Had a great non alcoholic chocolate milk stout up at Untitled Art for GHC. Went down too damn smooth.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

Rum personally when it comes to spirits. More into mixed drinks than straight

Beer most of the time though.

Beer is something I've never understood. I know I'm the weird one for not liking it when everyone around the world seems to, but it just tastes like sour wheat juice to me. I've tried dozens of them, and I can't stand a single one.

Rum can be nice. I am oddly partial to Blackguard rum. It's super cheap, and it tastes strongly of cherry for some reason, but it works wonderfully in mixed drinks.

Infrequent imbiber here but I do enjoy a really good sipping Tequila (Don Julio Anejo or Don Julio 1942 are great.) Occasionally, I enjoy a good cabernet or zinfandel wine. I'm lucky enough to occasionally go wine shopping (every few years) - pick up a dozen bottles - put them in a wine cooler in my basement then forget about them for several years. I've been lucky to not have them spoil from rotted corks, etc.. (btw - there is no value to using real cork in wine - a screw top or artificial cork is actually better since the cork won't dry out and let in air.)

My wife and I stumbled across a great summer mixed drink using organic clear gin (like Cap Rock.) We had to create our own recipe to create something similar to a drink we tried at a restaurant.
Recipe below (for two ~12-14 oz drinks):
Ingredients:
Clear gin - preferably organic and not artificially flavored (Cap Rock is our go-to)
1 english cucumber
Grapefruit soda (izzie brand seems to work really well) - 2 12 oz bottles
(extras depending on mood): lavender and celery bitters
Cut 6-8 slices of english cucumber and put into a shakable container (pyrex tupperware or a small jar) - add 5 oz of gin - shake vigorously. Place the mixture into the refrigerator for 1+ hours (but not more than 24 hours or the cucumbers will fall apart.)
Using a cocktail shaker (or anything similar - a standard 24 oz works really well) - add ice filling half the shaker. Pour in half a bottle of grapefruit soda, add half of the gin muddle including cucumber slices (don't worry about filtering it yet.) I normally add a single drop of lavender bitters and a drop of celery bitters. Use a light hand as too much of either spoils the drink.

Gently shake until very cold and mixed.

Pour out the shaker into a glass through a filter (even the normal filter from a shaker works - this is just to get the cucumber seeds and ice separate from the mixed drink.) Add 1-2 of the cucumber muddle slices, some ice, then the other half of the grapefruit soda. Repeat for the second glass.

It's refreshing, retains only the flavor of the gin without the burn or alcohol taste, and is a yummy summer drink. Original credit goes to Black Cat restaurant in Boulder, CO for the original recipe on which ours is based.

Dragon can add this to her cocktail list - we always have "enough" english cucumbers in our fridge...and we have a couple varieties of gin. But this hits the 3 main thing she loves in life: Gin, Grapefruit, and Cucumbers

Drank vodka all through college, then shifted to either wine or beer for work purposes, but now firmly in the brown liquor quadrant. Do enjoy a good Templeton Rye Old Fashioned, but after rye alone just isn’t quite as nice as a good bourbon or single malt.

Pretty sure I've seen liquor stores with fewer varieties of gin.

I’m very much a Beer person. Got an appreciation for it drinking German Hefeweizen in Milwaukee, and then really, really got into it living in Colorado for a few years.

I enjoy Scotch, as long as it’s not peaty - About the only one I keep at home is Dalmore 20 though. Generally speaking, I prefer not to get drunk enjoying my drink, and Scotch has a tendency to sink me every time.

Funnily, I feel like my affinity for Hendricks has made it one of our less developed varieties. Our list is out of date by about $600 in recent purchases (stocking up on to holiday bartend for the family and more randomd stuff) (and missing our wine (which is meh) and most of our sake), but this is round abouts the summary (I should also add that Whisky probably includes some boubons as well, but it was easy to lump the "type" for me):

Type Variety Count
Aperitivo 2
Bitters 5
Brandy 5
Cream Liquer 18
Gin 12
Liqueur 35
Moonshine 2
Rum 17
Sake 6
Simple syrup 3
Tequilla 14
Vermouth 2
Vodka 77
Vodka 1
Whiskey 34
Grand Total 233

I think you'd find most don't have that variety.
