In brief: Lots of things...
Common offenders: coffee, black teas, tobacco, wine, excess amounts of berries (blue, black varieties), sodas.
Acidic drinks (including things like sports drinks) can damage enamal and set you up for tooth stains. A good tip: use a straw for drinking so that the front teeth aren't as exposed the liquid.
