I don't like any beer, so, to me, no beer is worth the money
I like Kahlua instead

If it's free, I'll try darned near anything. I am after all, a common sewer of beer.

As far as paying for, if I'm not somewhere where the choices are limited (like a carnival or something that likely has bud and bud light) then I'll usually go about as low as Miller Lite. Amber bock is a bit of a staple for me when I'm out to eat (it's not bad, and has good distribution). Pale ales are always a good choice for me.

I will admit to drinking "Grainbelt Beer" when it was free and I was young and poor. My husband says the worst he ever had was Blatz.

I like free or cheap beer but some will give me a splitting headache like Shaffears spelled wrong.I know other people that get bad headaches from certain beers after only one or two not from an all nighter.

In my younger days, I drank a lot of Lucky Lager. The screw tops had a little riddle on the inside, one that you could solve after imbibing six or seven. The best part was that you could buy a case for about $5.00.

Now, quality is winning over quantity. Henry Weinharts is about as low as I go.

Budweiser, blech, blech, a thousand times blech.

Could pick out Bud from a variety of beers and have.

Don't drink much beer anymore.

But how that swill has become what it is, I will never understand.

But then again,to each his/her own.

Hi jpmcgrew, have tossed a lot of beer down my gullet, and there were many times when the very inexpensive was all we could afford.

There were a lot of beers we could buy for less than Bud that were OK, not spectacular, but drinkable.

I like beer, but rarely drink it anymore.

But when I do, my preference is ales.

Once, on vacation in the UK, we found ourselves in a pub (ya gotta go potty once in a while and pubs are great places) that, in the cellar, had an ale festival.

OK, twist my arm, we had to go and see what it was all about.

Brewers from all over the UK had brought their kegs there and you could try their beers.

Even the better part of us liked the stuff.

Have found that people who say they don't like beer can often enjoy a very nice one.

Am not here to dump on Budweiser. The people who brew the rice into their concoction make a lot of money doing it. And if people want to drink the stuff, so be it.

Have done blind beer tastings, and can always nail the Bud.

Personally can tolerate most lagers put out, even very cheap ones, but Bud just has a flavor I cannot abide.
