech and a German  Wink


Has anyone had San Miguel from Spain yet? One can of that and I would have to puke on the floor immediately.
