we enjoy good beers. Sometimes though a situation will call for a good ole' cheap beer. We aren't talking about Bud Light, Miller High Life, or the cliche hipster favorite Pabst. We are talking about beers with no advertising budget that you had no idea even existed anymore. Akin to the "slumpbuster," it can occasionally be necessary to drink a few of these low budget brews in order to clear ones head.
Recently we had the chance to enjoy a couple of exceptionally low-grade brews at Hartford bars. Pictured is Pete Sopersata pouring a Schlitz at a Sad City favorite South End watering hole. We noticed an older gentleman drinking a Schlitz at the bar and decided to order a round. You know you are in for a good time when the bartender responds to your order by asking "Are you sure?" Needless to say, the $1.50 cans of Schlitz went down great.
Just last weekend while visiting Vegas Blvd to serve as a mute wingman, we were informed that the bar only had one beer on tap, Red Stripe, and Schaefer cans. Not one to miss an opportunity, we continued our duty of standing mute while consuming a couple cans of very reasonably priced Schaefers.
What is the "best" bad beer you have drank in Hartford and where can it be found?
Remember folks, beer makes it good. Eleven million people can't be wrong.
Schaefer City or the Sad City? Tough call....
