I truly love me some well crafted beers, but on my wages, I drink cheap day to day beer most times. Ad for me, that beer will always be Narragansett. It almost tastes like real beer. There is even the faintest taste of hops in there! :-)

Sometimes you just want a pale American lager. PBR is a decent one. I try to keep something around of that style for folks who come by and are skeptical- they usually step up from PBR to our cream ale or ordinary bitter and don't turn back though.

Wish I could make some lagers here, though. Don't have room for a third beer fridge in 580sqft though, even though the wife would allow it.

I love me some PBR. The problem is that you can drink so many of them, it gets to be more expensive than drinking a craft beer or two.

PBR does not seem to taste the same here in Florida as it did in Ohio. I used to love PBR up in Ohio, in fact it was my "go to" beer. Down here, I really don't care for it. Miller High Life is now my "go to" commercial.

Currently have PBR, keystone light and homebrews in my beer fridge.

PBR is good stuff lots of non craft beer drinkers don't like it because.... Well it doesn't taste like water downed piss like most domestic beers. It actaully has beer flavor which to some is overwelming....

Pbr is awesome. If it isn't homebrew I'm usually drinking some pbr pounders.

No, it's pretty bad. You're just not used to how bad it is...

I was gonna post the same thing. If you're going for a cheap tallboy you really can't beat Narragansett. Less than $5 for a 6 pack of 16oz cans if you're in RI, it's hands down my favorite cheap beer. More flavorful than PBR or High Life.

I grew up on Blatz, Special Export and PBR, back when Blatz and SE were actual Heileman beers. PBR's just always been good ole PBR, and when they started coming back out with the tall boys in cases for $20 (you Hipsters can have your "pounder" lingo), it was like being reintroduced to an old friend. If they don't sell it at least in pints, it ain't beer.

I have PRB in my office fridge and my garage/shop fridge. My daily beer!

We have it on Tap up here too, and for 20 somethings, it's become their beer of choice for case parties.
