Default what is your go-to cheap beer?

I'm a big fan of Genesee bock beer. It's delicious, got a nice malty sweetness, and costs 6 bucks a 12 pack.

Wow...never had that. But it looks to be a good option for cheap.

My friends like to call me a beer snob because when I go out to drink a beer, I refuse to drink cheaper beers. I go for stuff that costs 15-20 a bottle most times.

I don't concider myself a snob because when I just want to relax and watch a game, I'll pick up a 30 pack of keystone (not all for me) for 13 bucks.

Saying "I guess I'd go for Sam Adams" is like saying "I guess I'd drive a porsche if I can't have a ferrari."

I think Sam Adams makes some great beer, and if it wasn't for them, there'd be no craft beer industry right now. I wouldn't concider it a cheap beer.

I don't keep much of what may be refereed to a "cheep beer"around, unless dad is on town. But my daily drinker is SNPA.

Sam Adams Lager
Goose Island Honkers Ale
Recently found that Molson Canadian is pretty decent for a cheap pilsner
Never seen Genesee, but its rating on BA and the cost you're saying make it seem like a fantastic value.
