    I haven't yet. I do love Paulaner Octoberfest.

    Actually for the last couple of months I've been drinking beer from around the country. I've been shipping Heady Topper (the recipient pays for the beer and the shipping) and they send me beer from their area for my troubles. It's not a business, I tell them I don't need the beer, but they send it anyway.

    Tonight I'm drinking a White Rajah from Strongsville OH.

    No A&P's around here but I'll remember the brand if I see it. I'm always open to trying new stuff.

    SOOTH, I just tried it for my son's lunch a few weeks ago (This local A&P carries Thumans, not Boar's Head, so I gave the Hartford Reserve a shot, which is the A&P brand.). He, my wife, and I all agreed that it's the best deli turkey we've ever had (mostly because it does not taste like a cold cut, but homemade). And, like you, I'm a Boar's Head guy for as long as I can recall.

    I've tried them all but not into all the fancy microbrew beers.

    Always loved Heineken.

    Love the Board Head Honey Maple Turkey.

    Add board head Baby Swiss, lettuce tomato and mayo on fresh Levy's Jewish Rye and you have a killer sandwich!

    Work clothing - shirts, suits, watches, and haircut

    I skimped on all of these when I got out of college because I had too. Took some time to understand quality. I used to think my Movado watch was top notch. Don't underestimate the quality of a good hair saloon.

    I'm partial to their smoked turkey. Boar's Head London Broil and London Broil Port are insanely good.

    pretty decent...that real citrusy IPA I like

    a real hophead might find a tad too much malt-like flavor

    Smart man, I do the same thing.

    I don't cheap out on anything, but I do make a point of getting the most bang for my buck. This is especially true of electronics/computer parts. The latest and greatest is often overpriced and overhyped, so it's better to find a middle ground of price versus performance.

    Currently, the things i don't cheap out on are:

    Watches
    Bike clothing
    Exercise gear
    Work clothing
    General hygiene products (shaving cream, shampoo etc)
