Default What is everyones favourate "mainstream" beer?

Just wondering what everyones favourite mainstream beer is? EG: Heineken, Stella..... not Craft Brewery Beers though! It will be interesting to see what people drink, if only given the choice of mainstream commercial beers.

Mines probably "Pilsner Urquell".

Im picking most will be lagers of some sort...

Also, Can anyone identify this beers style, eg Pilsner? HB "Hofbrau Munchen" Hofbrau Original. "http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/beergeek_1984_946037"

I would say it is a Munich style lager. Nice round malt, balanced hops that are less present then in the PU.

Favorite beer? Changes with every trip to the store, but I would have to say today's answer is SN's Big Foot Barleywine.

Pilsner Urquell, Paulaner Munich Helles. Shiner Bock is local and easy to find. Very last resort- Budweiser.

Only mainstream? Gotta go with Newcastle and Guinness.

I'd probably go for a nice pint of Smithwick's most of the time if I'm reaching for a decent non craft brew. It's been my college go-to beer.

Mmm...I gotta agree with Newcastle and throw in Hoegaarden and Sierra Nevada if you consider that mainstream.

Well, me living in Mexico and not having that many options....I always turn to XX Ambar, Indio or Negra Modelo; when I know it's gonna be a long night and will be drinking many many beers, i turn to tasteless, but very light, Sol.

Most times, Guinness. In the summer, Franziskaner Hefe (if available) or maybe a Hoegaarden (which seems to be on tap everywhere these days).
