I'm just curious as to whether or not this is regional. I just picked up a 12 pack for $3.99, $4.25 w/tax. The clerk told me that there was a 'beer war' going on.

Does anyone remember gas wars? I once paid $0.19 a gallon. Just paid $2.95 to top off the truck, $56.00 total and I had over 1/4 tank.

I bet even with shipping that'd be cheaper than what I can get it for here. (but it'd still be American beer ;) )

I haven't seen prices for beer that low since when you could get a case for 10.99. Now its 18 packs for 12.99. Will have to look. Will still have to pay the high sin tax on alcohol/tobacco/caffiene(soda). Funny how the dims get all religious when they about to tax your a$$.

Unless you buy microbrews you would be hard pressed to find many big name american beers anymore. Miller was just bought by a South African company and Miller owns all these beers. And Coors is owned by a british conglomorate that is the largest single owner of liqour brands in the world, The Portman Group, Shmirnoff, Chivas, Jameson, etc.

I heard at the roadhouse last night that on September 12 the local mini-mart will be selling Bud and Coors 18-packs for $4.00 each. Limit of 5 per customer. Time to stock up.

WTF? I live 15 minutes from the Coors plant in Golden and I don't see cheap beer anywhere out here! We get fresh beer, but it ain't cheep. I also reminisce while peeing in the mountains that someday, that pee will wash into a nice mountain stream and eventually might become a Coors beer!

Growing up on euro beer, I understand your positions. My favorite here is Coors and at $3.99 a 12 pack, I'm in heaven.

I could give you a rundown of favorite beers around the globe but my taste may not be your taste.

One of the benefits of living in Michigan is that we have a superb brewer in our state. Bell's makes some of the best beers I have ever tasted. I cannot drink mega brewed swill.
