Browsing the Best Cheap Beer thread (which was a great read), I was a little frustrated by how I just didn't like a lot of those beers, regardless of how dollar-efficient they are. "Good" is way too subjective.
Perhaps there should be a category of sticky "recession" threads for great buys on specific styles of beer.
In any case--I am a lover of hop-centric brews, and given that a) I am far from alone in that preference and b) hoppy beers tend to be pricier than their compadres, I was hoping to engage in a lively discussion on budget-friendly beers with an IPA ethos.
Let me begin by saying that I, too, miss SN Celebration Ale. I find that the Pale Ale does a pretty great job for the money. Any other suggestions for cost-efficient hop experiences?
