No mention of Icehouse yet? It seemed really popular in the early-mid '90's at Purdue for events like penny beer night. It was also said to have a higher alcohol content than most of the others out there. I just remember that the stuff was awful.

That's because they were giving us Icehouse, not to mention the $3 cover charge. I wouldn't drink one if it was given to me now.

I'm still in college (should have just graduated, but I'm way behind in school), and I've had this for awhile...

Old Milwaukee in returnable bottles. 9.99 a case and it tasted the same warm or cold. Which is not really a good thing but you didn't care if you grabbed it off the floor or out of the cooler. We used the empty cases as furniture until the end of the semester when we would do a mass return to the liquor store.

Tom PBR was top shelf.

In high school we drank Special Export (Green Death) and Black Label.

I was a strange kid, by 17 I was already obsessed with Micro-breweries and Brew-Pubs. Most of my college visits we done so I could eat dinner at the local Brewpub in the area. By 21 I had sampled well over 1,000 different beers and attended the Great American Beer Festival twice.

But on those nights were volume was the goal, mostly stuck to Busch Light, Coors Light & Lowenbrau Ponies

Default Re: Cheap College Beers

Speaking as a recent grad from the University of Florida, a consistent top 5 party school:

- Natural Light (AKA Natty) was the base for all parties and drinking games.
- Bud Light is what the frat boys drank.
- PBR was considered classier, sipping beer
- Icehouse was more bang for the buck sipping beer (5.5%)
- Guinness was a special treat to be savored. Usually bought for a special occasion, like birthdays or after beating Georgia's @ss up and down the field
- Blue Moon is what u bought a chick at the bar
.......and Genny Light was the one beer that was universally unbearable

Not that I ever touched the stuff but that about covers it for my experience!

Been out of college for a while now, but still drink Keystone light at music festivals.

Main choices during college were Leinenkugel's, Pig's Eye, Old Milwaukee, Miller High Life and Busch light.

Around the festivals I go to, I see a lot of Hamm's being drank. Dunno what that's about.
