    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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. :grimacing: What can I say I grew up in a house where PBR was a staple. :grinning:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:
    Sea Hag
    Ruination
    Deviant Dales
    Ten Fidy

    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.

    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.
