(AKA The cheap-ass-24oz-beer-off )

Today, after being extremely indecisive in the beer I let my local grocer, I have decided to take on a project that I have talked about for a few years now. I am going to try to determine what’s the best cheap beer available is. I’ve thought long and hard about the correct way of approaching this project, and I believe I have come up with a plan that will help me conclude which beer is the best of the worst.

I think using  single elimination and double elimination brackets isn’t completely fair when comparing tastes. Enter Round Robin!


“In theory a round robin tournament is the fairest way to determine a champion among a known and fixed number of participants. Each player or team has an equal chance against all other participants,..  The primary disadvantage to a round robin tournament is the time needed to complete it.” – Wikipedia


OMG, there is no way im spending that much time on round-robbining (sp?) these beers. It would take FOREVER!

switching back to Double elimination!!!


So in order to keep this to a reasonable number of beers, I’m letting the market determine the participants by using the most affordable way to market and sell a cheep buzz known to man, Th 24oz can!

Using this list from Binny’s as a reference and eliminating mixers,  malt beverages and anything breaking the $3.00 ceiling. I have narrowed down the contestants to the following beers:

Coors Light
Old Style
Natural Light
Bud Light
Busch Light
Miller Lite
Old Milwaukee
Miller Genuine DraftPabst Blue Ribbon
Miller High Life


Too Many? Too Few? right bracket type? Let Me know what you think!Round 1 Begins Sunday!
