I live in Delaware so obviously Dogfish is very popular. I like beers that are so hoppy you can chew them best (I like the 120 minute from Dogfish for example) if I'm just having a beer. But if I'm at a baseball game or whatever I have no problem drinking a Bud Lite. Also if I am playing Wizard's Staff
it is best to go with something watery like Miller Lite.
I've been drinking a ton of the Twin Lakes IPA
this summer though - comes in green six packs and perfect for sitting outside with a brew. Something about summer says "beer in a can" to me.
For liquor I drink bourbon. I always keep a bottle of Booker's in the house, but for a Manhattan (pretty much the only mixed drink I do) I like Bulleit Rye.
