I should also say I have a real soft spot for"big" beers.

Southern Tier 2X IPA and 2X Stout. Or just go with Steel Reserve.

Well, the deal is that one budgets for beer and then figures out the rest.

Trader Joeís has some incredibly good value beers. The Mission Street beers the store sells [at all its locations] are actually just rebranded Firestone-Walker - one of the best breweries in the US according to many a drinker. The Mission Street Anniversary Ale (8.5%) is pretty great and it sells for under $4 per bomber (if I recall correctly).

He is asking for "beer on a budget" and people are recommending bombers?

I think OP needs to clarify. It would be helpful to know what you mean by "budget.". What, to you, is a reasonable price for a beer?

Do you get anything by Lagunitas? They are a high quality brewer that tends to sell cheap, and tend to be widely available. Also, if heís just sampling, nothing wrong with the bomber recommendations. Few things are worse than getting a six-pack thatís a drainpour, especially after someone recommended it and it turned out to not suit your palate. I like to mix up bombers and six-packs myself for that very reason.

I think that 2xIPA was a good suggestion. Lotta bang for the buck and tasty too.
