A good Rusty Nail is my favorite mixed drink, apart from that I just stick with Jose Quervo. It may not be the greatest tequila, but for a students budget it isn't bad.

tough call. We really like our wine.
Depending on our mood. But, serving something special it likely would be either Armagnac or Calvados.
Right now I will say Armagnac. It's lighter than Cognac.

My favorite would have to be Glennfiddich 30 year old. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM that is a tasty beverage. I don't drink it all that often due to the cost but boy do I enjoy it when I do.

Not to be a stickler, but either I'm way out of the loop and Sierra Nevada recently introduced an IPA, or you're mistaken in referring to Sierra Nevada's green-labled Pale Ale as an "IPA". I actually hope it's the former, because I love IPA's and I love Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, so if they are actually making an IPA now my day has just been made!

My favorite beverage is also IPA (obviously), current faves being Brooklyn, Harpoon, Stone, or Red Hook (probably in that order). But I'm also a huge fan of Stone's Arrogant Bastard Ale; if I'm only going to drink one or two, that trumps all.

Recently got turned on to an ultra-dry/ultra-dirty vodka martini made with Belvediere and anchovy-stuffed olives. I think I could happily drink myself into a coma with those.

You might be right, I often screw up on the pale ale /IPA distinction. I've had all the ones you listed in the middle section, not a huge fan of Brooklyn, and stone has a bunch of different style pale ales, some I love, some not so much. But Red Hook and Harpoon are great. Flying Dog also has a great pale ale, although it's IPA is meh at best.

I'm with Wil Davis. It's kind of situational.

For lunch, any decent großes bier on tap.


Before dinner, rye and ginger ale in the winter, gin and tonic in the summer.


With dinner, wine.


After dinner,
