    I know from previous threads that there a few beer aficionados here. And it's been a while since a beer related thread. So, devotees, what's in your fridge?
    My current selection:
    Murphy's Irish Stout
    Guinness Draught
    North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout
    Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    Mendicino Black Hawk Stout
    Mackeson Triple Stout
    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
    Orchard Street Pale Ale
    Fat Weasel Pale Ale
    Rogue Dead Guy Ale (MaierBock)
    Orchard Street Stock Ale
    Rogue Oregon Golden Ale
    Fat Weasel Lager
    Orchard Street Porter
    Widmer Brothers Hefeweizen
    MacTarnahan's Oregon Honey Beer
    What's missing:
    Fuller's Extra Special Bitter (my favorite non-stout beer)
    Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar
    Newcastle Brown Ale
    Fuller's Porter
    Rogue Mocha Porter
    Rogue Shakespeare Stout
    Pyramid Snowcap Ale
    I had to take one off the list because I drank the last one earlier, and it's not a staple so it's not on the missing list. And I'd like to lay claim to a Duvel offering, but I can't. [​IMG]

    oops I lied. I found a rogue Kokanee in the crisper. I sometimes hide beer in there from my roomates.

    Enjoy the damn thing before someone else does.

    I've no one else swiping my stash, thus the list. The lady of this house is disinterested, we share a wine thing... I buy the beer, she the wine. I drink the beer, we the wine. Works out pretty good. We both stock and partake of the liquor cabinet.

    I WISH I had a growler of Fordham Oyster Stout in my fridge, brewed right here in Annapolis. They don't bottle it, so the 1/2 gallon growlers are very fresh (you pay 5.00 deposit for the bottle and bring it back for refills).

    9:30AM on Saturday and I'm salivating for a stout.... Thanks Guys ! Looks like I'm heading downtown later today.

    "I found a rogue Kokanee in the crisper" I just hope it's the stuff brewed in BC, the stuff we get in Ontario is crap.

    Mine pales in comparison:
    Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    Newcastle Brown Ale
    Pete's Wicked Winter Brew
    Shiner Winter Ale
    Of course, being a good Texan, you can always find some Shiner Bock around my place!! [​IMG]

    Ron-P, you're a true beer aficianado. You and I would hit it off big time if ever we were to meet in person. Gotta love those microbrews, eh?

    In my 'fridge the Mexican fixation continues: two twelve-packs of Tecate and one twelve-pack of Pacifico.

    For a long time, I loved the Japanese stuff, particularly Sapporo. But its ability to survive shipment unscathed is variable, indicating the too many distributors let the beer sit at room temp and then let it cool and then sit at room temp again.

    Imports, therefore, can be a risky business. I used to love St. Pauli Girl from Germany--but it arrived at my store in decent shape about thirty percent of the time.

    Actually, my beer preferences go through phases. I like Tecate right now because of its good mix of taste, aftertaste, lightness and alcohol content. Sometimes, in a can, it can taste stale. But, then, it's that import thingy again.

    Pacifico is more full-bodied, and I like it on weekends.

    My lady-friend and I have recently discovered Pacifico and simply can't get enough of it.

    Craig S, I'd strongly recommend three of your four beers, I haven't had the Shiner Winter Ale. It's quality not quantity though, and there are a few brews in my fridge that I won't pick up again for a while. That's just what's in there.

    Btw, being in Austin a lot over the years I've had much Shiner Bock, but I'm not too keen on it. Being baited back for SXSW this year, and if I go one of my goals is not to touch the stuff.

    Ron-P, another Orchard Brewing fan? Cool. With that and Sierra Nevada we have the two preeminent West Coast style Pale Ales cornered. Have you had Orchard's Stock Ale? One of my favorite beers, that and their Pale Ale are a steal at Trader Joe's for $4.99/6pk. Being an E.S.B. fan, I'm going to have to try that Belk's you have, which is also available at TJ's.

    Me too, Peter. I love this red-ale craze. Ever try Bulldog? Is it distributed where you live?

    Yes Brent, it is the real "glacier fresh taste" from the Kooteney's. Not the stuff brewed here in town by Labatt's. The thing is though that there isn't a glacier near Cresten, B.C. for probably 50 miles
