    Map: The Cheap Beers People Drink Across The U.S.

    http://www.fastcodesign.com/3028663/...us?partner=rss

    In the age of Amazon, when much of the world is but a click away from having any product they can imagine shipped to their doorstep in just two days, beer is stubbornly anachronistic, a globalization holdout that's subject to the physical locations of breweries, along with the regional patterns of alcohol distributors.
    It’s a picture painted well by the team from Floating Sheep, who compiled a million tweets, scanning for words like “beer” and “wine” to plot the alcoholic preferences across the U.S. What they uncovered is essentially the United States of Cheap Beer--a map of the generic, though perfectly tasty, lagers and pilsners that we loyally drink region by region.
    For the most part, the visualization reinforces half-marketed, half-social stereotypes. Coors really does “tap the Rockies,” and people in the Lone Star state actually drink Lone Star. Corona is the beer of beaches--the kids in SoCal love it--though don’t tell Floridians and their Yuengling that. And Milwaukee's Best is absolutely a popular drink in Milwaukee

    I don't drink Coors, but Coors Light. So I guess that counts. Though I have't drank in years.

    Yeah, not sure I understand the popularity of yuengling in s. Florida. I believe its a Philly beer. Really wouldn't classify goose island as a cheap beer. It's definitely popular in Chicago though since it's a local but it's becoming pretty prevelant through out the country. Olympia, lone star and schlitz.....ugh. Is iron city out of Pittsburgh still around? Used to drink hamms in college.

    I live just south of the Lone Star/Dos Equis line in East Texas. Dos Equis is pretty good stuff and is available everywhere here as is Shiner, the brewery is about an hour from here. However, I only know one guy who drinks Lone Star and the people here give him crap about it. I like Dos Equis Especial and Shiner Black Lager myself, as far as "local" beers go.

    I've lived in Texas since '95 and I don't think I've ever seen anyone drink a Lone Star. It's ****ing terrible.
    I had about a half of one, and, that was that. It's ****ing horrid.

    Now, you want a good quality cheap beer? They sell it only at Walgreens
    and they call it "Big Flats". If you like beer, give it a shot. I don't think
    you'll be disappointed in the quality/price ratio.

    I keep a case or so in the house.

    Thanks Shifty!

    Yeungling used to be priced as a premium beer in Florida (at least in my neck of the woods). I noticed after Anheuser/InBev bought them out the price dropped dramatically, the same as bud in my area. I think that could explain the popularity in Florida.

    I've never tried Lone Star, I just trusted everyone who said it tasted like crap! You just confirmed that swill will never pass my lips. Thanks for the confirmation!
