Deadspin: 36 Cheap American Beers, Ranked

Recommended Posts

29. National Bohemian. As one of the few Americans who's never seen The Wire or flashed my tits at the Preakness, I'm largely shut out of the Baltimore conversation, but I HAVE had a Natty Bo, which qualifies me to say, Sure, I get it, hometown pride is nice sometimes. But you do know there are other beers, right?

Well, he does admit to being out of the conversation, so he wouldn't get the concept of Baltimore Ironic Bohemia, or the Baltimore Hipster.

I wasn't judging. I haven't had a Natty Bo since I was about 12. Don't recall much about it.

Well, it really isn't the greatest. What I was pointing out was that he answered his last question with his own previous admission.

Had my first Boh soon after they started serving it the Yard again. It was better than I expected. :) It's not bad.

Dress it up as a "cocktail"....

I do like RR, however, fat man smell or not....beats Coors Lite! 'gansett and Lone Star aren't that bad.

Twelve?

Yes. My sister was 3.5 years (4 grades) older then me and most of my friends were three years (three grades) older then me. I had my first cigarette at 10 and my summer vacations from 11-13 would include drinking cheap beer and whatever liqueur we could procure.

What's funny is that around here, hipsters snub Narragansett in favor of PBR.

Worst beer I ever tasted was Iron City. My first year in college - U of M at College Park - four of us jumped in a car and headed down Rt. 1 to DC, where the drinking age was 18 and you could buy all the 3.2% alcohol beer you could handle. We bought a case of Iron City for $2.98....and we all gagged on the first swallow. We were sitting at a red light and 3 guys were standing on the corner. We asked them if they wanted some beer and handed them the case. The light changed and we drove off leaving 3 stunned guys holding a case of beer.
