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

Hi fellow Texan and DFWer at that.  I wonder if anyone knows just how bad Lone Star beer is.  I'm sure that you have gone a few rounds with that beer.

i agree with you , $10.99 to $11.99 a 30 pack is cheap beer in my opinion, and in this realm, i consider miller high life the winner. new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Howdy Neighbor!

Actually one round with Lone Star was enough for me!!  I'm not sure I would even include that swill as beer, much less cheap beer!  trink38.gif  wacko.gif

The only thing I consider more embarrassing as a Texan than Lone Star beer is that Connecticut born, Yale "educated", pseudo christian enemy of the constitution that currently defiles our executive office. wtf.gif

No such thing as cheap beer for me these days!  Only if it's all that's available! (for some reason Coors Light is still popular  062802puke_prv.gif )

GOD!  We used to drink Red White and Blue like CRAZY back when we had no money! (circa 1979-1983) It was like $8.99 for TWO cases of pounders!

There was also some beer called Robin Hood Cream Ale that was TASTY but you had to drink twice-three times as much to get wasted! (cheap too!)

Once we got a little cash, we would buy Genesee 12 Horse Ale which was like a cheap IMPORT tasting beer!   BUT RWB was the staple! trink39.gif

Whoops...almost forgot National BO (short for Bohemian)  had a buddy from Baltimore that SWORE by it (another buck two-eighty a case beer)  In fact, when we saw the Boys there in 86 they were serving it at the Civic Center!

I don't drink cheap beer anymore, but back in the day, it was Southpaw Light when the fundage was low - not too bad tasting, and less than 10 bucks a case  trink39.gif

The only shit beer I can mildly enjoy is Coors Light. It doesn't taste like shit; it tastes like nothing at all. It's water that gets you drunk.
