    I try to keep 1 Sam Adams brew, usually the Cream Stout or O'fest. I also try to keep some Sam Smith Oatmeal in the fridge. When I have a chance, I'll pick up a few Maine Beer Co. Zoe's too. For the winter it'll be Founders Breakfast Stout and possibly Backwoods Bastard, SN Celebration and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

    And there's always Yuengling regular and premium in my in-laws fridge

    I usually just have a veriety of seasonals in the fridge. When all else fails, a sixer of Dynamo Copper Lager from Metropolitan Brewing or some Goose Island Honker's Ale will suffice.

    Since I have been in the Chicago area Revolution Eugene Porter and Half Acre Gossamer Golden Ale.

    I know, I know... "How is your entire fridge not full of Daisy cutter?" Simple, it gets old.

    I usually always Tocobaga and what ever CCB limited or seasonal release that is out at the time. I try and always have some FBS when it'd available and about once a month i get a FFF package that always has at least 1 sixes of ZD.

    I use to have a 24 of coors light lying around, or blue dry, or bud , but then again i was afraid it gone bad after spending so much time in the house. I finally stopped buy crap beer, and going for better beer for guest ... I was attending a birthday party i someone drinking wine saw mw drinking a stout, a freaking awesome stout. She tasted it ... and told me i was drinking beer like if it was a great wine , and i said, youre so right on the spot !!!

    Two-Hearted, Torpedo, Modus Hoperandi and Schlafly Dry-Hopped APA all make rotating appearances but mostly I find a seasonal I enjoy and get the most out of it while it's around. It was Schlafly AIPA, then their Pumpkin Ale, now Big Muddy's (my local) pumpkin ale followed by some wet hop ales I'm sure and after trying at a fest this weekend, every damn bottle of Schlafly TIPA that I can get my hands on.

    Founders Seasonal/Centennial. Whatever new seasonal Short's released that week ;)

    Whatever my last batch was, could be any style I felt like brewing that month. This month I have a Foreign Stout and Belgian Blonde in there, along with whatever stragglers are left of my Rye IPA from 3 months ago.

    Newcastle, different seasonals, Stone AB or IPA when I can get it. I usually try to get something that I haven't tried before when I can get to a store that has a really good selection.

    i don't keep any 'regular' beers on, partly because since i started working at a beer bar i don't drink at home too often, but more because i like rotating my beer based on season, availability, and what looks interesting. i do keep lots of homebrew, but even that rotates pretty extensively. so far i've done about 20 batches and have only repeated two recipes.

    I keep Coors Light and ODouls on hand for the 2 friends that stop over regularly. If other guests are coming over I'll throw some Sierra Nevada in there or something. I usually try to keep the good stuff hidden

    You didn't make a mistake. Your "family member" abused your hospitality. How inappropriate to go into a hosts refrigerator without asking, then to actually take something out without asking. It appears to be an overdeveloped sense of entitlement. I hope there was a gentle explanation on your part and then an apology from your visitor.

    The following beers are almost always in the fridge:
    Kern River Just Outstanding: Hop bomb fix!
    Old Rasputin: Can't go wrong!
    Anchor Steam: I feel like a beer but I don't know what to drink...
    Parabola: Steak dinner, celebration, or just for the heck of it!
    Any Russian River -ation beer: Dinner with my girlfriend!
    Corona: Just got off work and I don't want to think about beer, also I feel like drinking upwards of ten beers tonight and having at least one solid cigar!
    Coors Light: I feel like drinking more than 10 beers tonight and probably smoking a couple of good cigars!
