    Even with 12 packs, it's an expensive habit. But so is the entire craft scene, I suppose.

    St Pauli Girl Lager. Always good & reliable.

    Also - Sierra Nevada Summerfest & Celebration 12 packs during their respective seasons.

    All day and sumpin as every day beers? Are you wishing they weren't seasonal?

    Nice fresh Lagunitas Pale Ale
    Pale 31
    Blind Pig at a 6% IPA is a winner in my book!

    But do have a response to OP's question - or would you rather just slam his opinion?

    Mine BTW would be Sumpin' Sumpin'.
    Shit rocks!

    I would love to say Sculpin also but it's a little pricey for me "everyday" ($18 for a six pack of cans or bottles here)

    I pretty much always have a growler or two of Ruination on hand because I'm only like 15 minutes from the brewery...

    ...and you may hate me for this but I always have Corona in my fridge also :slight_smile:

    If I could get it easy it would be something from Jack's Abby, Leisure Time or HU or when it comes out in cans it would be Westbrook Gose.

    I find a new one about every month or so, when I make it myself.

    Actually listening to the album in your avatar right now! And I dig the Mitch Hedberg reference.

    I think English pale ales are great everyday beers, though I don't have any in my fridge right now. I should pick up some London Pride or Sam Smith's Organic Best Ale.

    As far as local brews go, I love well made lagers so Prima Pils and Stoudt's Pils/Gold are good every day beers for me. Though I don't have any of these in my fridge now either :confused:.

    Houston area favs: Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale (6.3 ABV, $5.88 for a 4-pack of 16 ouncers) and Karbach Hopadillo IPA (6.6 ABV, $6.99 a sixer on sale). Both are local, delicious, and regulars in my fridge. Schlitz is starting to make appearances as well.

    Yuengling Lager.

    I have been trying ever since moving out to Colorado to find a local replacement (since we don't get Yuengling out here) and have had no luck. Odell's Loose Leaf would probably be the candidate to do the trick for me but given that it is only offered as a trio in their variety 12 pack, it is not practically suited for that role at all. If they ever start offering sixers or twelvers of it and priced it fairly however.....

    And if Deschutes Red Chair wasn't a seasonal....

    Not a fan of that beer at all, personally.

    Plus, for an everyday beer I need something a little less malty. I am a big malty beer fan, but to drink malt bombs on an everyday kinda basis, I would quickly burn myself out on that beer. I need to something crisper and lighter.

    For me it's All Day IPA or Westbrook IPA. Both are around 10 bucks a six pack and very easy to find.

    FOUNDERS may have gone year round with the ALL DAY....I was told by my distributor here in CT that it was seasonal and unavailable in April and May, but, last week, he gave me the green light, so's I stocked up on a keg!

    I could drink Guinness all day, btw. All. Day!

    Founders' All-Day IPA *is* seasonal, so count me as dumb for even considering it.

    Speaking of seasonals, Karbach's Love Street kolsch has rapidly become my favorite everyday beer for the moment. I'm on my second six-pack and foresee a few more six-packs running through my fridge ...
