For those times a Slurpee and Slim Jim just won't take the edge off, 7-Eleven customers will soon be able to partake of more adult offerings when the convenience store chain begins selling Game Day, a budget private-label beer.

I gotta get some for my can/bottle collection because I don't think it will be around for long.

I'll be preparing myself for the after-effects of trying it with some aspirin and toilet paper.

Ok...WHY...WHY...WHY in the heck do you want people to "Trade Down" from Bud or Bud Light? Isnt that the reason you sell natty Light and Bud Ice? In TX that cheap 7-11 stuff is going to be a hard sell! First of all who wants to be seen with one of these beers? People are gonna say youre broke or cheap! I aint taking this beer to a party! NOT a good idea! Leave the beer to the b eer experts and you stick to the slurppees!

They talk about this garbage on page 9 the current issue of Beer Magazine. It is going to cost $9.00 a 12 pack, it only come in light and ice and only in cans. It is brewed in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I am guessing it is City Brewing Company, but not sure. I remember a Cost Cutters Kooger Beer can in my collection when I was a kid, but I am guessing about the same.

I realize that this is an older post, but I had to provide my two cents and say that this is an atrocity to beer drinkers all over the country. I mean, this isn't horrible JUST FOR US beer snobs, but for casual drinkers too. I didn't even know that this product existed. Either I don't visit 7-11 enough or I just don't seek out the cheap stuff anymore. . . hence me missing this awful product. O_o

I've seen it at a 7-11 in Boston. The cases were not chilled, and they were dusty. Looks like no one else is willing to be the guinea pig on this shat..

I finally found some of this crap and it wasn't even at a 7-11. It cost me 50 cents for one warm, dusty can and I think I paid too much! Congrats to the brewers for making my top 5 all-time worst beers list. I was only able to finish this beer because of the other beers I drank before and after this monstrosity.
