    Default Beer. Shit Beer.

    It's hot.

    You're thirsty.

    You're nearly broke or "on a budget."

    You do what you gotta do.

    I spent the early part of this week drowning my "Red Sox suck" sorrows with this piss behind enemy lines.

    Anyone have Hammer? You can get a case of 18 for el-cheapo at Fresh and Easy. The taste? Kinda sweet and cheap. Don't know if I can recommend it.

    I picked up a sixer of Bud Platinum this week just because it screams 6% ABV, was on sale, and it's "low calorie". The only problem is it tastes like absolute crap. Even worse than regular Bud. I even got one close to freezing and then tried chugging it. Sheesh. Doesn't anyone taste test this stuff before putting it on the market? Ya know, focus groups, etc?

    I also got my hands on one of those pop-top Miller Lite cans. Now that is a great idea! It allows you to cannonball that sucker before you can realize the horror you've just committed.

    They have 30 packs of Hammer at my Local Fresh and Easy for $15. I haven't tried it yet. PS-I fucking love Fresh and Easy.

    Anyone ever try this? They used to sell it at a super market close to home back in the day but haven't seen it in years... I never did try it.
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    While in Spain i drank loads of cheap lagers that were quite drinkable.

    You can't walk 10 feet in Madrid without passing a Cervesaria whose one beer on tap is either Mahou or Estrella. Typically you can get a half-liter of either for 2 euro or less in any neighborhood bar, or at the store you pay like 3 euro a sixer.

    When I was in the Philippines a few weeks ago I drank two types of local beer the whole time. One being San Miguel, and the other was Red Horse, which is brewed by San Miguel. San Miguel is a decent Pilsner. Very drinkable and very cheap. Definitely has more flavor than an American Pilsner and is where it should be abv wise at 5%. But The Red Horse is 7% and tastes pretty shitty.

    We drank a shitload of San Miguel in Spain too. It was the only beer available at Primavera, as they were the main sponsor. Liters and liters of it for three days.

    You people are amateurs when it comes to drinking dirt cheap shit beer.

    Dirt cheap shit beer does not have a frou frou spanish name nor does it come imported from outside these great united states.

    Ahh no way you went to that? I saw that San Miguel was the main sponsor. Spain ruled the Philippines for long ass time so there is a ton of Spanish influence there. But San Miguel is actually a Filipino beer. Some Spanish dude moved there in the 1800's start brewing it and it's been a staple ever since.

    Well if we're talking ONLY AMERICAN shit beer then Simpler Times, Natural Light, and Pabst would have to be my go to beers. I bought a ton of this shit from age 18-22 until I discovered good beer. Now I waste a ton of money on craft beer. But it's just so damn good.

    It was also the main beer in Hong Kong when I was there in 2007, for whatever reason.

    Miller High Life is my cheap beer of choice.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Miller High Life is too expensive to qualify as cheap beer.

    I prefer craft beers but I enjoy drinking the shit out of Busch and PBR. PABST BLUE RIBBON (in my Dennis Hopper voice).

    They use so many gimmicks to sell their beer. Like the new punch a whole in the top of the can thing.

    It's actually a good idea because people will just pound it and won't taste the shittiness.

    Of the light domestic beers, it's the only one I can really stand. When it's 110 degrees outside it's difficult to drink the darker/heavier beers.

    Anybody else ever try Caguama? Ralph's here has 30-packs on sale for $10 sometimes. It's awful, but I've gone through a few racks of it.

    We used to host parties with only Caguama because it's so cheap. It tastes cheap too.

    I'll still drink PBR, Natty Light, Budweisers and Coors, but Miller Light is so disgusting. It tastes like moldy bananas.
