Stag Beer. The PBR of the St. Louis area.

In the US, PBR is considered terrible beer. Meanwhile, in China:

The beer they call PBR costs $44. Per bottle.

High Life is the best cheap beer.

Crabs is the best STD.

Milwaukee's Best

Beast. It's called Milwaukee's Beast.

If it says light on the bottle, it's not worth drinking. If you're that concerned about calories, you shouldn't be drinking anyway. Lager is terrible anyway.

I love beer, and I'm willing to pay for something at least on the good side of average. This kind of shiat is like chewing on tinfoil.

If it's just to get a cheap drunk on, buy some bottom-shelf vodka and be done with it.  It's cheaper, too.

I grew up in Chicago, and outside every bar in the city would either be a sign hanging or a neon sign in the window advertising Old Style.

Ditto.  Old Style is what we drank while smelt fishing, after the deep-fried mushrooms ran out.

I've heard of them, but I've never drank them. I don't drink.

So much this.  Why do people get drunk on beer?  I appreciate a good buzz after a few Chimays or whatever.  But, yeah, if I want to be drunk... vodka.

It's much safer. Also, for variety.

So they can make it to half-time Sunday night.
Or so they don't fall out of the boat.

People in Chicago always brag about Old Style. Before I drink that swill again, it's gonna be a while...

Hey you motherfarkers, I only drink Bud.

/not really, but it is my favorite shiatty beer

All my North American brethren have n idea what bad beer is until they try Spain's national beer, Cruzcampo.

It's like water found a way to rot and gain a capacity for hate.

Bought a case of these once. "How bad could it be?"

Both of these. If I'm looking for a cheap buzz I'll just grab a handle of Fleischmann's.

Listen, this guy didn't even try the cheapest of the cheap beers:

<a href="http://imgur.com/6cLsv"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/6cLsv.jpg" alt="" title="Hosted by imgur.com" /></a>

A beer that was available for $2.99/12-pack at a regional outlet store (and they had a lot of it, because it lasted for weeks, yet I'd always see people with the stuff in their carts).
I spurged for a few half-cases for camping purposes (mostly of the light variety... which in-and-of-itself was horrible, even when served cold enough so as to not have any flavor AT ALL), and my oh my, it was baaaad.

What is GameDay beer, you ask? Why, it's apparently 7-Eleven's own brand of cheap swill.
 
2012-12-27 06:25:59 PM
Okay, I hate new and improved Fark. LOL

/it's TOO easy
//so easy that I don't post enough pictures to remember just how easy it is to use these days
 
2012-12-27 06:31:26 PM
Incidentally, I miss Trader Joe's, because every so often they'd have a few varieties of $4 or $5 6-packs of stuff from other areas that weren't half-bad.

puffy999: A beer that was available for $2.99/12-pack at a regional outlet store


I can remember a time back in high school when 12-packs of Hamms were on sale for $3 each. Much shiatty beer was consumed that weekend.

Hire the hell is Pabst still being sold anyways?

I get so sick of people claiming that cheap beer is bad... then claiming that some f*cking microbrew with farking PUMPKIN is great. Get a grip. It's beer, and drinking sh*t with Farking PUMPKIN is gross. Grow up.

/Old Style is just fine.
//Pabst is better, but the freaking Hipsters made it expensive.
///If you drink a beer with Farking Pumpkin, drink wine you homo.

So basically, they drove around southeastern Wisconsin and looked for any bar whose sign out front looked like this:

And then tried every beer that was depicted on the top half of any such sign.

Back on Long Island in the early 80's,We could get a six-pack of
Shmidts for 99 cents.Warm.In the winter we would each grab a six,
Go behind the store and drink.By the time we got on the 3rd beer they
would be cold.

My first mistake was the sitting. Beers of this type are not supposed to be drunk while sitting, unless perhaps the seat in question is mounted on a riding mower.

I love this guy. I want to buy him a beer.
 
2012-12-27 07:17:59 PM
WHAR STEGMAIER WHAR?

My roommate freshman year got his hands on a case during winter break. I think he paid $6 and we drank the hell out of it. I'm sure it was awful but back then it was terrific.

My preferred beer is superior to your preferred beer and therefore you are an inferior person.

BA Reviews, the newest review is awesome


FTFReviews: "Easy drinking, thirst quenching beer, great for parties if you want to drink a lot (especially for a low price.) Nothing really offensive but nothing good."

Kids and alcoholics are fking retarded. What's the point of drinking something gross just to get drunk if it takes a lot of the grossness to get drunk?

Rapmaster2000:

No no no. Old Style. It was my ber of choic till Liquor Barn quit carrying it.


Crabs is the best STD.

So that's why porn stars are all shaved these days.

Speaking of STDs, what IS this thing with barebacking in the porn biz? Do they have a death wish? I don't even want to get chlamydia a fourth time. (Assuming I ever get laid again: EIP!!!)
 
2012-12-27 07:21:38 PM
What a freaking failure of an article. Dude wastes half the article saying he's going to try the cheap beers and tries the regular large well known macrobrewery stuff? farking pussy? Wake me when he tries shiatty garbage like Steel Reserve or the worst I've tried, Mountain Crest.

WTF Indeed: Rapmaster2000: High Life is the best cheap beer.

Crabs is the best STD.

You mean Genny Cream Ale and Syphilis: The Hipster STD.


The Kroger near my college sold 30 cases of Genny for $9. NINE DOLLARS. You can't pass that up no matter how shiatty the beer is. What, I'm going to spend $6 on a 6 pack of Bud Light? Either you get the good stuff that starts $7+ per six pack, or you get as much as you can of the cheap stuff.
