$5.19/single 22 oz beer?

:shock:

You should try the Doghead Fish World Wide Stout. 18% ABV, $8.99/12oz. It will redefine leverage.

Left Hand Brewing Company Milk Stout is one of my favorites.

Ranger IPA by the New Belgium Brewing Co. is great too

I was recently offered a pint of Emmet's Red Ale (they are located in Palatine, IL) and was blown away. Will need to get a pack of those for myself :D

For better or worse, these days, this Boglehead only drinks on extra-special occasions. My favorites (which are not daily drinkers/session beers): Trappist Rochefort (Eight) and, for something completely different: Brut Des Flanders DeuS.

Both are incredibly tasty, and quite different from each other.

I suppose it's Bogelheadian to keep one's daily expenses low, and to splurge on extra-special occasions :wink:

I haven't read the whole thread yet, but I enjoy Natural Light. It's really cheap and hits the spot. I guess you'd call that a Boglehead Beer.

Tonight I had a Paulaner Salvator Dopplebock. It wasn't cheap or expensive...somewhere in the middle. It was really good!

I'd focus on diversity (mixed six-pack) and low expense ratio (purchased from a store, not a bar).

Here's my six pack, all of which I drink regularly:

1. Hitachino Red Rice Ale (Japan)
2. Rogue Dead Guy Ale (US)
3. La Chouffe (Belgium)
4. Baltika #9 (Russia)
5. La Fin du Monde (Canada)
6. Beer Lao Dark (Laos)

Or from the back of my best friend's pick-up truck when we're down at the lake.

But I'm just a mid-west country boy who made good.

I didn't realize we had so many artistic-type Bogleheads with their fancy foreign beers and pretty bow ties. :)

I agree w/ some other posters that some things are worth the extra money, and it doesn't add up to that much when done in moderation.
Some favorite breweries/beers:
Bells: Two-hearted ale ; favorite IPA that is widely available regionally
Founders: Breakfast Stout for the depth of flavor
Dogfish Head: I actuallythink the Punkin' is the best pumpkin beer released, even if it varies a bit year to year
Boulevard: The entire Smokestack series, especially the Bourbon Barrel Quad, Sixth Glass, and Dark Truth Stout
Rogue: Chocolate Stout as is good for gatherings w/ people that otherwise don't like 'craft' beers
Deschutes: Black Butte Porter or Obsidian Stout; both are widely available regionally

Depending on the part of the country you live in, many 'craft' beers are not that much more expensive than the Bud Light type beers. Also, I second BeerAdvocate.com as a great resource for learning more about beer in general.

This is indeed an eclectic bunch of beer people.

Yuengling makes an outstanding porter for those that like a darker beer. Another outstanding beer that is often overlooked, and brewed by the Corona people (Grupo Modelo) is Negra Modelo--an outsanding marzen/dunkel stye beer.

I've got at least two categories of beer: lawn mowing, on the deck beer (Strohs--18pk $9, Miller Lite) and good beer (Guinness, Bass, Smithwick, most anything by Great Lakes Brewing) I'm not a beer snob, though.

I've homebrewed and Charlie P. is the man, but who has time for that. Maybe I need to increase my batch size and start using cornelius kegs.

Geez! I just don't understand the Yuegling Lager love fest. If you like lager, and, yes, this is a STYLE of beer, not the Yuengling brand name...May I suggest Brooklyn Lager or Stoudts Gold. I'm really loving the Samiclaus beer lately. They have an amazing depth of flavor, def. not an everyday sipper. I love Bells and well, can't go wrong with their beers. Avery makes some incredible beer. Victory as well.

Homebrew. Like any good hobby, it's easy to do adequately, and difficult to do well. Look for a homebrew store near you and buy a beginner's kit for under $100. It'll have all the devices you need for the next few years except bottles. The store can advise on ingredient kits. I have a few recipes I brew over and over- a black ale and a hefeweizen that are better than most of the stuff I buy in Germany, much less USA.
Use your local stores if you have them, but here is the standard kit on my small local guy's website:
http://www.nfghomebrew.com/catalog/prod ... ts_id=1077

Papazian is a classic reference, although I recently discovered he's considered dated in some of his techniques and opinions. I found a better one recently, I *think* it was John Palmer, "How to Brew". Got it from library and forgot exactly which. Once you get your bearings, Homebrewtalk.com is a good place to waste a lot of time on the internet if you don't do that enough.

Commercial I'd buy Saranac if I wasn't so cheap and it was more available in eastern MA. The Trail Mix sampler was great. Edited: for medicinal purposes, I drank Icehouse until they stopped selling it around me. Good for a cheap evening buzz.

Kona Pipeline Porter
Sierra Nevada Porter
Moose Drool

Dos Equis (Amber)
Chimay Ale

I only drink one beer a day, before dinner. So I like to make it one I really enjoy.

Thanks for the inspiration to home brew. I have a friend who really got into it a few years ago, and eventually, his brews were outstanding. That's something I'm looking forward to doing when work slows down in a couple years.

If I do an online search Yuengling Lager costs half as much as the beers you listed. It's a good quality beer for a good price. The original question wasn't, what is the best beer... it asked for a Boglehead beer. Good taste at a great price... that's a Boglehead beer IMO.

woof755 wrote: When you hit up the ABC store or wherever you get your beer - look out for Deschutes Brewery six packs. I found a few places (actually some in Kauai) that carried this beer (brewed in Oregon) and managed to pick up their Inversion IPA. It will be quite different than the beers you like, but Beeradvocate gives Deschutes pretty good ratings.
If you email Deschutes, you're likely to get a message back from my sister-in-law. So I'm biased, but their beers are consistently in the good to fantastic range. The Abyss is literally the best beverage I've ever had. Their other hard-to-find 22's like Mirror Mirror, Dissident, Black Butte anniversary series, are worth whatever price you find them for. If you're ever in Bend, the brewery has free tastings and free tours.

Deschutes Black Butte porter and Mirror Pond pale ale are my Boglehead beers of choice--found on sale for $6/sixer. But for a lover of good beer, I'll admit that the occasional daily drinker is "Simpler Times" from Trader Joes--$3/sixer, especially when drinking multiples.

Dogfish Palo Santo Malo
Bell's Expedition Stout
Bell's Christmas Ale
Founder's Breakfast Stout

Edmund Fitzgerald Porter

Agree on Yuengling.

Also, for those who want some international diversification in your beer, Asahi is usually the most affordable beer, and in my opinion the tastiest as well, that goes with sushi.

If you're interested in an emerging market beer, I nominate Modelo Especial. Also inexpensive and good.

Homebrewer here as well...

Favorite is a clone of Ninkasi Total Domination IPA.

Drinking right now:
Imperial Stout, 10.5% ABV, 1 bottle is sufficient for the evening. One of my best beers yet.
Winter Ale- This is a Widmer Brrr Clone, turned out pretty similar and very tasty.

Next Up: Pilsner Urquell clone...in lagering process right now, ready to drink in April.

Yuengling is a great low cost "American style" lager that isn't pee water like Bud, Miller, etc.

The best budget-tight beer is PBR.

My favorite is a locally made brew, Yazoo. I have a growler that I go get filled about once a month. http://www.yazoobrew.com/home.php

I'm just being silly... It's pretty obvious many of you take your beer very seriously...

But in college, 24 beers for $10 always beats 6 beers for $10, no matter how good the 6 beers are.

And I still do the same math today...

I also still like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

What can I say, I'm not a man of refined taste... :)

I did a bit more math in college. Standard cheap domestic beer is 4-4.4% abv (alcohol by volume). Craft beers easily average 6 or 7%, and some go a lot higher. Since cheap beer does not taste good, you are drinking it for the alcohol, so you have to take that into account in your calculation.

A local bar has pints of Dogfish 90 minute IPA (9%) on happy hour special for $3.75, or Coors Light for $2 (4.2%). The Dogfish cost $2.61 per ounce of alcohol ($3.75 / (16 ounces * 9%) . Coors cost $2.97 per ounce of alcohol. It's cheaper to get drunk off the good beer in this case.

Like a lot of you, beer is one of the few things I don't really scrimp on. If I'm in the mood for something in particular, I will buy it regardless of the price.

That being said, I still try to find bargains sometimes. One of the better quality-for-the price breweries is Shiner, as others have mentioned. I like their "bock" but it's probably in the bottom 50% of their brews, IMO. Their black lager, anniversary, and seasonal beers are generally better to me yet won't break the bank.

Try this (cubedbee above showed some math on that) - buy 6 beers for $10, add water to get the equivalent of 24 beers.
Taste and alcohol contents at the end might actually match.

Cubedbee- You make a good point. I do take that into consideration at the bar. To clarify, I do enjoy beer other than Keystone Light :) I usually buy cheap at home, and splurge a little more at the bar with less watered-down options.

Heh, If I was going for pure alcohol/price points, I'd just make Everclear Jello shots...

Something else to consider in college - drinking games...

I'd much rather be chugging one of those 24 cheap beers than one of my 6 expensive beers...

Plus, I won't get upset if a buddy wants to mooch a couple of my 24 beers.

I also won't get upset (well, not too much) if I spill one of my 24 cheap beers...

In college, 24 cheap beers > 6 expensive beers

I am used to drinking cheap beer now, even though the reasons may no longer hold true... It still tastes good to me!

Agreed. Thankfully I now make a lot more money, and even more importantly, drink a lot less beer. So I try and stay away from the cheapies for the most part.

Much closer to Vanguard (Malvern PA) than Yuengling is Victory Brewing Company (13 miles). Their Storm King, Hop Devil, and Golden Monkey are excellent. However, it's a bit more pricey than Yuengling and not as well distributed.

As a Boglehead beer, Yuengling has the edge on availability and pricing.

My favourite beer is Schneider Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock.

But be careful. At 12% ABV one bottle packs almost as much wallop as a bottle of wine.
