DFH 90 Minute
Deviant Dales IPA
This. Sometimes i'll buy a Rochefort if I don't want a bomber as its near impossible to find Abt 12 in 330ml bottles in Texas.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Great Basin Icky (Local)
Brewery...Jacks Abby but I am not loyal to any particular brew. Smoke and Dagger is probably the most frequent, Copper Legend the least. There is always at least one JA brew in the house. I am still somewhat in discovery mode and faves come and go to an extent, but if Jacks Abby makes it and I can find it, I'm drinking it. I am finding more and more perfectly fine local offerings if you consider New England local and that does test the loyalty.
I agree with the comments about the lack f repeat purchases potentially having a negative effect.
If I'm just standing there and can't find anything new I usually just grab one of these.
Red & White
Enjoy by (usually buy about 3 each go round)
Just about anything Thomas Creek....
I'll buy whatever craft beer I like that's on sale. I'm weird that way. So as a result, I find myself buying these often:
Karbach Hopadillo IPA
Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale
Saint Arnold Seasonal 12-packs
Sierra Nevada Torpedo 12-pack
Sierra Nevada Seasonal 12-packs
Ballast Point Sculpin
Sierra Nevada Torpedo
Stone Pale Ale
Long Trail Double Bag because its only 7.99 at 7.2% ABV and its pretty decent. Also whatever the current Narragansett seasonal is I buy a lot. Sixer of 16 ounce tall cans for 8 bucks is a good deal.
Unbeatable price/quality ratio, imho.
if people are consuming craft beer, the craft beer industry is doing fine. i wouldn't worry any more than that.
Victory at Sea
It depends upon how we define "regularly" (as in the title of this thread, "Beer You Buy Regularly"). I think about "regularly" as something I can do very often, such as year-round, but I suppose it's also possible that we could say that buying a certain seasonal each year is also a "regular" behavior. (Ah, semantics!) Therefore, I'll answer the question both ways.
Beer I buy year-round and always have in my fridge: Myrcenary, Old Rasputin, Sculpin
Beer I buy every year when released: Boulevard's Nutcracker; 4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout; Founders Breakfast Stout; Odell's St. Lupulin; Goose Island's BCBS; Perennial's Abraxas; and now that it's annual, Stone's RuinTen.
Samuel Adams currently running seasonal brew (Like all four).
Will probably try to have Southern Tier Pumking & Crème Brulee year round in fridge.
Great post! I've got a few I pretty much always have on hand. I'll switch styles, but the usual suspects are Ommegang, Schell's, Surly, Jolly Pumpkin, Southern Tier, Petrus... I almost always replenish when I'm out on these guys.
Up until last year Pabst Blue Ribbon was always in my fridge. What can I say I grew up in a house where PBR was a staple.
What he said
My most common buys are Sam Adams Lager, Sam Adams seasonal/variety packs, Weinstephaner Hefeweizen and St Bernadus Abt 12.
Otherwise I have a lot of usual suspects but I like to branch out.
Sam Adams winter collection is really good this year. The Juniper IPA is better and more distinctive than the Holiday Porter it replaced. Though I did like Chocolate Bock better than Cherry Chocolate Bock, can't go wrong with Old Fezewig.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale...been a go-to for years.
Oskar Blues Dale's Pale. Other than that I have seasonal regulars such as Bell's Hopslam, SN Celebration, Ten Fidy, Frankenmuth Dunkel, etc... and with seemingly 5 new breweries on the shelf each month I always have something new to try.
Dogfish Head 90 Min IPA
Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA
Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout
Great Divide - Titan IPA, Hercules Double IPA
Sierra Nevada Celebration when available
Always: Hop Stoopid
Most of the time: Stone IPA and Racer 5
Double Jack & Union
West Coast IPA
Sublimely Self Righteous
Stone IPA and Ruination
If distribution in my area
Gandhi Bot ( very accessible here...it sits...!!)
Double Jack ( a fresh batch...I'm buying some)
Brooklyn Black Chocolate
The only beer I buy regularly is Hop Stoopid. Can find it everywhere, great price, great DIPA kick. Other than that I mix it up a lot trying new beers as often as I can. And revisiting seasonals especially in this Christmas period.
My goto brewers are shorts, bells, founders, and i really like an up and comer greenbush. I dont make it a point to buy them in support. But, they make incredible products. So, i keep going back to them. Great lakes brewery as well.i
DFH 90 Min
WormTown Be Hoppy or a WormTown Porter or Stout
Trillium Fort Point Pale Ale (Growler) when they have it
Founders All Day IPA
Stillwater Cellar Door
Rising Tide - always something from them, Ursa Minor, Calcutta Cutter, special release
I was drinking Revolution Anti hero regularly but now that Surly Furious is easily available in Chicago area, I drink that regularly. Cans FTW!
I always have:
a Shorts Seasonal on hand, right now I have a little bit of a back up but thats not a bad thing.
Bells Two Hearted
Founders Dirty Bastard
I LOVE Hop Stoopid, it's hard to find in Denver sometimes though, would buy that and lucky 13 consistently if I could.
I am jealous! I had Elevated the one time I had business in NM. I actually had the cab drop me off at the brew pub before heading to the hotel and took a 4 day old 4-pack with me to the hotel. It didn't hurt that the lady serving the beers wasn't hard on the eyes either.
My regs here in CT:
I try to keep it local so a lot of Southern Tier and Saranac but I also get Sierra Nevada quite often because it's the only IPA I can get in 12 packs and IPA's are my staple.
An Ale of sorts..lot of IPA's too.
Black Chocolate Stout,Bitburger,and Hop Notch seem to find their way into my cart,and always add V.I.T.U.S.Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving.
SA Boston Lager is my go to. Locally I support ALL Southern Tier products, Ithaca, and Ommegang quite frequently. Upstate NY is awesome...
Hahaha... Yeah, the breweries here usually have some real talent.
Recently.....Otter Creek Kind Ryed.......Super juicy and less than $9 a six pack.......
Like most of the folks on here, I usually jump around brand-to-brand, style-to-style. I have established some sort of loyalty with Bell's and Goose Island though. Bell's is consistent and has as pretty great selection to go through each year. Goose Island obviously has BCBS but I find myself buying 312 on many occasions. It is complex enough to stand out from run of the mill AALs but subtle enough to appeal to friends and family who are not into the craft beer scene.
