Depends upon your definition of 'gets the job done.' If you want to get a good buzz, go with Old Steel. Cheap and effective.

trying to balance taste with cost. there is a lot of crap out there. if you got to drink cheap with some taste what would that be.

Man, you guys get six packs of craft beer for under 10 drakmas? I live in the wrong place.

If I had a tenner, i'd try to get a growler of something local,or get a four pack of sixpoint 16's. Or just keep the ten, and drown my sorrows in porn.
