When the economy went in the hole and hid itself this winter, I turned into a cheap beer guy. I started drinking Black Label, or Pabst Blue Ribbon, or Miller High Life. If it was $4.89 a six pack, I tried it. My tastes suffered some, but I steeled my mind, took it all in stride. I became suspicious even of those who condemned my purchases, who offered to buy me "something better." I've since sobered up, pardon the expression, and have come to enjoy more balanced and more expensive brews, but I shall not forget the good cheap beers I enjoyed. And if 97bottles.com gets back up and running, you can all marvel at my reviews of them.
