Cheap Beers with Merit?

Tripeler | Oct 8, 2010 06:06 AM

On the recently surfaced Cheap Beers thread, I commented on Steel Reserve, an 8% abv monstrosity with a rather low price tag. This beer has always struck me as a Poor Man's Duvel, and for that reason (along with its low price) I feel that Steel Reserve has some inherent merit, despite the obvious flavor flaws and potential for a larger than life hangover if one is not careful.

If anyone out there is in some way a Steel Reserve fan, tell me why you are.

Also, can you think of any cheap beers that have some merit to you?
