    Well with the economic slow down I am cutting my beer budget by 50% :( Well now I am missing the warm fuzzy feeling that to many beers bring. I have been enjoying micro brews for a good many years, but I tried a 6 pack of Milwaukee ice and it wasn't all that bad :eek: This lead me to remember a beer I drank when I was young and broke, Old English 800 man that was some nasty swill.
    I don't care for the lighter beers **** Miller, Bud, Coors ect...so I wondering if any of you are on the same quest ?

    Can't do the PBR, never have been able to. Bought an OE 800 a couple of months ago when I was feeling nostalgic, didn't taste as bad as I remembered. Lately I've been sticking with the Tecate, but Natty Ice was the go-to beer when I was in college. I still buy the micro's on weekends.

    PBR tastes like Coors Light with rusty nuts and bolts dropped in it.

    Next sip, think about it..........you'll taste it.

    I told that to a 65year old man that had been drinking it his whole life. He took one sip after I told him that and never bought it again.

    Hmm, I'll try this next PBR I have. Though I promise, it won't be my last! Not sure anything could ruin my taste for the Blue Ribbon!

    Vote PBR here. Great beer at a great price!

    I normally don't drink High Life, but it does taste good on a hot summer day down by the river.

    Must be ICE COLD though.

    In these economic times a brew kit and reloading equipment may be the best options. Sorry I too love micros, but can't think of a cheap beer that tastes good.

    I'll shoot wolf .223, but can't bring myself to drink PBR!

    I will not swith no matter the cost as with guns or bullets. Some things in life are better left untouched and unchanged. I am a Corona and St. Paulie Girl guy plus my Turkey and JD on the side with a nice Cuban Cohiba. But I am thinking of getting that little Heiniken keg in that thing that looks like a coffee pot. I might be able to taste some of that this month for my B-day. Well shall see.

    Cheers,

    Scott

    Good choices, all, but only Pabst was selected as America's best in 1893!

    Me too, and I have had too many to count of many different beers from many countries.

    A close second is Carlsberg Elephant beer from Denmark, and third, Smithwick's from Ireland.

    Us PBR'ers are not a lot of unwashed pikers! We just know what's good! :thumbup:

    (Yes that's pikers, not bikers)
