Grain Belt Premium was named the best cheap American beer by Deadspin today, confirming what Minnesotans had long suspected and vociferously argued.
To capture the honor, Grain Belt beat out 35 other beers, including such notables as Milwaukee's Best, Yuengling, and that favorite of hipsters, PBR.
The great state where Grain Belt is produced figured into the write-up:
1. Grain Belt Premium. I always think of Minnesota as a secretly sexy place, and not just because of Kent Hrbek and Al Franken. Maybe it's all the trout and music and Lutherans. Toss in a smooth, creamy, and dreamy local budget brew like Grain Belt and it's a wonder Minnesota hasn't seceded to form its own naked blond utopia. Grain Belt Premium is America's finest cheap beer.
So enjoy a Grain Belt Premium today, and know that you are drinking the best cheap beer in America.
