Milwaukee's Best. $11.99 for a 24 pack. It's just beer for god's sake. You're going to pee it out in a couple of hours anyway. LOL

Lets not forget Port Brewing/ Lost Abbey! I miss living in So Cal. My wife and I used to do weekends in North County and tour the breweries and eat at Stone.

Oh, and I'm a beer geek and cannot name just one favorite. Lately some of the new breweries in Austin like Jester King and ABW have been making some excellent stuff. My main favs will always be So Cal beers from Stone, The Bruery, Lost Abbey, Port, Green Flash, etc...

In my locale ( Grand Junction - CO ), all of the brews from Stone Brewery are a buck more costly than the Colorado brews. No doubt about it, Stone brewery puts out some good brews, but to my taste buds, they are not worth the $1 premium on a six pack.

Port and Lost Abbey are great as well! Green Flash recently opened up a new brewery and tasting room in Mira Mesa and have started shipping their beers across the US

How's the microbrew scene in Austin nowadays? I left in 2005 before it started hitting critical mass.

I was so happy when I moved from CA>TX to have Green Flash already here (though not the full lineup).

Austin in the last year has been kicking some butt for beer. Black Star Co-Op opened up and they're a neat little brewpub who also has some great guest taps. Jester King out in Hill Country has been making some fantastic beers and are trying to be a true farmhouse brewery with spontaneous fermentation and the whole 9 yards. Austin Beer Works is putting out some great canned craft beer, Independence is solid and pumping out great brews, and (512) brewing makes some great stuff. Then there is Thirsty Planet and Circle Brewing, Live Oak.

Jester King recently successfully sued the TABC and won on a few items. No more will there be "Ale in TX" plastered in labels of lagers. Texas as a whole is really growing for beer. Dallas' first production brewery opened up last month and two more will be opening shortly. San Antonio ans Houston also have some great new breweries like Ranger Creek and Karbach.

Some lesser known one's I like:

La Fin Du Monde (Unibroue - Montreal) Be careful with this "tripel" as it's around 10% ABV!
Goose Island Honker's Ale (Chicago)
Moose Drool (Big Sky Brewing Co - Missoula Montana)
Coeur D'Alene Brewing Co's Amber Ale (CDA Idaho)
EBC Pale Ale - Ellicottville Brewing Company (western NY state)

Mass produced stuff I like:
Labatt Blue
Molson Canadian / Export
Blue Moon
Stella Artois
most of Sam Adam's offerings

When I was in Beijing, Tsingtao was hard to find, but they had another brand that was pretty good.
