    I will be 'boring' and discuss my best bang for the buck beer: Yuengling Lord Chesterfield (aka Chetty):

    I can buy a 12-pack for around $12. A dollar a beer = bang!

    Normal priced bang for buck- Firestone Walker Mind Haze, 9.99 for a six pack

    Recent sale? Two Roads Juicy pack, 6 16 ounce cans at Costco for 6.99.

    All time? My local Wal Mart had a pricing error on Blue Mountain Full Nelson. 1.98 a six pack for a couple months. I bought probably a dozen six packs

    I found some TenFIDY in a discount cart marked down to $4/4-pack. That's a helluva bang for a literal buck (plus tax and deposit, of course).

    And, yes, I bought them out.

    That's a great beer I have not had in a long time. I need to get it again.

    8.99 for 6 of the big boys. Well worth it if you live in New England

    Miller High Life averages around $7-$8 a six pack.

    Most of the big craft / "craft" breweries still have $10 six pack on average. Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, Bell's, New Belgium, Stone, Cigar City, etc. As long as I can find decent IPAs for $10, I'm content with it.

    Probably going to catch some contempt for it, but going bargain I love a Fosters Lager ~ $1.67/25oz can, or 3 for $5

    Outside of that Moosehead Lager is my next go-to for $6/4pk

    Well, those are brewed by Genesee in Rochester, NY. Genesee's parent company, FIFCO USA, owns the US trademark rights of AB-InBev's Labatt brand and the US import rights of Canadian-brewed (by Molson) Labatt brands.
    As noted above/right (from the TTB) FIFCO USA still uses the "High Falls" legal name for some beers brewed at Genesee in Rochester, a name created after longtime Genesee owners, the Wiehl family, sold the company in 2000.

    30 pk cube of Stroh's 12 oz cans for $22

    Lag IPA and Columbus IPA for $8.99 a six

    PBR 6 pk of 16 oz tallboys for $6.99

    I also enjoy the occasional "off season" deal from locals like Thirsty Dog - bought a case / 24 of 12 Dogs of XMas last Feb for $10, and Lemon Shandy cans in the fall (case of 24) also for $10

    I am a cheap retired old bastard on a fixed (SS) income, what can I do?

    For the last year or so it’s been New Trail’s Double Broken Heels in 19.2 oz cans for ~$2.69.

    Yeah this one is a great go-to. I wasn’t sure where to ask this question but figure here is good a place as any, for a relatively new brewery how has New Trail found a way into the front cooler sections in stores for these 19.2oz cans that usually is reserved for the larger volume brewers with macro ownership ties? I read the backstory on the brewer but wondering if they have a big investor with ties/influence somehow?

    Guinness Stout for $7.99 a 6pk at TW.. Or if I want less bang for my buck I can get it on tap for $8 a pop at the nearby Guinness Open Gate Brewery
