Walgreens selling its own private-label beer

submitted on January 27, 2011 by orangearrows in "Products / Gadgets"
Walgreen Co. has quietly rolled out a private label brew. The product, Big Flats 1901, will carry a suggested retail price of $2.99 for a six-pack of cans and $11.49 for a 24-pack, the company said.

It will be the private label beer for Deerfield-based Walgreens in states where it’s allowed. Prices may vary by region. The chain began selling the beer in mid-December and it’s now available in more than 4,000 locations, a company spokesman said.

    Was getting my hopes up. It is cheap for a reason -possible poor quality and taste.

    Excerpt from a beer review website (FuzzyBrew):

    Well, it tastes kind of like soap. Slightly bitter, effervescent soap.

    The beer is pale yellow in color, with an aroma that’s grainy and somewhat skunky.

    It’s “brewed from only the choicest hops,” according to the can, which is a laughable claim. There is little to no hop aroma or taste in the beer.

    At a really cold temperature, it might go down fine. And at $3.49, it’s cheap, cheap, cheap. So I can’t discourage the drinking of this beer if you’re not concerned about its quality.

      I never had my hopes high - at 2.99 for a 6pack - it was never going to be good. But I guess - if you buzzed - and if you got nothing else - this will work.

    Hooray for generic beer! Something to give Natural Light a run for their nastiness!
