    I always like to have a selection based on ABV. Some 6s, 7s, 8s, etc.

    Always try and have certain styles available. Mainly Tripels, Double IPAs, and RISs.

    Always: SNPA, Harpoon UFO of some other wheat beer (for my wife), some Guinness, a few Coronas, a few Pilsner Urquells and a large assortment of randomness.

    For serious on the Reality Czech? I would love to trade you for a growler of that. That beer has been on my wish lust for years. Cheers.

    I like changing it up too much to have regular beers.

    I try to keep something Lagunitas in the fridge at all times and Sixpoint Resin will probably be in there a lot.

    If I lived in VT, Heady Topper would be in there most of the time. Alas, I do not... :(

    I usually keep some gateway craft beer in the fridge for non-beer geek guests. Alasakan Amber, Bombshell Blonde, etc.

    I'm legitimately curious about this - why would anyone drink O'Doul's? Its a terrible beer, so doesn't offer any beer-geek appeal, and it has no alcohol so doesn't offer anything there. Why not just good root beer or ginger ale or something?

    My mom's friend's husband was an alcoholic but hasn't drank beer for years. He drinks O'Doul's as a substitute. That's the only time I could maybe seeing it having a purpose, but still.

    Breckenridge Vanilla Porter
    La Fin Du Mond
    Vitus

    All have regular shelf space in my fridge and Laughing Dogs Anubis Imperial Coffee Porter is fast becoming a constant 4th if I would keep from drinking them as quick as I have been buying them.

    As for company coming by, I always have Labatt's Blue, Bud and Miller in the fridge for them since I'm not drinking it.
