    Always have Genny Cream Ale on hand and lately Genny 12 Horse. I think there is some Labatts that got left here out in the garage as well.

    I always have New Glarus Spotted Cow in the beer fridge. Nothing special but yet very drinkable.

    Coors Light. Everyone else not into craft seems to get along with it.

    I'm living with my in-laws at the moment and my father in law is a bud light lime drinker so that is in the fridgd at the moment. Before we moved I kept bud lights in the fridge for my father in law and brother in law. Every once in a while I like to get some high life or gansetts to have when I want to throw a few back and it's a pretty universal option for the non craft folk.

    Bud Light, my brother and dad don't like craft/microbrews, so I keep that in the downstairs fridge.

    Have FFF Zombie Dust and Goose Island Mild Winter. Usually friends bring their own if they want something on the lower end. My fridge will never consist of such items.

    Right now, it is Miller Lite shorties (bought for my sister-in-law), but I also have a lone Berghoff Oktoberfest left (was $8.99/12).

    I usually have highlife on hand. I usually dont have more than 3 craft beers in a night. If I feel like drinking more I'll switch to highlife.

    I also have homebrew thats a bit cheaper to make than most craft.

    Best quote I've ever read:

    " all beer is good. Some beer is better, but all beer is good.”

    With that being said, I usually have some bud light next to my three Floyd's or founders... There I said it

    Within my circle of friends, BYO is a given. Not in a bad host sort of way, it's just that we all have such a varied taste in beer that it's easier to bring what you like.
  24. TravisR

    TravisR Initiate (116) Dec 31, 2012 New Jersey

    Usually Flying Fish Hop and RedFish because they're local and and reasonably priced around me.

    I keep Yeungling in my fridge as a decoy beer. When someone opens up the fridge and doesn't recognize any of the bottles, they'll likely grab a Yuengling because it's the only thing that looks familiar.

    I think I will start keeping Narragansett around. Might as well keep it reasonably local. Right now, Blue Moon is around and my cheapest six pack otherwise is Celebration, which some guests actually liked! Used to keep Sam Adams variety packs, but never get around to finishing them when the company leaves.

    No cheap beer in my fridge. Sorry guys! I have great distribution and I don't buy cheap beer. I let my friends do that and I drink their beer!!
  33. GodlessWatermelon

    GodlessWatermelon Initiate (0) Apr 12, 2012 Maryland

    Shocktop Lemon Shandy because I got a case for $11. Not very good, but it's about what I expected and I can't complain for that price.

    The cheapest stuff you'll ever find in my fridge:

    Firestone Walker/TJ's Mission St PA 6.99/6
    New Glarus Moon Man 7.68/6
    SA Boston Lager 12.99/12

    Other than that...I do have some (literally) 2008 Michelob in the vegetable crisper.

    SN, Lagunitas are usually the cheapest I have. If you don't like that then bring a case of what you like.

    Oddly enough my brother likes Kona Big Wave so I may purchase that for family and friends at times. Otherwise they can bring their own shitty Mexican beer.

    Cheapest beer in my fridge right now is Founders Centennial at around $10 a 6 pack. Now that New Belgium is in MI, I sometimes grab the Ranger IPA which can be under $8 a 6 pack on sale. Never go cheaper than that. I would say the Sam Adams 6 packs are the baseline. I do enjoy buying the 12 pack variety stuff from time to time.

    My mothers husband brings his own High Life because it is the "Champagne of Beers" and leaves the extras for me thinking I might drink them. The only thing I will buy is when we have my buddy and his wife over who love their Miller Lite. They usually bring their own too because as she says, "You only drink that weird stuff."

    Buid Light, Miller Lite, Coors Light, all left over from a party in September. I've given a few away here and there but nobody really comes over enough to drink all of it.
