Just curious to know what your favorite intoxicant is next to beer.

I would have to choose brandy and cognac or maybe high-end tequila.

EDIT: Being more specific, Germain-Robin Select Barrel XO is my all-time favorite. Do yourself a favor and try this stuff at least once in your life.

Tequila, definitely. Long as it's 100% pure agave, isn't bright blue and doesn't have as worm (or scorpion) floating in it.

Asbach brandy straight up. Absolutely THE best ice fishing warmer-upper there is. I only treat myself to that a couple/three times a year, though.

OH, you mean liqour

I'm a Maker's Mark man. That or good Anejo tequila, but I really love Maker's Mark. People at work think I'm a drunkard when we go out for a drink after work and I order a MM on the rocks.

When I want something besides beer I go with the Bourbon. A lot of 7 and 7's, or Beam for me. I'm cheap.
