    I am tired of drinking the beer I brew, All the IPA's I am IPAed Out. Tired of Porters, Stouts anything Sam Adams. I love SNPA but I am tired of that. I did try Dales Pale Ale and Pilsner but I had a case of each and I am getting tired of that. Maybe Ill just try gaterade for a while. After 55 years of brewing and drinking beer I am Hopped out!!!!!!!!!!

    I have the terrible habit of buying more outstanding beer than I typically consume. However, I always buy the following when away from my place:

    Half Acre - Daisy Cutter
    Founders - All day IPA
    3 Floyds - Alpha King
    Revolution - Anti-hero
    Bell's - Two-Hearted

    I didn't think a lot of Founders AllDay IPA. But after hauling 5 tons of river rock with my son for landscaping this afternoon, that was a Damn tasty brew! Very refreshing.

    Long Trail Ale is the staple, although Rogue Dead Guy is a close second.
    American IPAs - C-N Celebration, LT Limbo, Alchemist Focal Banger (I wish!)

    Lagunitas Little Sumpin Sumpin, Harpoon IPA and Sierra Nevada PA. For stouts, Magic Hat Heart of Darkness. Narragansett Porter too. I'm only listing beers that are in virtually every store here in MA and are under $10.

    So is that the reason you came on here , to give us shit about drinking Sam Adams? My palate has changed quite a bit since I made this post about a year and a half ago so just go crawl back under your rock and stay there!

    I really enjoy the One They Call Zoe by Hops and Grain (Austin, TX). Price isn't bad either at around $8-$9 per 6.

    There is some Lagers in there too:p. Nothing like drinking a few that brings full on Nostalgia to your dome everyday! Of course I like to venture out and try something new. These though have tested the sands of time, and have been proven worthy.

    I can't get GL here, actually I wait for my yearly visit to KY to enjoy Eddy Fitz. Also grabbing Founders while there is also a plus.

    Everyday stuff to me would be Sierra Nevada 12-packs and Smuttynose Finestkind 12-packs. I also keep a case of some kind of AAL in the basement that I go thru slowly. Right now it's High Life, probably switch to Narragansett next time. Other than keeping costs down, the IPAs really pop after a couple days of AALs.

    When nothing excites me I drink Miller Lite, why waste great beer because your burned out on it and not enjoying it? I'd say Two Hearted Ale, but a steady diet burns me out. With beach week 3 weeks away I'm drinking shit beers until then and I'm taking a case + of HT with me. Should really hit the spot, I'll burn out in Myrtle Beach for the week then switch to bourbon when in Charleston. Bought a 12er of Genny light yesterday, i expect it to be exactly what I'm looking for as a 3 week filler, cheapest beer I could find except National Bohemian.

    I'm always changing up my go to beer, but right now it Anderson valley gose in cans. So easy to drink and finally a decent gose sold in my area for summer. I'll have a different option in a few weeks, because I'm flaky like that with my craft beer.

    Those are prohibitively expensive for "easy drinking everyday" beers. Now if I could get Orval for $1.50/bottle like they can get in Belgium, I probably wouldn't bother drinking anything else.

    If I am drinking that day, you can rest assured I will have at least 1 Dirtwolf...or like Saturday 7. Steady supply is always in the fridge.

    Christ, that's cheaper than cost in MA. Not fair.
