If you want a good case of beer on the cheap, try J.W. Dundee’s Craft Pack. In Atlanta, it’s less than $10. Probably elsewhere it’s more expensive, but the Hefeweisen is great. Also, the Pale Bock tastes like it should sell for $5 a bottle on its own. It’s the best tasting cheap beer you can buy (with the exception of the Honey Brown – yuck.) Also, try Fire Station 5. Great product and inexpensive**, and they also have a variety pack.
If you want advice on either choosing a good beer, or making your own (beer or wine) let me know. I know my shit!
** When I say inexpensive, I’m talking from a Canadian point of view, where beer is mostly at least $20 a dozen. For example, Budweiser in New Brunswick is $21.99.
