Wow, I didn't think anybody was still drinking  Bayer-Bräu Schwarzes Röslein. I mean, don't get me wrong, I used to love the stuff, guzzle it down like water, if you get my drift. But now...meh. I think the last straw was seeing a six-pack of it in Total Beverage. I mean, come on. There are some great Donklebocks coming onto the market, though....The Hoppensläger Hoppenfeist Royal Coffee Donkleback Premium Ultra is one that surprised me a little with its smooth, long-roasted finish. I was also impressed by the Hopaggeddon Tornädic Triple Pale "F5" Donkleale, which takes the donklebock concept and really ramps it up a notch -- for the better, I thought. Although if you're looking for a more traditional approach, you can't go wrong with the Donklelager Triple Fermented Hopalong Cässidy "Road Wrängler" Extra Stout. Good stuff, I tell you.

They drink it because it's cheap.  If they raise the price they're shooting themselves in the foot.  All that business goes to Tecate.

God help us.

Actually, if bar owners, breweries, and beer retailers manage to separate posers from a little more of their parent's money, I'm fine with that. I support anything that makes the brewing industry healthier because it ultimately means more beer for me.

I am not a beer snob, and I don't even like Belgians usually, but I was pissed that I missed out on the lottery for the Westvleteren 12 when they sent some over.  Did anybody here get any?

I am old and not a hipster, and love all kinds of beer.  Pabst is decent cheap swill, for cutting the grass, lounging in the heat all day, etc.

It is also good when you are out drinking booze, and want to hang for the duration, to throw in a pbr now and then, rather then getting hammered on spirits.

I have been known to go to a few penny pbr nights, drink 15 of them, and verbally harass hipsters.
 
2013-05-23 10:23:55 AM
As someone whose cheap beer of choice is PBR (all the other cheap beers give me instant nightmarish diarrhea) I can confirm that this is indeed the case. I went out to a bar downtown a few weeks ago and ordered a pizza and a beer. That PBR cost me $3.50. Yeah let that soak in a little bit

PBR is a headache in a can. I like my cheap beers though, mostly un-ironically. What I look for in a cheap beer is how closely can they mimic the experience of drinking carbonated water, yet still provide a buzz with a crisp note of something that reminds me of actual beer.

I now go to liquor stores and utilize 4th grade math skills determining value through the price + alcohol content of the beer I buy.

At least it's a problem to have now -- ten or fifteen years ago, there wasn't much variety.

I think it's like 5$ or 6$ for a six pack of black label.

It's the beer of choice for the homeless. And it farking tastes like it, too.

A buddy of mine from Scotland and I used to go this hipster club in Jackonville, called Club TSI.  It is right next to a few other clubs, this was from around 2006-2008.

It was hilarious to see kids in their dancing to 80s music dancing and dressed like there only fashion sense from the time came from Madonna, Cindy Lauper, and the video for Let them Know its xmas time.

Except in the 80s we took showers, had no bad tattoos, and the guys tended to dress well outside of the pink shirts.  The bright colors were mainly for women, and only assholes shopped at Benetton.

The cheapest is about $7.59 for a six pack. And that's really bad beer.
A flat (24) of Old Milwaukee cans is $32.49.
A case (12 bottles) of Canadian macro (e.g. Labatts Blue, Molson Canadian) is about $22.29.
