90% of my store-bought is at brew pubs for immediate consumption, but Deschutes is probably at the top of my list for bottled beers.

Also:
SNPA
Coopers Sparkling and Pale Ale
Anchor Liberty Ale
Ditto on anything Samuel Smith makes
Session (price and decent quality)
Abita Turbo Dog
Victory Hop Devil - not available in OK, but cloned and in the keg!
Full Sail Pale Ale
Breckenridge Pale Ale
Hop Otter

Most any German beer in a .5 liter bottle
DOS XX with a lime on a hot day after cutting the grass
St. Arnolds Hefe Weizen
Rogue Mocha Porter
Dog Fish IPA
Stone Arrogant Bastard
Fullers ESB
Smithwicks
Guinness (only in Ireland)
Murphey's Stout

Oh yeah, I do like a wee bit of these commerical libations too, when there's no beer of course.

Nice lineup of uisge beatha, EdWort! The Islay malts are my favorite, especially Laphroaig 10 year (I like the heavier dose of phenols, salt, and peat smoke that you get with the 10 year over the 15), and Lagavulin, which you don't seem to have there.

The Balvenie Doublewood is another of my favorites, as is Abelour in various forms.

I drink them too fast to ever manage to have so many around at one time.

If you're not going to drink that Glenlivet, can I have it?

I'm sorry to say, my Scotch Collection no longer looks like this. This was from the days when the dollar and euro were reversed. It's now cheaper to buy scotch locally than it is Duty Free when returning from Europe.

The Laphroaig is my favorite, but the Isle of Jura Superstition is a close second. Very smooth with a peaty finish.

I'd have to say Spaten's Optimator is pretty high on my list...
