NPR ran a story on the Washington Post's blind tasting of cheap beers (had to be less than $6 for a six-pack). This is something that we have in the works and will be bringing you ... well ... as soon as we can get schedules coordinated to do it.
In the meantime, I was thinking about this over the holiday weekend as I found myself suffering with Miller High Life and Coors Light at Summerfest (though both Lakefront and Milwaukee Ale House both have facilities there - unfortunately I didn't see them before I had bought my beer - it was the first time I had been to Summerfest).
We had New Glarus' Naked with fireworks which I enjoy considerably more than Spotted Cow. Furthermore's Oscura made it into the mix for Concerts on the Square last week. Of course, neither of those meet the sub-$6 requirement. Unfortunately ingredients and general economies of scale issues prevent the good stuff for selling less than $6 for a six-pack. This is why I find myself buying 22s and 750s, many of which can be found for less than $6.
We've already talked about my latest obsession with Coors Banquet. So, what do you grab for less than $6 a six-pack?
