Cheap American Beers, Ranked

  1. Coors? Really? The stuff tastes like a can of condemned biscuit dough.

    They nailed Yuengling, though.

    1. Ranked by a Bostonian who appears in his twenties. This goes into the "so not going to forward" bin.

      Remember when cheap equaled local as the shipping costs were lower? And no Coors product east of the Mississippi River?

      1. wonder how long it took him to sample all these and the notion that Miller High Life is one of the worst beers in the world automatically makes this list a joke. its quite obviously one of the best worst beers around! and theres no beer I like better when Im not interested in a beer that would otherwise be described as good...

        and anyway by far the best "bad beer" review is at http://www.ohio.com/lifestyle/food/a-... which left me in tears more than once.

        1. He got this much right: Utica Club and Narragansett in the top 4.

          Never thought I would have a reason to travel to Minnesota.

          1. I was disappointed because there was no mention of Steel Reserve, the cheapest high of them all.

            1. I'm disappointed that Schaeffer has apparently changed its slogan. Back in the day (i.e., 40 years ago) they had the most honest tagline in the whole world of American mass-market beer: "The one beer to have, when you're having more than one."

                Always loved that. Would be even more honest if they substituted "more than one" for "more than ten". Is it still trademarked? Wonder if today's craft session beer brewers would have the guts to utilize it.

                  Schaefer encourages you to drink ten beers responsibly.

                    That made me laugh. Out loud, in point of fact. Well done.

                    1. re: monkeyrotica

                      NOBODY can drink ten cans of Steel Reserve in a row.
                      Just not possible.
