So I've been working on an amber that would serve as a "house beer" , one that would always be stocked in my fridge. Anybody else brew up a "House beer" that they always keep on stock and if so what is it?

I have a few that I consider my "house" beers - that I brew very regularly and I always have 3-4-5 of these on tap.

British Ordinary Bitter
British Dark Mild
Oatmeal Amber Ale
"C-Hop" APA
Munich Helles

Summer I usually have an american wheat and winter I usually have a porter.

I almost always have one or both of the british beers on tap. Probably always have one or the other of the amber and APA..... sometimes both (like now. Brew the helles probably 4-6 times a year.

I don't. Although I probably should keep my better ones on tap more. I generally keep a blonde on tap for friends. I also keep an IPA either in bottle or on tap. But those aren't house recipes, most of the time there new recipes. I re-brew recipes on request and some others a couple times through out the year. But the recipe is usually tweaked every time.

As above, I try to keep a few brews on tap at all times alongside a few that change from keg to keg (I have a six faucet keezer). But if I had to pick a single "house beer" from the lot, it'd be the IPA brewed with my home-grown Chinook/Cascade/Centennial hops. It's both of my sons' favorite - and I'm kinda keen on it myself

Cheers!

I keep an American Amber Ale on hand year round. I like to have three different styles on hand all the time, but the amber ale is my spirit lifter.

I have a House Amber as well. An amber seems to fit the pallet of all my friends quite nicely.

My wife really prefers the darker style beers. My English Brown Porter, I always try to have a few ready to drink. I recently brewed a English "Standard" Bitter, that I enjoyed right until the end.


Primary #1 Brown Porter
Primary #2 American Stout ( My first attempt at this style)

Bottled: Black IPA, Triple Chocolate Stout, ESB, Conditioned Brown Porter, American Amber Ale #2, Hard Cider, and Apple Jack.

EDIT: My Brown Porter just won Best Of Category in both the Porters and Stouts last week. If it wasn't for my loving wife pushing me to "Enter it a contest." I never would have. The first contest I entered, I was then a new brewer, and got killed by the judges. Looking back they were right, I shouldn't have even tried to enter a contest. Fast forward over one year and many batches later, I am not wanting to ask for high fives from anyone. The most positive thing I get from winning, is a reassurance that my methods and processes are correct when I brew, or very close to it.
I do not plan on entering any contests anytime soon, but I will definitely keep on brewing to the best of my ability as I know how.
