If you are in Wisconsin the correct answer is almost always any 6-pack New Glarus beer
Thought it might be, but didn't realize they still had it that low. They did have Victory mix 12 packs for 10.99 last week though so not too surprising.
SN Torpedo for me. I'm looking forward to their new Beer Camp release.
Pretty much anything from Oskar Blues. Dales Pale ale being the first coming to mind.
FW Pale 31.
Yeah, them and Stone. $7 a pop here in PA for RIS with its ABV is a pretty good deal IMO (wow, that was a lot of abbreviating)
no question lagunitas was the first thing that came to my mind. quality of the beer for what you're paying? tough to beat.
My cheap go-to:
Real Ale Pale Ale, on sale sometimes for $6-7. Or Trader Joe's Mission St. Pale Ale, $6 for a sixer. Wish they'd keep it cold.
Rack of 20 .5 Liter Monchambacher Lagerbier for 12 Euros.
New Glarus six packs - $7.99
Hop Stoopid bombers - $3.99-$4.49
The best Baltic Porter...Zywiec Porter at $2.19/0.5L, NYC's best kept secret.
Pike XXX Stout - 4.99 bombers
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Sierra Nevada Torpedo
All are $9.99 a sixer. And SN is sometimes on special in the supermarket @ $15.99 a 12 pack.
Ever since I officially designated beer as my hobby, I've been more vigilant in seeking out the best prices for stocking up. If I see something I like for a good price, I'll buy it regardless of whether I'm specifically looking for it that day. And of course, I check dates when something gets reduced. More often than I care to admit the reason the price is reduced is because it's near or past the "good by" date.
I have a couple. I can usually get any SN sixer for $7.99, Hop Czar is $6.99 and if I need a case, I go for Full Sail Session. 12 11oz bottles for $9.99.
Torpedo. There is no beer, in my opinion, that has a wider gap between quality and price.
Here in Charlotte, we'll sometimes see Sierra Nevada 12-packs for $12.99. I'll have to agree with Torpedo. I drink a lot of it, and also had a lot of Ruthless Rye earlier this year. When winter comes around, Celebration will work its way into the rotation.
12 packs of Torpedo are a mainstay at $13.99. As are 6'ers of Santa Fe Brewing's Imperial Java Stout at $6.99.
Amstel Bok. Usually under 50 euro cents for 30 cl.
Anything in a 6pack from New Glarus. Usually $7-8 and that's a hell of a price for spotted cow, moon man, or when it's in season Hop hearty
Edit: Spoonhawk knows whats good didn't read the other posts before posting
Narragansett Summer Ale - $7.50 for a six-pack of tallboys.
case of sly fox cans of pils, lager, weisse or pale ale for $22.
Sly Fox is a great cheap option. Even their Tripel sells for 30-40% less than comparable quality Tripels.
for me it's Deschuttes
for some reason, while all the shops sell it for 8,9,10 bucks, the really expensive liquor store right on my block has always had them for 5.99 for sixers. So that's been me.
Going away to the family cottage this week so I'm packing inexpensive beer to drink on the lake. Stocking up on canned SNPA and PBR.
Close outs at Bell Beverage in S.Philly is always a safe bet.Just gotta case of Fort Collins KIDD Lager for 20 bux, pretty tasty.
Believe it or not... PBR tall boys at $4.99/6! It's really not half bad as far as really shitty beer goes... Zyweic Porter and Boss Porter @ $2.49/bottle... Brooklyn BCS and Monster @ $7.99/4-pack... Can't do better than that!!!
Columbus IPA, 8-9 a six pack. When it's is season, SN Celebration 12 packs.
Saranac Pale Ale - fabulous value
They sell Stone at your Costco! Costco suprises me sometimes with what they have to offer. We get Two Brothers at my local Costco. 23.99 a case which is a steal.
My go-to has to be Yuengling. Living in the Tampa area, you can get 24 packs for as low as $16.99. You can't beat that price point for the quality (even if it is Macro-ish). I agree with Lagunitas bombers and also a great bargain in Tampa is Cigar City's Maduro Brown. I regularly see sixers for $6.99-7.99.
Bargain for a craft? My all around favorite beer, Arrogant Bastard, $4.99 a bomber. My local Wine World had Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen for $1.79, but they ran out. Beach beer bargain? PBR pounder 4pk, $2.99.
5 gallon keg of Hill Farmstead Edward for $90
Trader Joes Mission St beers... $5/sixer.
why did i think you guys only drank good beers?
Now I know why the Torpedo 12-pack shelf is empty half the time! Bastards!
$15.99 here in Austin... goes down to $12.99 at least once a month. 6-ers can be $7.99 or $6.99 on sale.
Hell, even Target has Torpedo!
If I don't get Torpedo, St. Arnold 6-packs are usually $6.99-$7.99. Good stuff there.
They have Stone at Costco @ $28 for a case? Shit. I'm gonna have to see if Sam's Club has a similar deal.
I drink all beer. Sometimes it's a $25 bottle of Brooklyn Black Ops that's been gracefully aged. Sometimes it's a $5 6-pack of Lone Star tall-boys. I'm a beer omnivore.
i actually do too.. beer is just beer sometimes.. other times it's more than beer.
Lately - $13 -$15 mixed 12 packs of Widmer. 9 bottles of Rotator IPA, drifter pale ale, and citra summer is worth the price alone - the hefeweizen is a good thirst quencher with a little slice of lemon (or throwaway beer to give to the wife or guests). Sub $9 six packs too (which is rare for craft beer in my area).
You can usually find some store in the area running a $13 Sierra Nevada 12 pack special - and $15 regular price isn't bad either.
Victory 12 packs have been on sale at my local store this summer for about $14. A great deal - especially if you like Golden Monkey (I just suck them back for the buzz).
Ipswich Oatmeal Stout - still can find some stores selling six packs for $9 or less.
For summer time lager drinking - St. Pauli girl for about $12 /12 pack or Pilsner Urquell for a couple bucks more - depends on which is fresher.
And Helios is still a bargain...
Yep, except they at $7 in OH. That or 6 packs of Genny Ice tallboys for $3.49 + tax. For that price it's a crime not to buy them.
