My go to store bought is Black Butte or Deschutes obsidian stout.
If I see an interesting IPA I might pick that up.
The problem around here is lack of selection.
If I lived somewhere like Portland I might very well have a different go to beer.
I know I would be trolling for new beers if I had that selection.
Let's see if I keep this updated!

On tap
Black Butte clone

In secondary
Pumpkin ale

In primary

I always have a decent selection of new beers on hand. I try to taste as many as I can, we'll call it market research. Most of these are of the the rare 22oz flavor though, so what I've been doing or the past few brews is brewing 12gal batches and bottling what doesn't fit in the keg. Works like a charm, especially now that I'm taking advantage of the free slave labor.

They've been bottling 100% on their own for a month or so now. From sanitation to priming. All I do is run the capper when they run out of room on the table, and only because they're not strong enough on their own.

Enough bragging about it though. This has made it easy to not run out, get the family involved (the family that brews together stays together) and ensure that I always have a variety of homebrew on hand.

I'll usually grab something local to me in NC--Big Boss, Aviator, Lonerider. Or just a Sam Adams.

But if I'm in the situation where everything is leaning toward light beer, I'm not afraid to say it, but I'll throw down a few coors lights. I'm not above that.

I havent bought a case of beer in over a year, i've been home brewing for 2yrs now and have a pretty good pipeline, I counted 11 cases down the basement and 10 gallons in primary as of yesterday and ill be brewing 20 gallons tomorrow. The only time I drink commercial is when im out and it is usually something seasonal or local, I'm lucky here in Pa to have some really great local brewerys.
