Default What's on tap?

So I know that there are a vast number of people here with kegerators. I am geting one soon and trying to prepare accordingly. I'm curious what others keep on tap. Do you have a "guideline" that you follow for what you have in kegs, or do you just wing it? Like do you always have an IPA and a lager, or a hoppy beer and a malty beer? What do you all go by? Thanks!

I do not have a keggerator, but if I did this is what I would keep on tap.

IPA
Stout
Lagar
Fruit beer (not for me, for SWMBO and her friends)

I'm a bit of a hophead... I have a hoppy pale ale, a lawnmower american wheat, and another wheat that is carbing up. I usually try to keep at least two taps with something "regular." One tap can be experimental (imperial pumpkin, 120, lambic, etc, etc.)

What I am in the mood for, and whatever is ready are the primary guidelines. I keep at least one wheat on tap, the rest is a mix.

Right now:

Amber Lager (almost gone)
Cream Ale
Light Lager
Dunkel Weiss
Cherry Wheat

Alt (aging in the back)

Next up:

Small Amber Ale
Blond Ale
Bock
Hefe

I want two totally different beers at all times, so I'll do a hoppy and a malty.

Like an IPA and a brown, or an APA and a Dead Guy clone. Or an IPA and a maibock. Totally different choices, but I always have a hoppy beer on tap.

I always have homebrew rootbeer on tap in one keg. In the other two I keep more easy drinking beers, right now I have a fat tire clone and the other will soon have an Irish red ale.

I always try to keep a nice quaffable Pale Ale & a Stout or Porter. The other two kegs will vary depending on mood/season.
