I'm a born-and-raised Chicagoan, so maybe I'm a little partisan (although Old Style is a La Crosse, Wisconsin, beer) but Old Style is my go-to cheap beer of choice. I actually do enjoy it. For years, I thought Miller High Life was my slumming it beer, but one night at a bar, after throwing back three or four High Lifes, I switched to Old Style on a whim, only to realize just how much more flavorful and enjoyable it was.
