Living in the US, I know it's kind of limited. Not counting Micro-Breweries. We have here in ATL 420, just to mention a few. I only drink liquor on special occasions. Otherwise- Guinness-Harp, Hieniken, LaBatts and Molson. I love Bass Ale draft, but don't have room for a keg. Every day beer is Miller Lite and I mean weekend only. I like wines and collect a few- but don't have the opportuity to drink wine that often. I got a mini-wine cooler last year. What's your favorite or poison?
Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

I just about always have some of the aforementioned Sweetwater 420 in the fridge (Or another one of the fine brews from Sweetwater Brewing. Right now I have some 420 along with some Exodus porter sitting in the fridge). If not that, then probably one of the following brews:
Sam Adams (Usually the Boston Lager)
On occassion, I may pick up a four pack of Boddingtons or Tetleys. When I go to a liquor store with a great beer selection, I'm like a kid in a candy store. I usually end up by a few bottles of various beers in addition to whatever else I'm buying. I lost count on how many different beers I have tried over the last 10 years, but it has to be somewhere between 300-500.
There is some swill beer, but it belongs to the relatives I live with, as does the jug of wine. I'll buy the occassional bottle of wine, don't have any right now, but do have some sake.

Whenever I go to the UK I only drink Tetleys but I can't find it here in the states.
There is Tetleys English Ale which is sold here in a 4 pack of Draught Cans. I'm not sure to what extent they sell it here in the US. I can find it here in Atlanta pretty easily. I would figure that most of the major cities in the US should carry it. I first found it and fell in love with it in Washington D.C. (the liquor store @ Union Station sold it), and found it on tap at an Irish pub in Boston, and when I found it in a liquor store here for the first time, I was in heaven.

None really as I gave up regular drinking. Although of what's on offer for 'general' types of beer, I always used to like to keep a few cans of Miller in.
I'm quite fond of Michelob Ultra as well. Tastes lovely when properly chilled.
Quoting RAMPRAT980 (Reply 12): Whenever I go to the UK I only drink Tetleys but I can't find it here in the states. Is Tetley's sold exclusively within a certain region of the UK ?
It's more of a northern brand, which used to be Tetley Walker. There is an important distinction there.
The stuff west of the Pennines came from Walkers Brewery in Warrington and was foul. The real Tetleys came from Leeds and was completely different. Thankfully Warrington got closed down. I was never a fan of bitter but the Tetleys stuff from Leeds was a very acceptable pint.
Good British bitters are plentiful if you do any travelling here, some can be as bright as a lager (especially ones brewed for southern tastes). Lots of people I know enjoy Flowers when they can get it.
Grolsch, Becks and Stella should be banned as toxic girly water.
