Had a pair of Old Stocks last night on a whim (12,13) and it got me thinking about my cellar essentials. Not overly expensive and readily available, I almost always have a pair of Old Stocks downstairs. I like to do this because I can drink them as I please and it's not like saying goodbye to a loved one for a year when you decide to drink that bottle of Rare. They are also delicious fresh and get even better with age IMO. I also do this with Troegenator, Skull Splitter and Mcewan's Scotch ale as they meet the same criteria, although I never keep these for more than a few months. So my question to you is, what are your cellar essentials? Brews that you always have in stock that get you through the days and keep you from tapping into anything to special to soon.
