Genesee Cream Ale!! I had forgotten all about that stuff. My FIL would keep that around and sometimes something called Wiedemann - in little glass bottles.

I liked the Genesee, but the Wiedemann tasted a lot like water, as i remember.

The first time I met my future in-laws, I was served Wiedemann. We were sitting outside - in Maine. A sweat bee (or so they told me later) was apparently enjoying the taste and stung me on the lips when i took my next swallow. My lip swelled up something awful. I was making a great impression as a potential DIL- a beer swilling girl from Arkansas with a huge lip.

genesee beer tasted like water the cream ale was very different tasting.

i've never been much of a drinker but when i did i liked Genesee Cream Ale in cans. now this is what i got used to drinking and when i had it in bottles once i disliked the taste! i would never prefer any beverage in cans as the metal imparts a flavor to the liquid but in this case it was what i got used to and preferred genny in cans.

recently i heard that rheingold started to sell beer again here. i got a 12 pack, they only come in cans here, for $8 and change. that's cheap beer! it was pretty darned good and reminded me of the early 60's when i was able to weasel about 2 oz of beer from my father who seldom drank. too bad it wasn't in the old cans that required a church key to open and were made of heavy metal not aluminum. ah the good ole daze.

Yeungling Black & Tan.

Back in the 70s I could get a 6-pack of something called Brown Derby on sale at Safeway for 88 cents -- a six-pack! No typo.
Worst hangover ever.

Normally stick to the lights in the interest of keeping the ol figure pretty,and in that category I like Mich Ultra and even Busch Light (hey I'm in the Qzarks.) However, during better times, I try to finagle a load of Kona Long Board Ale. In a pinch, Land Shark will do also.

Drank a bunch of Little Kings and MHL 7 ouncers back in the day.

For "lite" drinking, usually Bud Lite, though it really ain't all that "cheap".

Yeungling Lord Chesterfield Ale for me. I thought I did good getting it for 3.49 a six pack on sale a few months ago, just finished the case I bought. Now finishing up a six pack of Key West Sunset Ale, picked that up on sale for 3.99 a six pack. The Class VI store (Beer/Alcohol Store) at Patrick Airforce Base has pretty good sales once a month or so.

Woodford Reserve is currently my favorite bourbon; but, in keeping with the cheap theme of this thread: Ten High is a great bourbon for mixing in my opinion; and, I haven't found many cheap whiskeys that I like.

Bud Light in a 30 pack is a staple in my house. I also home brew (but not as much as I would like to). A friend's staple is Schlitz - I like Schlitz as well - just never see it or think to look for it when shopping for beer.

When it comes down to it I tend to buy whatever is on sale and is decent.

I like this one and I believe it's 6% too!

It says on the can that it's brewed by Minhas Craft Brewery, Monroe, WI.

My SO saw me get the can out of the fridge to check the brewery and said "It's a bit early for that isn't it?"

Like I'd really be drinking at 9:30am...........

Beer is one of the few things I can drink without puking, but I seem to drink only cheap: Michelob, Corona, Heiniken, Sam Adams, Blue Moon, etc.

My favorite is a cold Corona with limes or lemons (and plenty of 'em).

Bud gives me a tremendous headache as does Shiner (a Texas brand), and I'm talking about only one beer--which is all I can handle anyway of any type.

I enjoy beer very much and am lucky to live here in the Northwest which is blessed with a ton of micro breweries. My current favorite is Manny's Pale Ale by Georgetown Brewery here in Seattle, but it is only available on draft (which is frankly how I drink the vast majority of beer I drink).

However if I drink a bottle beer I enjoy Redhook ESB which I currently have in my garage fridge right now.

But if I am going to drink a cheap beer when I am out and about - it would be Bud. Especially if I am listening to the blues. Earlier in my life when I lived in DC, I used to go listen to the blues at a local blues club that only served Budweiser, so I have this association in my head of Bud and Blues. It just doesn't seem right to listen to the blues drinking anything else.

Given the number of Canadians here, probably yes.
