What commercial beers are in your 'fridge?
I know that we'd all prefer to drink homebrew but let's face it we don't always have what we want or need on-hand. Or, as in my case, just too new to have good homebrew on hand.

I made a beer run this AM to pick up some beers in styles that I enjoy and/or are very popular so that I can experience those beers that are well respected in their category. Here is what is in my beer 'fridge today.

Bear Republic Racer 5 (one bomber, I'll be sharing with my brew buddy to help us in future brewing)
Stone Ruination (one bomber, same reason as above)
North Coast Old Rasputin (4 pack, same reason as above)
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale (6 pack, I love it... and same reason as above)
Pyramid Thunderhead (half a six pack left, future brewing comparison for IPAs)
Pilsner Urquell (1 left from a sixer just a good refreshing beer)
Lagunitas Pils (2 left from a sixer)
Red Stripe (2 left from 6 pack, just sounded good one day, had 2 remembered why I don't often buy it)
Boddingtons pub ale (3 cans from a 4 pack. Been thinking about brewing an common bitter as this is the style my wife likes)
Michelob Ultra (2 bottles left from a 12 pack. Over a year old, left over from a party with Atkins dieters)
Green Light (rolling rock light, 3 left from a 6 pack I bought over the summer when I wanted a really light beer that BMCers would like)
Budweiser (2 cans, I have no idea when those snuck into the ice box, kinda scary really.
O'Douls (1 bottle, I have no idea where this one came from either)
Cock & Bull (1 bottle left from a sixer, not really a beer. My MIL is fond of Moscow Mules)

My pipeline is going to be dry after my Oktoberfest goes and before my IPA is ready, so I've got:

Edenton St. Pumpkinhead => really enjoy
Magic Hat Jinx => not doing it for me
SN Celebration => haven't tried yet, but the hype is killing me
Highland Tasgall Ale => Very nice...saving this one for the right time

Not much. Arrogant Bastard bomber, a couple Anchor Steam, maybe a Hop Devil left. Need to make a beer run this weekend, I'll drink homebrew this week but there are a few styles I want to try before decided whether to brew them or not.

Bridal Ale, IPA Brut, Elemental fresh hop, Ebenezer, Tannin Bomb & maybe a dozen more out in the aging chest. I probably drink as much microbrew as homebrew.

i have managed to keep ahead with homebrew - only beer i have bought in the last year was 2 cases of lakeport to take on a fishing trip in july

I just got a sixer of Sierra Nevada Brown Ale to try. I was not that impressed, I think my brown ale is better.
I also got a few 22s of Young's Oatmeal Stout to try since I think that is what I am going to brew next. It is good, but I'm still not sure if that is what I'll make next or not.
Oh yeah, and a bunch of Bud light for the roommates so they stay out of my homebrew.

I'd just never had a steam beer before, and it's something I've thought about making. It's still hard for me to describe flavor all that well, it was just kind of a lager with a lot more flavors going on, and a fuller taste to it. I'll probably make some in the spring.
