    Cheap Beer Consumption (in cans)


    In the last 6 months which brand of cheap-arsed swill out of a can have you choked down the most of? I say out of a can because here we combine cheapness on two levels: cans and swill. I wonder if I should maybe change it to read what warm/tepid cheap beer have you drank out of a can.....nah, just cheap beer out of a can is good enough.

    Oh yeah, and take note...you will see I listed all 20 brands of beer that come in a can. It's a good thing there are no other brands available anywhere on earth or I wouldn't have had room to put them on this extremely important poll.

    That's a pretty good list- but you are missing my favorite - which actually is not all that cheap because its technically an import here in the states but whenever up north its Kokanee Time!

    I voted other, since I haven't had any of the above. I only drink corona or stouts (not too picky on the brand of stouts, although I like guinness best). I may have had a sip of my hubby's MGD or Canadian, but I don't really count that.

    Stroh's used to be my favorite, I've switched to fancy unleaded versions like St Paulie Girl NA or Hakke Beck. I drink a lot less, enjoy the flavor more, and never have to worry about drunk driving.

    Oh I drink beer in cans all the time... glass bottles are too expensive for my budget
    I voted for Budweiser and other, since other stands for all the Chilean brands I've drank and are of course not listed. Still, the Chilean beers I've drank are way better than that carbonated water with a taste resembling to beer that you guys call Budweiser.

    You limited your poll to the last six months, so that would leave NONE here. But your picture of Carling Black Label brings back a lot of foggy memories from the late 1980's. I think it was $0.99 per six pack back then.

    Other. Wasatch St. Paulie Girl. Also: Heineken and Guiness. Cans (or red plastic cups) are a must for any sort of outdoor activity other than bbq. Nothing worse than having a bottle break at the campsite, in the hot tub, etc.

    I had 3 cans of Killian's at a Pistons game last month. Other than that, cans are wrong.

    Cans are good

    Coors Lt. for new year's eve.
    Keystone at my parents for Christmas.
    Natty light at parents for Christmas.
    Bud light at home.
    Bud select at home.
    Had regular Bud on a fishin trip in the fall.
    Had KEG beer at a halloween party, and it was GOOOD.

    Camping beer in a can - CAMO 24, also Steel Reserve 211, will put hair on your chest.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Boycotting Coors due to radical right-wing beliefs and historical discriminatory practices of the Coors family.

    You need to add Rheingold, a $2-3 per six pack retro beer from upstate New York and Yuengling, a "fine" brew from the dying milltowns of PA. I checked Bud Light, Miller Lite and Michelob. The last two were the only things available in a cooler at a recent cookout.

    You would not be a swamp yankee New Englander if you did not have a fine case of Narragensett Beer in the fridge. Actually, do they make Narry anymore?

    Just Saturday I downed a couple of Miller Genuine Draft cans while working around the house. Also had a 30 pack cube of Pabst that lasted from October to December. All of these cans are leftover from sporting events. Otherwise I usually drink from bottles.

    I have also had Lienenkugels, Bitburger, and Schlitz from a can within the past few months.

    I would add Foster's Lager, Foster's Bitter and Heiniken to the list of canned beer I've swigged in the past 6 months. LAW-Ree is a Miller Lite gal, so I've had a few of them lately. OK..... so I've had more than a few, but who's counting?

    Cans? We don't need no stinking cans!


    But I think I may had had part of Fosters out of a can several years ago. Ugh. Awful beer.


    OTOH, the refernces to Rheingold reminds me of the jingle I used to hear all the time:

    My beer is Rheingold, the dry beer!
    Think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer!
    It's not bitter, not sweet! It's the dry-flavored treat!
    Won't you try extra dry Rheingold beer?

    I have drunk one Young's Double Chocolate Stout in the last 6 months. What is this cheap beer you speak of?

    We have Budweiser, and also we have our own water-ish beers. None of them quite decent, but we also have good beers, and of course the best ones are way too expensive for me... when I'm in Santiago... here in Valdivia I'm not the one that pays for them

    Last beer I had out of a can was probably a moosehead over the holidays, I think.

    I find it odd, that cans = cheap, up here they are more expensive, but then again you do get more beer in one.

    I remember going to detroit in university(1991) and buying 50 cases of meister brau for 4.99 a 24, then smuggling them home with the excuse that we went to get baseball tickets.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    Oh my god, Narragansett..... I was permanently traumatized by that beer back at a concert I went to somewhere around Providence in '82. Man, was I wrecked. I was literally getting up off my hands and knees after barfing on the floor and as soon as I look up this guy in a big giraffe costume (which I later learned was the "WAAF giraffe") descends on me and says "here, have a beer" and tries to foist a Narragansett on me!

    I hit the ground again and continued my purge instead. I haven't been altogether right ever since.
