Hey,

Those of w/ kids (and some w/o) find themselves low on cash or on a budget.  

I was just curious to see what other people drink when money is an issue.  

Sorry in advance to all those beers I left out that you all think should have been included.

If I'm low on cash, and can't afford good expensive beer, I won't buy beer.  tongue.gif

That being said, if I was forced at gunpoint to buy one of those, it would have to be Pabst Blue Ribbon! And not just because it's my avatar's favorite beer.  biggrin.gif

Iron City is drinkable. I've had those at 3 Rivers Stadium back in the day. I don't think I would drink any other one I see on this list. I'm very picky when I drink beer, which isn't very often.

Edit: Coors beer is also drinkable. It has an OK taste if it's really cold.

Busch, 'cause that's what the hubby brings home. And, if I want to drink free beer, that's what I get... for drinking free beer.

Yeah, you just like Dennis' favorite.  That was one freakin' weird movie...  Pabst is OK...

I can stomach Coors and Miller Lite but they have to be ice cold...  otherwise  062802puke_prv.gif

The rest of those are pretty much  062802puke_prv.gif  no matter how you serve 'em.

Just for laughs, Red White and Blue.  I don't think I've ever seen a cheaper beer.

This thread title is self-contradictory.  "Best" and "cheap" don't go together in the world of beer.  

Of the choices in the poll, they are all pretty much interchangeable, imo. Of the ones I have tried, anyway.  

Back in my college days, when i was into the cheapest beer i could find, my beer of choice was Olympia.  Couldn't beat it for the amount of beers for the buck.  Don't know if they still make that stuff.   Haven't seen it in years.  

Nowadays, not being a starving college student, (and having credit cards, so "low on cash" is no longer a relevant consideration) I consider quality more important than quantity.

I must protest BUD, Miller or Coors being listed as 'cheap' beers. They're more middling really. When you're talking cheap in Texas it's Pearl, Bush, Old Milwaukee, etc. When I was 16 in 1980 you could get a case of Old Milwaukee for 8 bucks. Stroh's was my favorite cheap beer when I was a kid; not bad at all.  I haven't seen Pearl or Strohs in years, not that I've looked.  Maybe I'll grab a single and see how much my taste has changed, kind of like seeing an old movie or TV show you used to like as a kid and realizing how lame they really were.

Did anyone else have drive-in  burger joints in their town that would actually bring a pitcher of beer out to your car?!!  Hard to believe now  that we were still that free in the '80s.  We still have one such drive-in in Dallas (Kellers) but they won't last too much longer.  So much for my requiem for an alcoholics dream. trink38.gif
