I'm pretty far from a beer snob. I love craft brews, but I'll get cheap beer and be perfectly happy with it when the mood strikes. Coors, PBR, Bud, Schlitz, Miller, Hamm's... if you don't want 'em, I'll take 'em.

That said, f*ck Rolling Rock with a thousand barbed dildos. Blecch.

Yeah, I don't really drink beer anymore... but when I did I preferred the good stuff.  And went out of my way to find unique craft brews.  But at the same time, nothing wrong with downing a bunch of Budweiser at a tailgate or what have you.

/I do draw the line at light beers.  Ugh!

No Olympia? Their label looks like the kind of engravings you see on old stock certificates.

The page was for LABELs.

At the end is a slideshow for taste - and of course it is in there.

We don't get it here but I get a Yuengling every time I am in an area that carries it.

Wisconsin beers are well represented on this list. Take that as you will, I'm drinking New Glarus tonight.

Sometimes less is more. This should have made the list.

If I'm buying the cheap stuff the only thing on the label that matters to me anymore is "union made".

I'd rather have some of my money go to union workers who make a living wage than go to some in-bred descendant of a robber baron or some corporate giant that has succeeded in increasing stockholder dividends by cutting wages and benefits to its wage slaves.

Taste (or lack thereof) is pretty much the same.

Being a Bears fan, there's not much I like about Wisconsin, but, Point is heads and shoulders above the other crap on that list.

I acquired a taste for bad beer (read: college) so when I would drink a good beer, I wouldn't like it.

Having said that, I could never stomach "Keystone"

It was Old Milwaukee for me.  It was the cheapest keg you could get, so it was at every party. Speewwww!  I happily drank Rhinelander, rather than Old Milwaukee.

List fails without Olde Frothingslosh. In the old can with the fat chicks on them. Not the new cans.

For me it was Milwaukee's Best Ice... Everyone had it, never could drink it.

Only one Canadian beer on the list, but as far as canadian beer with nifty labels that tastes like shiat, i'll go with Alpine anyday.

Best labels up here are on the microbrewery stuff usually. Picaroons has a wide variety of brews and some pretty awesome and artistic labels.

Great label, but would you really consider that bottom shelf?
 
2014-02-04 07:34:05 PM
It's not a horse on the Rolling Rock bottle, it's a pony. Rolling Rock was originally sold mostly in 7-ounce bottles; being undersized, they were called pony bottles. The ribbon under the pony head on the back of the bottle used to read "A Little Nip"--describing both the contents and what ponies may do to the unwary.

Walgreens had Big Flats 6 packs on sale for 2 for $5.

I was very tempted.

Drank some in college; even the aluminum cans felt cheap, like you could almost see the beer inside.

I'm with you.  I really like craft brews, but I've learned that if I just want to drink to get buzzed, then why spend 3x as much?  I prefer High Life and Bud Light Platinum in that scenario.

How long has Pabst being riding that blue ribbon anyway?

zerkalo: How long has Pabst being riding that blue ribbon anyway?


The company has historically claimed its flagship beer was renamed Pabst Blue Ribbon following its win as "America's Best" at the World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago in 1893. Even though it earned that name, it never actually won a blue ribbon.

I'm honestly shocked that Huffpo stopped doing slideshows.

There is no King Cobra on this list.  It therefore fails.

I'm the same as those earlier in that I prefer good beer, but it's not unusual for me to say 'f*ck it' and just get Icehouse or whatever.  So I saw this, and was tempted, too.  But man...I've never had it, is that stuff beyond ghastly, or should I have just picked some up?  I'm willing to drink High Life, as a point of reference.

See, I agree with the sentiment, but for me, it's Miller Lite that I can't stand.  Rolling Rock is actually my favorite cheap beer.  Yum alcoholic corn water.

Thank YOU! I remember this shiat from when I was underage at a bar in downtown Gainsville. It was on top of a roof covered in an awning/tent type of thing. This beer was $0.25 a CAN at a "bar". It was the WORST beer I have ever had in my life. It tasted like watered-down budlight and can.

Heh. I remember Rhinelander in the returnable longneck bottles, about 30 years ago. For an Extra Cheap™ beer, I actually liked it; I'd take it over any Budweiser any day.

No Old Style??! Would have won the taste test over PBR, easy. And the label design is classic. Thanks for sticking with it, Heileman.

Rolling Rock isn't nearly cheap enough to excuse its crappiness.  But it does have a beautiful bottle.

Point Lager is actually pretty good for the price, not sure how widely they distribute it outside of the upper Midwest though.

No Shiner, no win.

As for Rolling Rock, they should just go ahead and replace the pony with a skunk.

Yeah, but Shiner isn't exactly bottom shelf.  Lone Star is often less expensive than anything near it - and you still get bottles.  The cans cost even less.

Beast and Beast Ice were staples at college, though I went with better beer whenever I was paying for it myself.

BURGER Beer was my favorite.   We used to be able to get it here in Michigan but I think it has since retreated back to Ohio.

Is Ballantine still a thing? That was my favorite old-fart beer.

Thanks, peewinkle, for the image. I tried, but....
Back in the 70s, my brother once got laughed out of the smoking section for calling Grain Belt "head rush beer". Not csb.

/ is Grain Belt still a thing?
