Another +1. And, like iammatt, if I'm ordering scotch I usually ask for it neat, water back.
If I'm just at a bar with friends, and not at a full-fledged "club", I'll often go for a shot and a beer. Typically Jameson for the shot, and whatever beer seems best on tap. I tend to like my bars at least a little bit dive-ish, and it's a little priggish to get hung up over which Trappist ales they do or don't have when you're just bullshitting and getting trashed.
