    I'm more of a wine guy, so am always well stocked with Oregon Pinot Noir and Bordeaux. I keep a few harder things around like 10 Cane Rum, Calvados, Hennessy XO Cognac, Woodford Bourbon, Grand Marnier, and Cachaca, which is like tequila but from Brazil and used to make caipirhinas.

    Nothing too fancy. The BW picks her own tequila and mixers. I like to have a fairly decent gin around for martinis--last couple of bottles have been Bombay. The one booze thing I'm particular about, besides beer, is bourbon--I like to keep Knob Creek in stock.

    Oddball stuff: a bottle of feni the BW brought me from a stall in Goa. Made from cashew fruits. Deceptively clear and innocent-looking. Think of tequila's outlaw cousin.

    I'm a simple man.

    A keg of Yuengling lager on tap at 35F and some clean pint glasses.

    I have rums, Laphroaig and Oban, various burbons and whiskeys and even a few others but most of the time, a cold pint (with descent head) is my gig.

    I keep a few things for my drinking pleasure.

    Johnnie Walker Black Label (can't afford Blue Label, yet)
    Guinness (cans when I can buy them, stupid bottles when I cant)
    Boddingtons Pub Ale
    Leinenkugel's a completely new (to me) discovery that I find to be awesome. I currently can only find Sunset Wheat. I don't know how to describe it because I haven't really gotten into the terminology, but it has a really smooth flavor and finish that is strongly reminiscent of blueberries even though it has no blueberry flavoring artifical or otherwise that I can determine. Corriander? I dunno. I like it.

    (The rest of the stuff in my bar is unmentioned because its not things I really drink, its for my wife or guests.)

    Anyway, for me, life is too short to drink cheap beer.

    First picture is my Bourbon and Rum bar with some of my favorites. The second is my Tequila bar. The barrels are for aging Tequila. The third is by empty Tequila bottle collection. There are over 50 empties. I haven't counted them in a while. I have tried over 100 Tequilas.
