Not sure if these are available where you live, but here goes for a few of my favorites (not in any particular order):
Shiner Bock, from Texas, USA
Weihenstephaner Weissbier or Vitus, from Munich, Germany
Maisel's Weisse, from Bayreuth, Germany
I've never had a bad drop of Erdinger Weissbier, either... It's also bottle fermented, so you can even get a high quality starter from the bottle for free.
