    Stone Russian Imperial Stout at $7.99 for a bomber, and Founders Breakfast Stout at $8.99 a four pack are my choices here.

    Ipswich Oatmeal Stout, can't beat it for the price in my opinion.

    Again i'm envious... Mayfolwer is superb and i had no idea what a 6pk. went for (assuming thats what you meant was under 10$). One of those top notch beers not readily available where i live.... i need to move!

    Drifter Pale Ale $6.99 a six pack. Best beer you can buy for this price

    Yeah, I edited it, it's per six pack. That beer blew my mind. For people that think there's no flavor in beers less than 6% abv I point to this quickly.

    I'd be happy to send you some Mayflower Porter for Bell's Hopslam, which is the only beer I am eyeing these days. Unfortunately, I fear Hopslam doesn't come to your area....

    Jai Alai for just under $40 a case. Sure it's even cheaper in Florida. Best price-to-quality ratio I'm aware of for an IPA.

    This of course depends on where you are, but even still, if 10 cents a can makes or breaks you what beer to buy should be the least of your worries.

    On topic I got a mixed variety case of Bells offerings for 38 bucks. You can probably find it cheaper but you get a porter, amber, pale, and a brown ale. Under 10 bucks a six pack and every one is delicious

    Damn 28 bucks a case? Even the local pales are 32 man I hate living in PA...

    Only cheap beer is the old s**t

    Spaten Optimator at $9/sixer.
    Weihenstephaner Pilsner at the same price. Heck, Weihenstephaner anything, really...
    Rodenbach Grand Cru.
    All Schlenkerla beers are about $10 of awesomeness in a $5 bottle.

    Make your own , little expensive getting started , but build an all grain ghetto set up , not the expensive pre built kits , save all your craft bottles and get to brewing , I can make right at 2 cases of beer for around 17.00 at about 6.5 to 7% and oh so good , well most of it , the bad stuff you can give to your friends and tell them how good it is

    Do you get Smuttynose? Finest Kind IPA is a great choice on the cheaper end in addition to the Sierra Nevada options. Long Trail and Sam Adamds are good choices, and maybe some Harpoon beers? Rich & Dan's Rye is pretty solid, as is their Munich Dark.

    Just bought 2 sixers of Gonzo Imperial Porter at $8.99/each here in SEPA.
    $1.50/bottle, but factor in the 9.2%abv :eek:
    Went back 2 days later and the other sixers were gone.

    $1.35 a bottle? Newcastle. It's not GREAT, or "craft", but it's not bad out of a 12 box. I avoid the six packs. The clear bottles combined with an open top six pack carrier often leads to light struck (skunky) beer.

    Flower power. Also a surprise find tonight. Usually you cant get it here in cleveland. Browsing the local bottle shop and stumbled upon it. First time i had it and it definitely lived up to the hype. 9.99 for a six.

    Where do you get fbs at that price? Here in cleveland its 12 bucks for a 4pack. Our taxes suck.
