The Cheap Stuff
Not everyone dives into the world of adult beverages in their college years. Steven Luna is one of those who waited until he was well on his way to retirement. Now, at the ripe old age of 47, he’s diving in…or, more accurately, wading in very gradually, and with the help of his “spirit guides,” Clayton Smith and Jordon Quattlebaum.
Where better to begin learning about the progression of What to Drink than with the beverage most novice drinkers can afford best: cheap beer. The crew explores the virtues of cheap beer (cost, ease of inebriation, and nostalgia, mostly) before touching on how to progress to cheap wine and malt beverage. Then they sample the goods, and Luna gives his…er, descriptive first impression. And as they say, it’s all downhill from there. (Beers sampled: Icehouse, Natural Light, and Bud Ice, all for under $3 per 25 oz can.)
