None need defending. Those are my favorites. The 5 greatest beers brewed in the entire Cosmos. Pennsylvania.

Cantillon Iris, Saison Dupont? Are they brewed using a "sachet" of flowers, Eau De Toilette and perfumed gunpowder? Just typing Cantillon Iris made me throw up a little. Rochefort 10? Is that some kind of cheese flavored, carbonated, salad spritzer?
And yet none of them can match the DMS-bomb that is Rolling Rock. Getting corn flavor out of adjuncts isn't enough, we need to get that cooked corn flavor out of the barley too!!

Haven't had Stegmaier, and not gonna knock Yuengling, but yeah, Rolling Rock is terrible. Just flat out terrible.

There are definitely beers I like more, but these are the ones available in New Orleans that I tend to buy at the store or whenever I can most often.
Anchor Bock (Bock is one of my favorite styles of beer. Love me some malts)

Gordon Biersch Maibock (I really like the balance of hops and malts in this one)

Sam Adams' Oktoberfest (not much to say, its good and I wish it wasn't a seasonal)

Hitachino Espresso Stout (I wish more places carried this one, its has the perfect amount of espresso flavor.)

NOLA Smokey Mary or Blonde Ale (I love both equally. Mary almost tastes like bacon and the Blonde has a nice balance of hops flavor)
