I've been consuming a lot more beer lately, and my waist line is starting to show for it
Seems ever since St. Patty's day I've kept my bar fridge stocked with Kilkenny and Guinness.

Today I stumbled upon a couple dusty old bottles of a rare age statement Bruichladdich (port finished)
...its very hard to find older Laddie's these days, especially for under $100 (I paid $89) so I couldn't say no.

If its a good one, I'll go back for the other bottle next week.

I hear you on the beer. Lost 40 brewing is less than five minutes from where I work and I have been hitting it the last few days. They have a brew right now only on sample that is their Love Honey Bock that was aged in Three Roses bourbon barrels for 3 months. The regular bock is good but the barrel aged is very good.

Nice middle of the road whisky that can be had for relatively little money.

Amazingly enough, Glenlivet will be discontinuing the 12 and begin marketing a non-age statement whisky instead.

I just want to participate in the discussion a bit
So here is what I'm working on. A lot of the wines on the counter are from the wine fridge that I was moving when I took this photo. We have a second wine rack not pictured.
Our "best wine" are some ice wines we loved from our Niagara winery tours last fall. We keep the Patron in a separate not so accessible to all our guests area lol!

Was that the Canadian or the American side of the Niagara region? I honestly don't know what there are for vineyards on the American side, what with being Canadian and all.

Also can you post a picture of your Coca-Cola paraphenalia that appears on the left side of that image? I love old Coke stuff but don't collect much. I'd like to have a nice fridge in the basement though.

Ok here is some of what I have I had to take the opportunity to show it off
I actually like a lot of the mid 1990's era stuff. And reproductions. Just because I like the LOOK of it, the older worn stuff isn't my style and I could never afford the older mint stuff
We actually put a bit of work into the fridge to get it in 100% working order. Even tho it isn't THAT old. I traded a snowblower for it lol!
