What do you drink when yer OUT of HB?
I dont have any homebrew ready, of course, but I want a beer. I have a case of Coors light Ive had since my wedding a few years ago. May chill it and drink a few of those. What do you drink if you are OUT of HB and just want a beer?

I brew wine and mead too. SO when the line runs low i can dup unto those and stretch it out.

I have been diggin left hand stout lately. I get into angry orchard hard cider Even bud when im mowing the lawn or wrenching on a car during the summer

I'd take those Coors Lights over a few threads and let them use 'em as targets then look for a local IPA.

Out of homebrew??? Why, that's just crazy talk. :drunk:

I make it a rule never to run out. Came close once, but managed to bring another batch online in just the nick of time. Since then, I picked up a couple more kegs and now make it a point to brew again as soon as one goes dry. With three kegs on tap and 3 to 5 more on reserve and ready to go at a moment's notice, running out of homebrew isn't something I worry about.

About the only time I drink anything other than homebrew is if I'm out, and on those occasions I always go with something from one of the local breweries, with about the only exception being a Negra Modelo when we hit our favorite Mexican restaurant.

GT, you're in Georgia so I would look at offerings from Red Brick and/or Sweetwater. If it's also available, Yazoo's Dos Perros is pretty amazing.

That's what I like, but I'll also buy offerings from BBC, New Belgium, etc.

Ranger IPA is a standby of mine. Also Sierra Neveda: Pale Ale, Torpedo, and when it was available, Hoptimum. But Good Lord, that Hoptimum was deceptive. (10% alcohol was hidden quite well...:drunk:)
Regular standby, Ranger for sure.

Maybe I should have clarified...I'm broke! Lol. If I spend money on beer, it is gonna be the unbrewed kind so I can brew it myself. I just figured since the coors was there...

I like Sierra Nevada torpedo. For two reasons. I can justify buying it cuz it tastes great and once those bottles are empty they clean up nice so I add them to my bottle inventory when i have a batch ready to be bottled
