    5.99 for Smuttynose Baltic Porter

    6.99 for Port Old Viscosity

    I love both those beer and having that cheap is even better!

    Sierra Celebration...$7.49 a sixer last season (I still can't believe such a quality, drinkable beer was so cheap)
    Prima Pils...$7.99
    Weihenstephaner (original, pilsener, or hefeweizen)...all $7.99

    These are my cheap "go-to's."

    (*Prices are for northern VA).

    My avatar - Drifter Pale ale, $6.99 for a six pack of one of the best and most unique pale ales available. This and a few of the Sierra Nevada 6 packs are the best values in beer.

    PBR. Certainly got cheap going for it.

    I got Sucks for less than $10 for a sixer. Very tasty for that price point.

    Torpedo at $12 - $13 a 12 pack wins the "cheap" prize for me.

    Long Trail Double Bag... $32 / case and 7+ % ABV, the case should last a while.

    Stockyard is on point! Also the Mission St. Anniversary ale came out recently and it should still be in stores, I hope so anyway because I need to get more. $3.50/bomber you can't go wrong.

    That's easy: Zywiec Porter. I think it was $2.49 for 16 or so ounces (when I was in Brooklyn) and it's a 9.5% beer; and an awesome example of a baltic porter.

    Cheap is a relative term, but Sucks is $7.99 at my local store. Best value in the whole store, IMO.

    Even though this exact same thread pops up every 10 days or so, I still enjoy browsing just to see everyone's definition of "cheap". $6.99 for a bomber equates to a $22.87 6-pack. In my world, that's not cheap.

    Red Racer 6 packs for $16, seems like a lot but that's pretty cheap for a great IPA in Canada!

    Cheapest I've ever seen Pliny is $4.49 per 16 oz bottle. Your number does not equate
