Best Cheap Beers: If You Must Buy at a 24-Hour Gas Station, Here Are Your Choices

Most of us working stiffs don't have mad cash to drop on huge quantities of good-quality beer. What is the alternative? Twenty-four-hour gas stations stocked with little rescue kits of mass-produced brew.

There are many selections, but here is a list of ten that every beer fiend should consider when strolling the aisles of 7-Eleven late at night. Some taste good, some are just reasonably priced for the volume, and some are a balance of the two. Disclaimer: All beer is good. Thank God for beer.

10. Samuel Adams
The Boston Beer Company is tied with D.G. Yuengling & Son for the largest American-owned beer maker, based on 2011 sales. And for good reason, Sam Adams Boston Lager is a good brew. The overhopped flavor was part of the U.S. craft beer explosion, and now it is more common than ever before.

9. Grolsch
The Grolsch Brewery in Holland was founded by Willem Neerfeldt in 1615 but was acquired by SABMiller, the world's second-largest brewing company by volume. This is a smooth import and fair game for late-night brews blues.

Good choices all, but not necessarily cheap ones.

Very few of these are cheap beers... A 4 pack of PBR pint cans costs $3.50 at my local gas station. Not too bad...
