    Labatt Blue. Surprised not to have seen this one yet. Canadian water as we used to call it. Very affordable for a college kid in Michigan, and tastier than the average cheap swill.

    Sierra Nevadas' Torpedo when it's warm out, probably Victorys' Storm King in the winter months. I may trade Torpedo out for Zombie Dust or Ruination if I could afford it :(

    Torpedo, Jai alai, and Yeti.

    Pretty sure I've over doubled my weight in High Life/Bud Light/Natty dating back a few years before I got into craft.

    Yeah, definitely the younger early days saw the quantity being over the top I'd have to say Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold, Molson Golden & then Molson Canadian fir the bill here. These days I hardly drink these, not that I would say no...I'm either buying high craft or sessionable, old man, lawnmower, polish patio type stuff ala Genesee Cream, Pabst, or Black Label.

    Double checked and verified...water weighs 8.331 pounds per gallon, and a gallon is 128 fluid ounces. Beer would be slightly north of 8.3 pounds a gallon depending on the final gravity, so lets say 8.4 divide by 128 times 12 times six...so that all comes out to 4.7 pounds a six pack.

    That 4.5 pounds a six pack is close enough for government work! Not being a dick here...I work with this kind of stuff all day. Hard habit to break.

    Oh...and consider this was 35 years ago so gimme a break...Miller High Life for me. That is when quantity mattered more than quality....
