Cheapest 30packs of beer in Boston area?

Any suggestions? I usually buy Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Light, or PBR. At my local Shaws/Star Market the Bud/Coors/Millers are 21.99-22.99 per 30pk cans, pbr is usually 16.99-17.99 for the same. I haven't seen it cheaper anywhere else, but I also don't know where to look.

Has anyone seen these for significantly cheaper anywhere?

      Hurley's is such an appropriate name for a place with rock bottom beer prices.

        Stopped by there tonight, PBR 30pack was $19.49- No dice.

        1. Costco or BJ's? I have been programmed over the years to not notice those brands, so I'm not sure of the prices they have on macrolager - but they usually have good deals on beer.

          1. Sav Mor Spirits usually has great prices.

              Sav Mor has Bud/Coors/Miller for $22/30pk, PBR at $18/30pk, which is more the Blanchards across the board:

              Foodmaster is the same as Blanchards when its on sale (eg, $20/30pk of Coors or Miller):

            2. At $20 for 30 cans you can probably get one of Trader Joe's store brand beers (forget what it's called). They've been selling them for really cheap and it tastes a lot better than those beers you mentioned.

                I think TJ's stuff is at least $5/6pk, if I recall. Do they sell 30pk-ish quantities? If they don't, there's no way you'll beat the pricing on Bud/Miller/Coors, let alone PBR.

                  I am fairly sure they were selling their new store brand canned beer for $4/6 a month ago or so. Maybe it was a promotion since the product was new. Not PBR/hilife cheap but competitive with "premium" crap beer.
