As a proud and accomplished beer drinker I'm embarrased that I haven't participated in this thread to date.
I have this habit of letting bottle caps accumulate in the drawer where I keep my church key. I tend to let the pile go for a couple of months before cleaning it out and starting over. I think the last time I cleaned it out was around Easter time.
Here's what I got:
Newcastle -- a bunch of these, I buy it by the case at Costco every now and then. A solid staple.
Deschutes Brewery -- Craft brewery in Bend, OR. They use a common cap on all of their varieties, so I'm not positive which one these are from. I'd guess the Mirror Pond Pale Ale, which is my favorite from them. They make a nice IPA as well.
Karl Strauss Endless Summer Light -- I tend to keep a few bottles of lighter, more mainstream beer on hand for my wife who doesn't like most of the stuff I do. This is the current varietal.
Sam Adams (the original Boston Lager) -- I think a friend brought these by during the NHL playoffs.
Sam Adams ("Brewmaster's Collection) -- From the Black Lager. Oh yeah.
Pacifico -- Another wifey selection. I'll drink 'em with Mexican food when the weather is warm.
Widmer Brewing -- Like Deschutes, this doesn't indicate which varietal, but I recall that my father in law brought down some Widmer hef with him from Oregon. These caps aren't quite as cool as the old Lucky Lager puzzle caps, but they are imprinted with quirky toasts such as: "To convenient memory" and "To skirt-lifting breezes."
Redhook IPA -- I don't remember these very well. I think guests consumed these.
Full Sail Pale Ale -- More Oregon micros. My FIL has really got me on the Oregon bandwagon.
Green Flash Brewery (San Diego) IPA -- Overly hopped, VERY strong taste and a pungent skunky aroma. A bit too much even for me.
Stone IPA -- much more subdued and palatable than Green Flash, but still bold. 6.9% ABV. Yep.
Alaskan Amber -- more playoff beer. Don't remember much about it other than it was good and served its purpose.
Bridgeport Brewing Co. -- Portland. Again. Another generic cap that doesn't indicate the exact varietal, but it does indicate "Bottle Conditioned Ale." Pretty sure this came from their IPA.
Firestone Pale Ale -- Not much to say here. It was cold and good.
No Red Stripe caps, but I will say "Hooray for beer!"
