    Despite my love of all things German and malty, whenever funds are tight and/or I need a solid party beer, I'm reaching for a 12 pack of Yuengling lager. Never disappoints.

    If I had a go-to it'd be Heady but it's too costly and unavailable so i try to always have a homebrewed IPA in the Keg.

    Yes to SNPA, 1980 was a very good year. GI IPA. GI bottled in Chicago, only. Old Rasputin, Pride and Joy, and Southern Tier 2XIPA. Consume at your risk.

    It depends on current disposable income for me as well.
    If I'm spendy, Simtra or Hoptologist.
    If I'm medium spendy, Sculpin.
    If I'm running on empty, Torpedo!

    If I had regular access to Odell I would be drinking Odell IPA and Myrcenary DIPA constantly.

    Cigar City Tocobaga Red is one for me, just not aaaalways easy to find. But usually around and otherwise I'll go with Jai Alai.

    Founders Red's Rye was my old go to alongside Two Hearted when I was in Michigan.
  22. MrWilliams

    MrWilliams Nov 24, 2013 Arizona

    Left Hand Milk Stout when its chilly, CCB FL Cracker when it's hot out, though Jai Alai might close the gap during summer time.

    Used to be Smuttynose Finest Kind.

    Now I go with Hoponious Union. Allagash white is a good blind/panic buy always too, less concern over freshness.

    If it was cheaper, I'd have it more often....but amazing beer! ($13.99 four pack in Raleigh)
  25. finsfan

    finsfan Jan 27, 2014 Kansas

    Elevated IPA after coming back from NM 3-4 times a year.
    ODELL MYRCENARY! How was that not covered already.
    Tallgrass Ethos, excellent, piney hop bomb that is underrated.
    And the following. I may be a little biased, but that beer is about as good as Moo-Hoo. Plus its only $2.25 including tax for 16 oz, cant beat that.

    Smuttynose Finest Kind - always so drinkable
    But their Durty is my latest go to until it is gone for the season. Love it

    Modern Times Blazing World is becoming my new go-to. I love the 16oz can format, and it's such a recently-available beer in my area that it's fresh by default.

    Jai Alai or Maduro Brown depending on my mood. Cant really beat it.

    Any of the Full Sail Session beers for lagers and Mid Mountain Mild Ale by Epic Brewing for my ale needs...

    All inexpensive, all tasty, all relatively low ABV for 'long-term' drinking sessions...

    Colder months its Founders Porter, rest of the year its All Day IPA, although Jai Alai and Centennial IPA are a close second.

    Go to would be Victory Dirtwolf now that it's out and available year round. Green Flash Le freak or Ruination following close behind. If im grabbing a growler its usually East End Big Hop or the Harvest Hop when its available in the fall.

    I realized I don't really have a go-to beer anymore. The only one that sort of comes to mind would be Founders Porter, but I haven't even had one of those in several months. I have some go-to breweries for sure. Founders, Short's, Weihenstephaner, The Bruery, and I'll give a shot at anything that Oddside puts out to keep things interesting.
