Me – You know what I love? Going into the grocery store and grabbing a cheap six pack of beer. Nothing is better than getting good beer and a discounted price. To join me in discussing this matter is my friend Jack Crosby (his blog – http://grimmsreapers.blogspot.com).
Jack – I couldn’t agree more. Being on the road a lot with limited funds, I try to always get a six pack that’s local to the city I’m in, but I try to keep the price below $7.99.
Me – I think the $7.99 rule is a good one. If you can find a good beer at or below that price, you’ve done good son.
Jack – What would you recommend to anyone?
Me – If you haven’t tried it yet, I really like Rolling Rock. It might have to do with it being a PA beer.
Jack – What a homer pick, but being from Jersey, I agree as well. Rolling Rock is smooth, crisp, and has a nice aftertaste.
Me – It’s that being brewed in a glass lined tanks. They do it right. Something the parent company Busch could learn from.
Jack – Do you remember Red Dog? That was the stuff back in the day.
Me – I don’t know if it’s still brewed, but man that stuff was cheap and good. It was like the perfect poor college kid drink.
Jack – Oh yeah, Red Dog > Pabst which is still alive and kicking.
Me – There was a bar beside me in college that sold Pabst by the barrel full. It took at least 5 people to empty that.
Jack – We would be remiss from stating Jeff’s (the other dude – http://jefftrelbooks.wordpress.com) favorite cheap beer: Bud Light.
Me – That’s an easy pick. Though, I think they’ve gotten a bit pricey for what you’re getting. $7.99 for Bud Light or $5.99 for Rolling Rock…
Jack – Rolling Rock everyday of the week, but they might not be everywhere either.
Me – I had a beer once called Polar, bought it at a drug store of all places. That stuff was surprisingly good.
Jack – Polar? Never heard of it, but I like to throw a shout out to Moose Head and the best slogan of all time: a beer in Canada and a misdemeanor in Minnesota.
Me – That is fantastic! With a slogan like that, I bet they are incredibly popular close to the border.
Jack – I can get in in Chicago, so I’m sure.
Me – Thoughts of the champagne of beers?
Jack – The High Life? No thank you. I rate that down there with Natty Light. If we’re going super cheap, I’ll take Ice House for $200 Alex.
Me – Ice House… yes!!! I got a six pack for $3.99 the other day at Target. Just as good as it was in college.
Jack – We sound like alkies, you know that right?
Me – It’s cool. People come to my blog for useless info.
Jack – In that case, I hope we led them in the right direction for their cheap beer needs.
Me – I think we have. Thanks for stopping by.
Jack – Anytime, now it’s back to work on my next book. Can’t hold off on it any longer.
Me – Later Jack and have a good day readers.
