That would most likely depend on where you are at, considering many cheap beers can be regional. PBR and Olympia are great common cheap beers. There’s a great cheap-o from the pacific northwest called schmidt, with seasonal wild game on the can. Personally, I’ve been a fan of colt 45 these days- it seems scary being malt liquor and all but its pretty damn good

I know it gets a lot of static for being poseur /hipster but I agree—and as my grandfather once said to me—“Pabst is a good beer!”

I also like Olympia (do they still make that?)

And we also used to drink Shaefer in highschool, which I think was rejected Stroh’s (that’s saying something)

After the first 3, they’re all good

In highschool we used to drink miller highlife (crystal), keystone light (stones), natural light (fratty light), coors (bullets), PBR (cause in IL it was $2.50 a sixer)

I remember Natural Light Ice, or ‘Natty-ice’ being the beer of choice in high school.
They all go down in the beer bong pretty well

This is the opposite of the answer you’re looking for but its something I feel I need to share. Up here we’ve got very classy (plastic) 2 litre bottles of beer called Ridin’ Dirty – I’ve never brought myself to try it but I just might have to one day. I’m guessing that its horrible though.

where is “up here” i must be there. 2 litres of beer? screw 40s. TWO LITRES!!!

Natty ice was all my buddies choice, including myself, in high school. I go for bottles these days. Usually a good bud light. I feel like I’ve grow up from the good old days of the cans.

Natty Light/PBR/The Beast… all good choices. However, “good” as it is used here, is relative.
