    Currently Alaskan amber for my go to beer. Enjoying one right now actually. But when its its season its Midnight sun's "Monk's Mistress." It's amazing styuff.

    For whiskey Booker Noe's if I have the cash. But currently Jim Beam Rye with ginger ale and a dash or two of bitters

    Whilst I don't have much time or opportunity for beer these days, I couldn't live without my morning home brewed latte with 1 part half-n-half and 3 parts skim milk. It just gets my day going right.

    I'm partial to white wine, preferably Italian, Gin with tonic water, and on the beer front Tsingtao.

    I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis...er, Miller Lite.
    Stay thirsty, my friend.

    OR, Maker's Mark on the rocks.

    OR, just plain ice water--and lots of it!

    Well, we had to have 2 so that we could make black and tans. ;)

    The impetus to getting 1 kegerator was to have Guinness on tap (my wife's idea, really!). However, with Guinness being a nitro beer, it limited what else we could put in there, so my wife said to go ahead and get the second one so we could put anything in the CO2 unit. We've had about 15 different kegs in it, everything from a Strawberry Wheat from Front Street Brewing in Wilmington NC, to Spaten Oktoberfest, to Abita Root Beer (when she was pregnant--and don't forget to change the beerline after root beer!). The nitro unit has had a ton of Guinness, the O'Hara's Irish Stout, and a nitro IPA from New South Brewing in Myrtle Beach (much more like a Boddington's than an IPA--no hop note came through). It has been fabulous. That nitro IPA made tan and blacks possible--that was pretty darned cool, too.

    We also have a 60-ish bottle bar and about 8 cases of wine, so we have beverages in the house. We drink every day, but we don't drink a lot, you know? Being able to pull a 7oz beer with a sandwich at lunch is very liberating. Want another sip or two but don't want to open another can/bottle? No problem, just tug the handle a smidge. It's less expensive, the beer is better, and my 15.5gal empties are cleaned and reused, not sent off immediately to be melted. We buy a lot of seasonals from a local chain micro-brewery (Hop's) that brews everything on-site with whole ingredients, and it's satisfying to know that we're drinking a real product made from real ingredients that has only traveled 15 miles.

    My Tuesday night tipple for a Holiday party we hosted was Aberfeldy 21 year old single malt.

    I am a single malt guy for sure, and this was a special treat from a customer. Not sure I could justify a $175 bottle of booze to the wife, but if i had the money to do so, it would certainly be hard to pass up.

    In the meantime, my single malt of choice is the Balvenie 12 year old DoubleWood.

    As for beer, the hoppier the better. IPA's, Double IPA's, and that type of big-beer flavor is my achilles heel.

    Wine choices are reds mostly, I had a great blend the other night called Fourteen Hands which was delicious, and close to me is the Bully Hill Winery, which makes several great offerings in the red category.

    If I had to choose...

    Single Malts would be the preference.

    A few years of living in Portland with its overwhelming beer options cured me of my beer-nerdiness, and now I wouldn't complain if my only options were Sierra Nevada Pale or Lagunitas IPA.

    Well, here in the South, this is pretty much a given (but you can keep the lemon, just add more sugar!)

    I don't have a favourite drink.

    However, my favorite drink is a good Long Island Iced Tea.
