    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Don't have one. I like variety. I rarely drink the same beer two days in a row.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    Fresh Squeezed
    Fist City
    Sucks
    Brickstone APA
    Scrimshaw
    Prima Pils
    Krankshaft
    Eddy Fitz
    Black Butte
    Hennepin

    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.
