What would you put up for the interior walls of your man cave in the garage?

I have a fairly large garage and have framed out a second floor room, roughly 12 foot by 12 foot. The electrical service is all in as well as the insulation. I will mostly be drinking and watching the Jets in this room. It is not a workshop.
I will be doing the work.
I suppose I could just hang dry wall, but that would look pretty boring. Also, I have no dry walling skills and it seems to me that no matter how easy the pros make it look, it is probably tough to do correctly.
So, what other materials could I use that might give it a rustic look and that does not result in too much heat loss?
I'm thinking wood but I don't know what forms (board, panel, other) or types (pine, cedar, other) would make the most sense as far as ease of installation, heat loss, and over all cost.
If drywall is still the best option, I will still consider it.
Cost will be a consideration too.
I would appreciate any ideas.
