I drank it and had it spilled on me when I was 16ish. No thanks. I'm with OpenD. Venice beach still has a couple of good beer places.

My husband loves it. I suspect what he likes most is the higher alcohol content. He has asked me to stop by the liquor store for him when I'm out and buy a 30 pack and I tell him it might be okay for a guy to buy the stuff, but there is no way in hell I am going to come walking out of a liquor store looking like a white trash woman carrying a 30 pack of The Beast. I mean, I have my dignity!

What's that saying? "There's no accounting for taste."

If Milwaukee's Best is Milwaukee's best, I'd just as soon avoid Milwaukee beer.

That said, I do like PBR and the occasional MGD.

Drank the stuff exactly twice in my life. Neither time I had much say in the matter. It was either deal with the beast, or don't drink at all. Well, I guess a dance with the beast is better than a dry evening with the crew so...

What I noticed... Low ABV content, which practically requires you to drink a few to notice you've consumed an alcoholic beverage. The other inconvenience... Made me gassy the next day. I usually don't get beer farts, so maybe it was my sphincter telling me not to drink crappy beer again. Heck, I'd rather drink Old English before messing with MB again. The taste itself just seemed to have slight sewage notes in the background that was all but unique to this particular beverage.

There's cheap beer, and then there's complete swill that should only be reserved for novelty sake. There is good cheap beer. I personally don't mind Miller high life, PBR, Schlitz, Rolling Rock... Not only are those tolerable, but they are actually pleasant if you plan to drink a few at a sitting. There's nothing pleasent about Milwaukees best in my opinion though. I half way think the name is an attempt at sarcasm.

At a measly 4.2% ABV, one can only ask... What does you husband find appealing about this particular beer? It certainly ain't it's alcohol content, unless he is looking for something a slight step up from non alcoholic beer.

I'm guessing that her husband drinks Milwaukee's Best Ice, which I don't really care for. It gives me the sh*ts and a headache. It is 5.9%. I much prefer the Premium and I'll even take it over MHL.

If one wants to talk about somethin' nasty, though. If you think that MilBest Premium is nasty...well...try the Light. That stuff IS nasty.

Harrier mentioned PBR. I don't get what ppl see in that. PBR ain't too great, imo.

MGD is good.

btw, I've never seen MilBest in a 30 pak. Only 24 paks. Here, anyways.

Do most cheap beers use some other cheaper grain besides barley? Like rice or something?

The Breast is just an average, ordinary cheap lager. Neither offensive nor memorable. I'll drink it if I don't have much money but want to knock back a case or so.

PBR caught on with the young folks, and the hipsters in particular. Around here, it's not uncommon to see a 20-something walking home with a case of PBR in hand. As far as macrobrews go, it is one of my preferred beers. I like it because it has more flavor than typical thin, rice flavored macros. A nice sweet corn flavor that makes it a great choice for session drinking. It was also the beer my grandfather always kept in his refrigerator. It has made quite a comeback in the past 5 years.

PBR = instant heartburn for me. Not sure why. I'd drink Lone Star if I was in need of a low priced "retro" hipster beer.
