With the economy in the dumps, two Fullerton college students have joined forces to save a buck or ten when it comes to beer. David Echanique (Cal State Fullerton) and Brandon McKenney (Orange Coast Community College) last week announced ThriftyBeer.com, a website where you input your city or neighborhood and it outputs the top ten locations that have cheap beer (with a Google Map, too). In Hollywood, for example, you can 30 Bud Lights for $16.99 at CVS. In Van Nuys, it's a dollar cheaper at Smart & Final. Originally, they thought of doing it just for Fullerton. “I saw the bigger picture,” Echanique told the OC Register. “We should do all of Southern California." However, they now hope to expand listings into Northern California and Arizona by summer’s end. Give it a whirl and see if it's truly the cheapest around your neighborhood (and let us know by commenting below)
