No need to wait for happy hour to have a great beer without dishing out lots of dollars. Here are bars that offer affordable cold ones from when they open their doors until they lock up for the night (Eater's defining "cheap" here as several options in the $3-$6 range). There's no need to rush from the office to score the daily deal with these bars. For only a Hamilton, drinkers can get a beer, pay the tax, leave the bartender a decent tip, and still have something left over for another round. And with more bars on the horizon, who's to say there won't be more budget-friendly bars added to this list? Cheers to that!

Readers, share other favorite spots for cheap beer in the comments.
