Default Whats in your fridge?

I'm on my 3rd home brew, and plan to keep chuggin out 5 gallons every 2-4 weeks or so, but I still have just as much desire to buy 6 packs of flying dog, new belgiums, dogfish heads, etc...

does your homebrew satisfy all of you beer needs, or do you still buy retail beers?

Just curious.


An inventory of my beer fridge:

Abita Turbodog - 2
Abita Restoration Pale Ale - 1
Abita Amber - 2
Abita Purple Haze - 2
Abita Jockamo - 1
Abita Red Ale - 1
Avery IPA - 4
Bear Republic Racer 5 22oz. - 1
Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye Ale 22oz. - 1
Boulevard Bully Porter - 1
Boulevard Dry Stout - 1
Bridgeport IPA - 5
Bridgeport Ebenezer Ale - 1
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA - 2
Flying Dog Doggy Style Pale Ale - 1
Flying Dog Old Scratch Amber - 1
Flying Dog Snake Bite IPA - 2
Flying Dog Kerberos Tripel - 1
Great Divide Fresh Hop Ale 22oz. - 1
Michelob Porter - 3
New Belgium Fat Tire - 2
New Belgium Trippel - 3
Pyramid Apricot Ale - 1
Shiner Smokehaus - 4
Shiner Black - 1
Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale - 2
Victory Hop Devil - 5
Widmer Broken Halo - 5


Homebrews:
Hefeweizen - two 12oz. and five 22oz. (first batch)
IPA - will bottle in 10 days,

I think I may run out of room!!

Wow that is some impressive list you got there. I'd be happy to come over and help you drink some of that to make room for your homebrew if you'd like.

House Fridge Micro:
Abita Party Pack - 1
Flying Dog Mixed Pack - 1
Flying Dog Gonzo Porter - 2
Sierra Nevada Porter - 6
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot - 3
Unibroue La Fin Du Monde - 2
Unibroue Trois Pistols - 1
Unibroue Maudite - 2
Rogue Deadguy - 3
Rogue Shakespear Stout - 1 22oz

House Fridge Homebrew:
Porter Schmorter - 2
Focktoberfest - 12 22oz
Shameless Stout - 2 1L
May the Schwartz Beer With You - 8 1L

Outside Brewery Fridge (Future Kegerator):

i love to have the variety.. as you know, those mix packs are great, abita and flying dog i have in mine.. that accounts for a lot of those singles. I buy the michelob, boulevard, shiner and new belgium varieties on occasion as well.

I'll have to do an inventory tonight when I get home, but last time I checked I had 68 commercial beers in my fridge. I still occasionally notice that I'll have a greater selection than the better bars around here.

I don't have a dedicated beer fridge, so my space is quite limited. At any given time I've usually got maybe 4-5 commercial beers and a similar variety of homebrews stocked in mine.

Currently I have:

Commercial:
Angel City IPA
Avery Collaboration Not Litigation
Deschutes Inversion IPA
Hoegaarden
New Belgium Skinny Dip
New Belgium Mothership Wit

Homebrew:
Drunken IPA
Pale Ale Experiment
Strawberry Alarm Clock v3
Tres Equis v2
Wit Zombie

My wife likes wits so I generally have a bunch of commercial variants sitting around. We have half a bunch of Hoegaarden in addition to the ones in the fridge, and a whole unopened box of Lost Coast Great White.

You guys make me pine for the day when I can buy a house and build my basement bar. My fridge has 0 beers! But that will change when my latest brew is "done" conditioning, probably tomorrow.

Hmm...I think I was addicted to buying new beers for a while...I would go to Binnys and tell myself, "just 1 six pack"...I'd walk out with 3 usually haha. My buddy goes with me most of the time and it's not uncommon for us to walk out with 6-8 six packs that we have not had before. I cut back recently so I've got:

New Belgium Fat tire
Bass
Pizza Beer
Red Hook Longhammer IPA
Red Hook Sunrye Summer Ale
Killians (for the lady)
Bear Republic Racer 5
Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye
Arcadia Jaw Jacker
Sand Creek Wild Ride IPA
Two Brothers The Bitter End
Victory Hop Devil
Sam Adams Pale Ale
LaRossa
Harpoon IPA
Big Sky IPA
Backdraft Brown Ale
Bells Oberon
Bells Pale Ale
Bells Amber Ale

Homebrew:
Jaskin IPA
My IPA
IPA
Octoberfest
Fat Tire Clone
Honey Kolsch
Cream Ale (NB kit)
Dank's Wheat Beer

And in the keezer...half a keg of My Strong Honey Blonde Ale.
That's all I can remember off-hand. About 1-3 of any given type listed above.

And a note to Kyleobie; you don't need a house, I live in an apartment and all this except the keg is in the fridge. I like to cook so I buy fresh ingredients almost daily so I really don't store much food in my fridge. And if you are determined enough, you will stick a chest freezer in your dining room just so you can have kegs on tap lol. I go at this hobby full force.

theman.. how is that fat tire clone, is it from austinhomebrew? I have it my cart right now.. trying to decide.

Yeh I have all my detailed info because I recently decided to keep track of what I buy and whether or not I like it. It's in excel. I also have columns for abv, ibu's and beer type

I'm an excel nerd, if it can be made into a chart, I will do it. This worksheet is in same file as my batch notes. Each batch has its own worksheet with all info: amounts, prices, dates, boiling times, etc..

Then another worksheet has a running tab of all the equipment I've purchased.

All this in 1 file named beer.xls
