Uinta Hop Nosh
When I was on the east coast, Two Hearted, Hop Devil, and 13 Rebels ESB. In CO, I love Upslope's Lager and Yeti.
It depends on the season. Right now, I've been going through quite a bit of Sam Adam's Boston Lager. In the summer, I often have a good ol' Midwestern staple in the fridge: Grain Belt. I know it's a pretty low-quality beer, but a cold one really hits the spot after coming in from mowing the lawn on a scorching, humid day.
Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA
Odell IPA or Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose
Bent Paddle Pils, Schells Firebrick, Hefe (seasonal)
Mine is Sweetwater 420. Brewed locally in my home state & available on tap at places I frequent.
Odell IPA. When I lived in Arizona it was Lumberyard Red Ale.
BuckleDown Belt & Suspenders. Huge sleeper IPA!
It was one of the first ipas I had and even though it got updated it is even better and Definatly my go to.. When I go to the bottle shop if nothing new I just get more and more.
With all the BCBS talk I'd like to shift the conversation a little to what everyone's favorite every day beer is. I'm always looking for a new IPA or "every day beer" in between popping BCBS or other limited exclusive beers in my stash. Typically I like to stay around the $10 price point since I drink so much and try to save for top shelf bombers. This time of year I'm a fan of New Belgium Accumulation and Sierra Nevada Celebration. Oscar Blues IPA is very solid too. Other suggestions around the $10 six pack price point?
This time of year I like having Fistmas in the fridge at all times.
Zombie dust and moon man are good staple beers to keep in the beer fridge. It's nice living in an area where a short drive can get me both.
I can get Zombie Dust every now and then but unfortunately not frequently enough to consider it an every day beer. It's also typically about $13-$14 a six when I can find it.
Two Hearted by bells is my everyday beer.
Two Hearted Ale 4 life
TG just started putting Golden Nugget into tallboys and at $8.99/4 I've been drinking it nonstop.
Through the winter months, I've also always got a 6pk of Satin Solitude in the fridge.
Homebrew plus occasional hard to find or highly rated seasonals that I can't resist. Recent examples: Zombie Dust, Surly Wet, Death By Coconut, Xocoveza.
Favorite might be a bit of an overstatement, but I have quickly become a fan of Brickstone's Hop Skip. It's around $10/6 pack and it's an extremely aromatic and easy drinking beer. The 7.75% abv is extremely well hidden. It seems like all of the local places as well as some of the grocery stores are carrying it, so it seems like I can always find a six pack.
Daisy Cutter for me
Don't have one. I like variety. I rarely drink the same beer two days in a row.
Can't go wrong with Two Hearted.
Fresh Shorts Space Rock is tits considering its 14.99 for 12
No doubt, Huma. That's my everyday drinker
Don't have a single fallback necessarily, but I'll almost always have one of the following as staples in my fridge:
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Celebration
Bells Two Hearted or Oberon
Revolution Anti-Hero or Fist City
Pipeworks Ninja vs Unicorn or Lizard King
Deschutes Fresh Squeezed
edit: @ratwheels post reminds me that Pipeworks (something) has been a staple more often than not since they started canning. Post ratified for accuracy. Cheers!
Lizard King or Fist City for me.
Pipeworks Ninja vs Unicorn or Blood of the Unicorn or Lizard King. Dated cans so I know they're always a month old or fresher.
In this season: Bell's Christmas.
Lagunitas IPA. Can't beat getting a 1/4 bbl for $75.
I looked at my Untappd checkin count and my highest checkin counts are all IPAs: Arbor Brewing Buzzsaw, Two Hearted, White Rajah, Crooked Tree, and Huma. I would consider any of those to be every day beers. White Rajah remains my favorite though.
Soon to be grapefruit sculpin.. seems so many new and reoccurring excellent local and state brews I definetly don't have a everyday brew..
Later month or two I'd say perrin 98 problems.. besides jai alai my favorite ipa in a can
Vallejo/Heyoka, Lizard King, or Spiteful IPA for me.
This probably won't be too popular given the flurry of IPA's listed, but I like to keep a Kolsch style or Pilsner in the fridge. Atwater has been my go to lately, D-Light Kolsch style or Purple Gang Pilsner. Sierra Nevada Nooner Pilsner is a favorite also, but I can't always find it.
Two Hearted when I can't find 51k
Old Chub! That is one fantastic scotch ale. Obviously it is not on the level of Backwoods Bastard, but I like it more than Dirty Bastard.
Through some trial and error, my other everyday fridge beers (meaning I TRY to always have one six-pack of the below on hand) are:
I find it kind of nice to drink what I don't have to think about too much and just enjoy. Riverwest Stein goes down nice this time of year.
Bells Two Hearted is easily the most frequent for me. Recently, a lot of Odd Side Citra.
Founders Porter if I want something dark, and Founders Breakfast Stout during the winter.
