    When I still played ice hockey on an adult league up north, we had a dude that would sing that every time he carried the puck. Funniest stuff ever...little guy flying up ice, skating circles around everyone singing "beer run!" At top,of his lungs.

    Unfortunately, you can only get it from the walmart in fayetteville around here. My wife picks it up for me, but I wouldn't want to go to walmart...
    i've gone back to drinking high life, which is sweeter, cheaper, and all around less good. Lately i've been drinking a good beer or two, and following up with highlife once i care less.

    Where did you find the Iron City? My mom's husband is from Pittsburgh. He brings back a couple cases when he goes home.

    My grandad was a professional beerist. Man ran on beer. Ironic what finally got him was lung/heart issues from secondhand smoke (grandma), not a pickled liver.

    Anyway...when he'd visit my place, he'd always give me crap about my "fancy beer." This thread is damn near a memorial to his favorite beers: Bud Natural Ice, Old Milwaukee, Busch, etc. Piss water! Id have Sam Adams, Highland Brewing, and some other good beers when he'd show up. He'd nurse one of them all through the evening and dinner. Don't know if it was the "richer" taste or what.

    Rolling Rock is my everyday go to.

    For a whole lot of years it was Bud Light, and/or Budweiser.

    Before I was buying Beast was a staple at gatherings.

    Yes I do remember.
    How about Billy beer? A six pack of that would probably bring enough to pay off my mortgage.

    I'll take Hamm's or PBR for lawnmower beer over any of the A-B, Miller, or Coors products. I keep some of both in the crisper drawers of the garage fridge.

    Hamm's isn't easy to find around here, so I just pick up a 30-pack at Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati when we go up to visit our daughter at grad school.

    The only other beer I keep around on a regular basis is AMB Longleaf.

    PBR is my go-to cheap beer. Its the only cheap beer that actually tastes like beer to me.

    If I'm spending a little more, I drink Blue Moon.

    Most of the time I drink IPA's. Goose Island, Hoppium, and Ranger IPA are my current favorites.

    Nope. Drinking beer in 1965 is old. Ask me how I know.

    Amber: Killians, Sam Adams
    Dark: Big Boss Bad Penny, High Wire Bed of Nails

    The amber ones have a nice edge to them, and the dark ones are hearty without being too stout w/too much coffee taste.

    Those are all cheap relative to the crowd I hang out with that are into all the foofoo beers.

    Can't stand Guinness BTW, as a point of reference. ;)

    I don't drink much at this stage of my life, but when I was a drinker, I bought whatever was on sale at the local grocery store.

    Cheap beer. You know what America beer and sex in a canoe have in common?



    They are both f&@king close to water.
