This week, we drink beer for science. We took five of the cheapest brands I could find at my local liquor store, in an attempt to find the best of the worst! We also talk about the Civilization: Beyond Earth announcement, Star Citizen’s proof of our economic hubris, and our mission to find out who makes no-name brand food. We also discuss the fluid mechanics of beer shotgunning.

Beers of the Week:

1. Carling Black Label

2. Iron Horse

3. Carling Black Label Extra Old Stock

4. Pabst Blue Ribbon

5. Hells Gate Freedom Lager
