-Beer-
IPA: Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA, then Rogue Imperial IPA, although Harpoon XXXX Quad IPA is best taste:value ratio
Belgian: Allagash Tripel
Lager: Umm...Sam Adam's Boston Lager? Not much of a lager fan, and it's not like most others
Hefeweizen: Blue Moon
Brown: Smuttynose Old Brown Dog!
Dark: Dogfish Raison d'Etre (although it's not really a "dark" brew)

-Wine-
Old Vine zins, cabs, merlot blends
Bogle hasn't put out a single bottle I didn't like
Cline Red Truck is a nice one under $10
Smoking loon makes the only pino noir under $20 that's actually good
Yellowtail (hail from down under!) is probably best taste:value, esp since they also come in 1.5L bottles here

-Liquor-
Gin: Tanqueray, then Beefeater
Vodka: Grey Goose L'orange mmmmm
Whiskey: Maker's Mark
Tequila: not a fan, but there are a few I can appreciate ("sipping" tequilas)
Others: Jagermeister (I don't know why), Bailey's is alright on the rocks, some pomegranate liqueur I don't recall the name of, Limoncello

But mostly I drink the cheapest thing that won't make me cringe upon consumption!

I totally agree about Jagermeister and Bailey's.
Other stuff i don't know, but I'll say:
WHAAA??? What the hell is Grey Goose L'orange??? This isn't vodka! Only vodka is made in Russia! :D
Stolichnaya, Rossiyskaya, Slavyanskaya, thousands of them, but they're named in russian! :)
Now my favorite is Kazyonka (Казёнка), made by Kristall (Кристалл/Crystal, they made Stolichnaya) liquor factory. It's new so it's not faked. You drink it like water.
Let me tell y'all something about vodka in Russia.
95% of Russians did drink vodka. About 25% of us drink it regularly.
And i can say that there are two types of vodka here:
fake and good.
Fake is called "palyonka" or "palyonaya vodka" (fake, faked vodka). The taste is like you drink some spirit with gasoline. Instantly you want to puke.
And there is good vodka. You drink it like hot water. Easy but a little bit painful )
Fake vodka is obviously cheap - about 120 roubles or less (USD 4). There is also a big chance to buy a pricey vodka that is fake. Some people make money on fake vodka and they fake popular brands like "Stolichnaya". I recently bought Stoli and it was fake. What a disappointment. So there is a rule: buy a new vodka that you never saw. There is a big chance that no one faked it yet and it's good and from the factory.
That's all I can say about Russian Vodka by now! :)

This is Russia cocktail. It is my favorite cocktail.
First grenadine, then Curacao Blue, then Vodka (Gin/Rum/any transparent liquor).
First layer you drink is vodka (or other) and it's hot, then light Curacao Blue, then Grenadine, which is very sweet.
Every ingredient is alcoholic and it tastes fine, so i prefer it.
Try some if you can and want! :)

They did a nice trick with the colors there. Nice.
So if they switched the order to curacao blue, vodka, then grenadine, it would be a Luxembuorgian or Dutch... Or if it was grenadine, vodka, curacao blue, vodka, grenadine, it would be a Thai...

Sorry, having too much fun there.
