Economy Beer

So, it comes to this:

MILWAUKEE–Cash-strapped drinkers are starting to trade down to economy beers, the chief executive of Miller Brewing Co. said Thursday.

The Milwaukee-based brewer saw some shift between higher-priced, premium beers and economy beers such as Miller High Life and Milwaukee’s Best starting in January, Tom Long told reporters on a conference call.

I get it, to a degree. Our grocery bill grows exponentially every week, almost to the point I’m ready to actually establish a weekly budget for it…but Milwaukee’s Best? GAK!

Remember the "Generic Beer" in plain white cans? Wasn't that awful swill produced to help hop-heads through the double-digit inflation that plagued us toward the end of the Jimmy Carter years?

Yes - remember it well as it graced the table in front of my dad on many, many occasions! Well, at least he didn't drink Billy Beer!!! :shock:

I'm with you Merri ~ GAK!!!! That's the stuff we bought in college after spending the afternoon at the plasma donation center. We'd get just enough for a case and go back to the apartment and nurse our sore arms with some Swill!
