What cheap beer is in your fridge?

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by Mediczod, Jan 13, 2013.

  1. Normally it is Schaefer or Icehouse. At the moment I have a bottle of Bud Light in the fridge which I bought even cheaper from the "breakage" aisle in my super market.

    SNPA. I drink it and some BMC people enjoy it as well. I don't see the point in wasting space in MY fridge just in case someone only drinks BMC. Noones holding craft in their fridge in case I come over......

    If I'm going to have to have any non-craft beer around, it's Coors...Silver Bullets and/or Yellow Dogs.

    One of my brothers keeps some Bud Lights in my beer fridge. He 'll have one of my crafts and the 2 of the Buds. Whatever works for him. When I have relatives over who aren 't craft fans, I try to have some Goose Island on hand for them. It's just polite.

    My cousin scored a vintage Hamm's beer "Dancing glasses" neon in premo shape so for the "big" hanging ceremony in her basement bar I drove two hours (I had other stuff to do ,trust me) to Billings,MT and scored a cube of Hamms for the event. The leftovers are in my fridge. I'm drinking a Bayern Amber right now.

    i hardly ever buy any of it, but people frequently leave PBR and Yuengling in my fridge, which typically sits there until the next time i have friends over.

  8. I always have a cheap beer in my fridge for myself. The past few months, I've been on a Genny Cream Ale kick. I have no problem handing out one or two of them, and I never hand out my more expensive beer to people.

    Jai Alai is the least expensive beer in my fridge but i'd hardly call it cheap. you can still have one if you stop by though.

    No cheap beers in my fridge, friends want a beer then they have to drink what's in there. If they don't like the selection bring your own.

  12. There are two Stella's, three bitburgers, and a corona in my fridge at the moment, all left by friends. They will be consumed by friends too, although I occasionally enjoy a bitburger.

    There is also a single fiddlehead second fiddle and a terrapin beer that was extra'd to me which I will be drinking myself sometime soon!
  13. Life is really too short to drink cheap beer :( this thread makes me sad

    I have some Miller High Life...for when you just need to marinate something or for when you can't spare the quality time to drink your quality beer. After all, it is The Champagne of Beers :)

    At the lake house currently and I've got Modelo, Corona, Blue Moon & Kona Longboard. Down in this part of the state there really isn't a good liquor store close to the house, so grab some cervezas to take out on the boat and call it good.

  20. Genny cream.
  21. Golden Road's 329 Lager... It doesn't get cheaper than gifted 6-packs. Otherwise, if I'm paying for it, then it's Swamis.
  22. you are more than welcome to keep all and any cheap beer in your own fridge. I certainly won't have any in mine.

    coors light my son goes cheap sometimes. Tried to drink one and dumped it, my tastebuds went;Are you crazy?
  37. There's always Rainier in my fridge and every now and then someone driving from the Midwest will bring me a flat of Old Style. A friend of mine also left ten or twelve cans of Miller Lite after a long night; I was able to pawn them off on the moving guys when I packed up recently/

    Usually its some sort of Summit variety 12, but during the summer i usually go with the cheaper shandy's, right now tenacious traveler, which isn't great but I like the ginger and it goes down easy
  39. Narragansett/'gansett summer are my go-to cheap beers, more for the tallboys than anything else. It's just nice getting through 12 ounces of beer and finding out that you're not done yet.
