I could see Big Black Voodoo Daddy being a value - around $7 a bomber at 12.50% ABV.
6% x 4 = 24%. That stuff is closer to 18%.
But on the subject, Wild Blue
Steel Reserve...$2 for 24 ounces of sweet, boozy malt liquor. Just have to make sure you drink it fast because as it warms it gets way more harsh. You'll find it in the crappy beer ice bin at your local corner store...
my cheap go to beer is my homebrew. even at low ABVs, its cheaper than commercial.
But when I go commercial, I drink multiple Two-Hearteds and call it a day.
Double Bag is usually my go-to cheap ABV beer, but I have to strongly agree with the Steel Reserve. Tall boy cans for $1.20 at the local supermarket - no need for cheap vodka at that point.
SN Torpedo for sure. At the sale price of 13 bucks a twelve pack, the drunkness to deliciousness to dollars ratio is the best around. If I lived in an area that got Deschutes, they might be able to convince me otherwise, as I understand they tend to be fairly reasonably priced.
My choice is either Brooklyn Choc Stout or Monster Ale, both at $8 4/pk and 10%,tasty and quick buzz
A four pack of Old Rasputin is 7.99... that should do the trick.
I have to say, I just pounded a six of Narragansett cream ale... i have a nice head right now... and i am partial to scotch and bourbon.. a quart every 2 or 3 days.. so I'm no newbie to the game....
Wish I could still get Widmer KGB (W'11). Was under $12 for a 12-pack. About as cheap of a buzz as Natty Light.
Definitely with you on the Zweic Porter @derranged. I remember thinking that exact same thing the first time I bought it, that it was a great bang for your buck, but after trying it I realized it's not a bad buy in general for the money. Also, I move/travel a lot and I've noticed going the way of local beer is sometimes another good option (obviously).
Not to sound like a snob, but I don't drink cheap at all. If I can't afford the beer I want, I don't buy any.
Olde English 800
Schlitz Malt Liquor
The classic table wine. What is your particular?
I take a trip to the medicine cabinet and take a nice, hearty swig of rubbing alcohol. Yum.
(Don't actually do this)
From the land of the sky blue waters...Hamm's, baby, Hamm's.
Bigfoot Barley Wine...9.6%, $2.25 per 12 oz bottle.
If I'm going to intentionally make myself feel like shit I'd prefer to do it with something that tastes good and I enjoy.
Thank you. Who says you can't get drunk AND enjoy what you drink whilst doing it?
4pk 90 min
The cheap good stuff tends to vary from region to region. Here in MN, my go-to is Grain Belt.
Other than spirits I guess I'll settle for some Stella Artois or some other cheap beers... 6 packs of craft beer in Alberta isn't that cheap compared to a few places in USA =(
A bomber of Arrogant Bastard for $5 seems like it would be my choice. Then again I would probably go with a shot followed by a beer if I reallly wanted a buzz. Though if I really wanted a buzz i would skip the beer completely and go for spirits. Seriously the great thing about craft beer is that it's like self regulation. By the time I get through my second beer my stomach can't take anymore and if it could I wouldn't enjoy it very much. And what is the point of buying expensive beer if you're not going to enjoy it?
ZORG, 51oz plastic swing top for only a buck, 8% alc. But I don't really drink that, i step up to the 51 oz plastic swing top baltika 9 for 1.79.
I have no idea how you drink that stuff. I can't stand the idea of drain pouring because it's a complete waste no matter how bad the beer is, but I just couldn't finish this stuff. Only one I've ever poured.
For me, SN Torpedo or Bigfoot
to the guy who said zwiec porter i totally agree. it's like $2 a bottle and they sell them individually. not only does it taste good for the price it's high in abv so you get a good buzz. that reminds me to go pick up 1 or 2 i
I'd get a 6pk of some Goose or Two Bros if I wanted to feel classy while I'm binge drinking, Hams, PBR, or Dog Style if I'm not.
but don't you know that pbr is the worlds classiest beer according to hipsters. i
gansett is always a good call. $5 for a 6pack of pint cans isn't a terrible deal.
I don't believe in hipsters.
Say "LAH-GOO-KNEE-TUSS" These guys put out quality imperials and crazy strong ales 7-10% for ~$10/sixer. Love it.
Never had a drain pour. I finished a whole can of Chelada. Iron stomach.
Wild Blue is super sugary and super artificial, but imo still drinkable.
I don't drink good beer quickly and I don't drink it to get buzzed. I drink it slowly so I can taste it.
If you want a fast and cheap buzz, just do a couple of shots.
I like getting buzzed but lately never set out to do so. that said Zweic Porter is and excellent and underrated beer. I would get it more if I did not have to drive an hour for it.
I'm pretty sure you mean three as 18/3=6 *sorry, I just noticed someone already said this
But anyway....if you can stomach Natty Ice like us college kids, $14 a 30-rack is pretty damn cheap
When I say drain poured, I meant I drank 5 out of the 6 bottles that I bought and poured the sixth one...so not a complete waste.
But in regards to the Chelada, you sir are a champion.
Boilermakers do the trick for me. Latest combination I had was SN Ruthless Rye and Crown Royal.
To all the people suggesting vodka/bourbon/etc...if you're smart enough to figure out that booze can be a cheaper buzz than beer (cool discovery, we're all very proud) then you should be smart enough to read the title of this discussion. "Your favorite 'cheap quick buzz' BEERS". Not your favorite cheap quick buzz in general or else I'd have suggested a bag of heroin. I'm not trying to sound like a dick, I just think its a little obvious that popov/dickle/black velvet or other things of that nature are stronger and cheaper so its unnecessary to add more jargon to filter through for those who are actually interested in this discussion. At least the guy above me still included beer, suggesting to kick it up a notch.
