    Those of you that drink beer. What's in your fridge?

    I'm partial to the Shiner offerings... Shiner Bock is an all time favorite. Shiner Black Lager isn't bad. Shiner Blonde...OK

    Fosters and Dos Equis have been known to sneak in as well.

    Can't say I am a big fan of the normal commercial American offerings but I'll down one with a friend in the driveway anytime.

    How about you guys?

    I have 1 Warsteiner lager in the fridge at the moment.

    I like Bass Ale, Dos Equis, Chimay Red, Young's Oatmeal Stout, Guiness, etc. I like a wide variety of beers, but I'm not big on strong hops beers.

    I seem to gravitate to the German inspired beers brewed in Texas and Mexico. Most of the good ones were recipes brought over here by German immigrants. I'm always willing to try new stuff... Like that variety of "interesting" stuff you brought down one night.

    Uh... yeah. :eek:

    You've gone out of your way to bring up two of my favorite topics. Guns and beer. I'll leave the other two for your imagination.

    Best beer: Free

    Cheap Beer: Keystone light is the same as Coors light with generic pricing.

    Good substitute: I call it "PMC" or "Poor Man's Corona" Take Miller MGD and add lime. You can't tell the difference. (salt the rim)

    Now, the good stuff. Shiner variety pack in the frig now. Really prefer micro brews. Fosters is my backup for all occasions.

    Guiness is best in Ireland. Ask what time the keg was tapped. They won't be offended. Must be fresh. Also, a good "Black and Tan" Guiness with Bass.

    Did you really want to know that much?

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to get to the store to buy more!

    Right now in my fridge I have Shiner Blonde and Negra Modelo but only a few of each.

    Right now I have coors, shiner bock, shiner hefewiezen, apricot wiezen, and tequiza (sp?) in my beer fridge. I like a lot of the shiners, ziegen is alright, coors/keystone for cheap, and almost anything when its free. Miller gives me a headache.

    I became a fan of Ziegen in 29 Palms. Somehow the CG there had the hookup, and had it stocked at the 7 day on base. "Alittle taste of home."

    I can't ingest anything that has the nickname of "the silver bullet". Just can't get around the fact that they call thermometer that go in your anus a silver bullet.

    Usually I have some form of Dogfish Head, Guiness, Ziegen, or lovely Chimay Red in the fridge.

    I agree with Hobie though. Guiness in the US aint Guiness. Ireland is where its best.

    Shiner seems to be a common thread here. I'm with peacekeeper on the silver bullet... If I wanted soured water I'd drink soured water. Much like a lot of the other mass marketed products in this country, the beer giants generally suck.

    Any wine drinkers out there?

    Only if its wet. Can't stand dry wine. White zinfandel mostly because its cheap. Tried a plum wine at a Japenese steak house in Lufkin, it was pretty good.

    I'm fond of BillyGoat Hill Chardonnay from Australia or Le Grand Noir Chardonnay - Viognier from France myself. Not too sweet but quite tasty.

    Not exactly opposed to Captain Morgan or Schmirnoff either come to think of it!

    WTF?
