That's really all there is to say. Honestly, there are a lot of entirely forgettable beers that made their way to college parties based on price, and Natural Ice was always one of them. We still think it's ideal for beer pong games, we just like losing a little less. The king of beers pissed off beer drinkers a few years back by acting like craft beer is a dainty waste of time. They should have just been honest: There are times when you want a Russian Imperial, and times when you just want a drink in your hand.
Budweiser is that drink. The economy brand within the Anheuser portfolio is, well, actually not that bad. An ever-so tiny step up in flavor from Bud, the "Champagne of Beers" isn't all bad, especially you're having a backyard burger. It's even good for hiding that deep char taste when your buddy flips the patties one too many times. Say what you will, but for us Miller Lite will always be the anti-Bud Light. It's what you get when you want to spend a little extra, but still drink a case in a day. Maybe those years are behind you, but everyone gets nostalgic sometimes.
Natty Boh was originally a Maryland beer, until Pabst bought it, and 90 percent of their sales are still allegedly in the state. As such, we recommend it with seafood and drinking away another year of crushed World Series hopes. We're not being sarcastic when we say that lime flavored water that slowly gets you drunk was a brilliant marketing move by Budweiser. It may be too sweet for some occasions, but it's ideal for the beach and any boating activities you might be packing for.
Robin Hood Brewing Co.
The Rhode Island beer's claim to fame is being the beer of choice for Quint in the movie "Jaws," so we highly recommend a case of it alongside your tackle box. Schlitz is a bastard child of a beer brand, passed around among parent companies for decades. We'd rank it higher, but we'd have to find it first. Grain Belt is one of those great old standards that just lost the war of time against giants like Budweiser and Miller.
The price point is a little high, and it's a bit harder to find, but it's a nice alternative when you're playing around with your favorite bargain beer. As a piece of Americana, Schaefer is a need to try, and at 60 cents a can, it's also cheap to buy. We're not sure why, like Grain Belt, so many owners have sold it off.
We do know it was huge in Puerto Rico for decades, and those people know summer drinking. Of the so-called "Big Three" we happen to like Coors light the best. Maybe it was all of those cool temperature-based color changing cans that got us. Or maybe it's just that, of the three light beers, Coors tastes the most like beer. Our second cheapest beer on the list, Milwaukee's Best has declined in popularity in recent years, as the more popular siblings got more attention.
As such, it remains a bargain even within the cheap beer world. The light king of beers is, in the U. But we're here to remind you that it's also just as refreshing.
