    What do you feel is the best beer for the best price? The best bang for the buck

    Maybe for me:
    -6pack SN Torpedo $6.99
    -6pack heavy seas loose cannon $7.99
  2. 12 packs of Torpedo.
  3. bombers of hop stoopid for 3.50
  4. mocktm

    mocktm Savant (440) Virginia Jan 3, 2011 Beer Trader

    Lagunitas Lil Sumpin'
    Blue Point Hoptical Illusion

    Both will only set you back about $10 a sixer.

    Lagunitas bombers are a good bargain IMO.

    Ruination 10th Anniversary was a seriously awesome bargain @ 7.50 per bomber.

    Sam Adams New "Series" Brews. Bombers for $4.99 & $5.99

  9. Sweetwater IPA (cheep and awesome IPA). If I have to buy sixers, its always Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald or Duck Rabbit Hoppy Bunny. Ill usually resort to something from the Midwest (Thirsty Dog or Great Lakes). Two-Hearted isnt out of the question.

    Great Lakes is a $10 sixer.

    Sounds cray, but with all of the $7 to $10 growlers I see, Dogfish Head 60 minutes at $9 or $10 a six is a screaming deal
  12. i just spread em out, which makes them a better value. I would rather have Edmund Fitzgerald for 10-14 days than Eddy Fitz for 6 days.

    I would have to agree with the OP, SN Torpedo is a phenominal deal. I love that stuff

    Westvleteren 12 at the monastery. ~4.00 euro per bottle. :)
    More locally, Alaskan Amber sixers run about $7.99 or less in most bargain places in the four corners states in my experience.

    Agreeing with a bunch of people here with Torpedo. Cannot find a better priced IPA with such a powerful distribution. Any gas station or liquor store around here has it!

    I stated in another thread that the are no bargains when it comes to beer, but the best deals I can think of are $8-9 six packs of Prima Pils and Great Lakes flagship beers. I also buy some Bud Lite Lime for 1.49/24 oz can... not going to lie.

    It's a good price, but the weekends in Chicago that accompany stops in Munster can break me.

    Otherwise I agree with everyone who mentioned six packs from Great Lakes.

    I was gonna say 12-packs of SNPA... I haven't seen any 12-packs of Torpedo! I'd grab one of those pretty often.
  25. Kinsman

    6-pack of Genny Cream pounders for $3.99
  26. Zyweic Porter - $1.79/16.9 oz bottle

    Stone IPA @ Costco for $28. My new go-to might be Green Flash 30th Street Pale Ale. Cases at the brewery are $32.

  29. Considering a 12er of Torpedo is $14 around here compared to say a sixer of Union Jack for $13 or Founder's Centennial for $15/sixer, I do drink my share of Torpedo though I prefer the others.

    Ballantine XXX Ale - $5 for a 6'er of 16oz cans...

  31. 12 pack of Finest Kind for $13.99
    6 pack of Ipswich Oatmeal Stout for $7.49
  32. Where are you finding the Ipswich at that price?

  35. You can get Zyweic Porter!? I've looked everywhere for that---haven't seen any in a couple of years---or Okocim Porter either. Makes me weep when I think about it.
