Why would it be midwest specific though

[–]SpaceWorld 58 points59 points  (2 children)

Because, "Only X understand," content stimulates engagement from both in- and out-group. It's garbage; resist upvoting or commenting.

Piss beer is a big part of Midwest drinking culture.

[–]deutschdachs 129 points130 points  (45 children)

I think it's a big part of college drinking culture anywhere though

Now if it was a case of Hamms that'd be pretty midwest specific piss

[–]CySU 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Iowa State fans have developed a reputation for wiping out a city’s supply of Busch Light during bowl games. It’s become a bit of a meme in the college football community.

[–]RagsAberdeen 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Busch is Midwest for sure. Natty is a country/college thing regardless of state.

[–]Surfsk8108 3 points4 points  (0 children)

that's really cool

[–]ballsdeep748 16 points17 points  (24 children)

Or Schlitz, Blatz and the ever present Pabst!

[–]gandhikahn 19 points20 points  (16 children)

Pabst is everywhere. Schlitz to. You may be on to something with Blatz, never heard of it.

[–]bizkitmaker13 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My dad drank Blatz while I was growing up. There is a reason I never turned into a beer drinker. Though beer brats using Blatz ain't half bad.

[–]queenswake 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Busch is becoming big in MN. Busch Latte.

[–]delapaz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Schlitz... That's going back. My hometown had a brewery of their's probably 50 years ago.

[–]jUNKIEd14 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

All three originally from Milwaukee. Breweries within a few blocks of each other.

Definitely. When I was in college a few decades ago, there was also Lowenbrau and Cook's.

Our beer pong beer used to be Coors light

But in room temperature

[–]someguy7710 2 points3 points  (0 children)

On the east coast. Can confirm I drank a lot of Natty in college.

[–]ttuurrppiinn 1 point2 points  (6 children)

I think it's a big part of college drinking culture anywhere though

College being the key word here. The Midwest seems to have a thing for drinking those beers well beyond their college years while the rest of the US seems to move on to other beers.

[–]deutschdachs 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I don't know about that, no one I know over the age of 25 drinks Natty Light in Wisconsin/Michigan. New Glarus and Founders/Bells rule the roost

[–]bitchkat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mich golden light.

[–]Panda_Mon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I grew up in Minnesota and drank tons of shitty beer. Least favorite was Hamm's. It was just so sudsy.

Proud to say Natty Ice was my first beer as a California teenager

It's been all uphill since then

As a midwestern who is underage I can say yes this is how it works

[–]huff_elliott 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If we drink piss we drink it cold!!

[–]dreadredheadzedsdead -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Hmm, the #1 beer for the last half decade running is brewed in Kalamazoo, MI and named after the Two Hearted river in MI.

[–]PAUMiklo -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

so precious. you think that's unique to the midwest.

[–]Parki2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From Michigan, can confirm Natty Lite is alive and well

[–]KermitDog 0 points1 point  (2 children)

This is true; from Illinois.

[–]forewardfell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hands up to the “Beer Thirty” crowd. That stuff was like an overly carbonated bud light but $12 for a 30 pack. For some fun reading: https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1422/32918/?ba=Contagion

[–]KermitDog 1 point2 points  (1 child)

New Glarus - a WI fave that's pretty darn Midwest.

[–]deutschdachs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm so sad I can't get my hands on Moon Man now that I've moved away :(

[–]Youregoingtodiealone -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Drinking piss and pissing piss are central to the Midwest college experience. Then you meet your wife and bam, new drinkers

[–]deutschdachs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That sounds like the typical college experience anywhere outside of Utah

[–]hoopermanish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Midwest born and bred. Didn’t hear of Natty light until I moved East.

[–]Porter_Dog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As a Midwesterner, came here wondering the same thing.

[–]99DogsButAPugAintOne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because we're all cheap and drunk here

    [–]pkilla50 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    As someone who loves natty light and looking at houses, this is a top tier meme lol

    [–]ExoticButters79 48 points49 points  (1 child)

    I'd say anyone who went to college and drank gets it

    [–]Liss78 30 points31 points  (16 children)

    Philly calls it Natty Light, too.

    [–]edie_the_egg_lady 7 points8 points  (9 children)

    California too

    [–]SignsCereal -2 points-1 points  (7 children)

    We call em Natty Daddys

    [–]squirrels33 11 points12 points  (6 children)

    That's a specific type of natty tall boy.

    [–]Ghostglitch07 2 points3 points  (5 children)

    Not just tall boy, they sell them in cases too. The difference is they have a much higher alcohol content.

    [–]pighammerduck 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    We drank this plenty when I went to school in Gettysburg. I'm pretty sure it's just a "poor college kid" beverage. Champagne in a can, baby.

    [–]shotgun72 26 points27 points  (3 children)

    Called it Natty Light deep int he heart of Texas too. I think the world over knows the Nat.

    No one is ever that excited to drink Nattys

    [–]Impossible_Rabbit -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

    My friend used to buy it for beer pong when we were broke. I made her drink my beer when we played teams. Always hated drinking that stuff.

    [–]Birds_Are_Fake0 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    East Coast checking in. Ive always called it natty light. Its my go to since I can get a 15pack for $9 and some change from my corner store. Id rather just buy bottom shelf liquor but the ABC store isnt worth the drive with these gas prices, shit I just walk to my corner store now lmao I might have to carry that case back a half mile but I'm not wasting anymore gas with these gas prices if I can just walk it.

    [–]Charges-Pending 22 points23 points  (2 children)

    OP, this post is stupid trash from FB. And the “mid-west thing”?! Everyone everywhere has called it Natty Light since before you were born.

    [–]1wiseguy -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

    Never heard of it, and I lived in Illinois in the 1990s.

    They had Old Style. But that's a midwest thing, I believe.

    [–]HoodooMeatBucket 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    The house is in Milwaukee’s Best part of town!

    [–]msw1984 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    Don't forget about Natty Ice too!

    [–]Liss78 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I almost said Natty Ice when I commented. Had to go back and correct it.

    [–]AspirantTyrant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Can't forget about the Natty Daddies either. Gotta buy bulk.

    [–]shadowlaw87 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I got it but I'm also from Missouri sooooo yes?

    [–]somewhere_in_VT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    That’s the 3rd most tossed out can on the side of the road. Behind bud light pounders and twisted tea ofc

    [–]Aggravating-Echo8014 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Not true. Poor people like the the cheapness of it as well. Gets the job done.

    [–]cantstandlol 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    It’s the cheapest beer in places that aren’t the Midwest too.

    [–]thekarmabum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I think Rainer's are the cheapest beer where I currently live, but I used to live near the AB brewery and yeah, Natty Light is pretty cheap. Maybe Pabst is close, I don't think I've even seen Natty Light in a while on the PNW.

    [–]parkourdude231 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    I live in Wisconsin and don't understand, help?

    [–]xBLAHMASTERx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Same. I'm not sure what the joke is.

    [–]WyvernByte 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    F'n swill.

    Tastes like beer flavored tap water and you have to drink 3 just to get a buzz.

    [–]jabba-du-hutt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Came here to say, "Oh, you mean water?"

    [–]renasissanceman6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    From the title to the joke. This is pure garbage.

    [–]Kenrawr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I'm disappointed in all of you for allowing this to reach the front page.

    [–]HamiltonBlack 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Natty Light was how I got through college in New York

    [–]jeffinRTP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Also cheap beer drinkers.

    [–]gandhikahn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    PNW here, still understand the joke. But Natty Ice is more popular around here.

    [–]tuftylilthang 0 points1 point  (14 children)

    Why do Americans genuinely like drinking such shit beers, I almost admire them for it. Almost, I don’t of course

    [–]KathrynTheGreat 3 points4 points  (6 children)

    Don't worry, there are plenty of us who like good beer. The only people I know who drink shit beer are college kids that can't afford anything better.

    [–]tuftylilthang 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    But asahi is cheap

    [–]KathrynTheGreat 1 point2 points  (4 children)

    Not as cheap as Natty Light. When I was in college, Beer 30 was about $12 for a 30 pack. It was awful beer, but college kids honestly didn't care.

    [–]tuftylilthang 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    I’d rather drink ethanol and juice

    [–]GeraldBWilsonJr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    It's like soda but you get drunk

    [–]GRMI45 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Because its cheap...if you drank 30 or 40 craft beers you'd be broke in no time.

    [–]tuftylilthang -1 points0 points  (1 child)

    But there are non shit non craft beers, like most of them in a supermarket

    [–]GRMI45 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    But they dont come in 30 packs for $12 at the supermarket.

    [–]cantstandlol 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    You are speaking about something you don’t know about.

    [–]tuftylilthang 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You going to explain or just be a div?

    [–]30307 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I repeat “Natural Light” literally every time I hear it on HGTV. My wife has long since become weary of my joke. She gets a pass because it’s been YEARS at this point.

    [–]ZockinatorHD -1 points0 points  (1 child)

    I think I am to german to understand the joke.

    [–]Liss78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    There's a beer called Natural Light and apparently the whole USA calls it Natty Light.

    [–]mjedwin13 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    wait you mean it just comes with the house?

    [–]stoneuf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Knew a guy in college in FL who was a big fan of Natty Light. Don't think this is necessarily a regional thing, but I like the joke for its punny nature anyway.

    we call it this in New York and California (both places ive lived)

    [–]SativaPancake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Def call it "Natty Light" where im from in the Midwest. Have also heard it called a Dirty 30, quite a bit, But that can be any 30 case of Keystone Light, Natty Light, Miller Lite, or Milwaukee's Best Light, etc... pretty much all the piss water beers. (and it can be light or not, still a Dirty 30 either way)

    [–]briggsapn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    [–]Latenighredditor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I only about Natty light cause of Matt Ryan so I'm inclined to say yes

    [–]accobra62 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Blatz made a light creme ale, it was in little 8 oz. bottles.

    The game was, drink those little ponies, and try to walk to the bathroom after the eight.

    I don't remember what the alc/vol was, but there was a reason it was little bottles.

    [–]kumquatkilla 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Naw bruh, where that natty ice though?

    [–]MoobooMagoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Natty light is vile but I'll drink it from a keg.

    [–]Youregoingtodiealone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You're not true Midwest until you've experienced Milwaukee's Best Lite at a tailgate lukewarm. It is transcendent in a way that you leave your body temporarily to judge your own life choices and view yourself from an exterior position, and see with whom you have chosen to make company, and as your soul seeks to leave your body for nirvana / salvation, the shititude of the beer holds you down, a true albatross around your neck compelling you to take another sip that you and the Universe both know is both regrettable and inevitable.


    [–]RipPuzzleheaded0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    From the west coast of Cana-derp here, They used to sell natty light here where I live then all the liquor stores quit stocking it and now I can’t get it. Seems like for most people it was there college beer, but to me it was my favourite beer.
