First thought is: you need to get out more. Just kidding. Each of us will have our own list. Mine would have to include Arrogant Bastard or Slap Your Mammie on tap somehow...... But to each their own.

Depends on the premise of the question. Am I stuck on an island surrounded by salt water for the rest of my life with an unlimited supply of 5 beers? Or is it the 5 best beers I've ever had, knowing I might not want to consume them in quantity?

Mine would be
Victory
Allagash
Lagunitas
Deshutes
Spaten

The order would change a bit from time to time, but I think I could live the rest of my days happy a tornado in a trailer park on that line up..

Cheers
Jay

I'd have a real hard time picking a top five without taking style into account. I'll just pick the best from some of my favorite styles instead:

Barleywine: Founders Boltcutter

IPA: Olde Hickory Death By Hops

IIPA: Bells Hopslam

Brown Ale: Lonerider Sweet Josie

Imperial Stout: Founders Imperial

Smoked: Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen

I'm going to count only universally findable product since you said commercial..
Orval
North Coast Old Rasputin
Oskar Blue's Dale's Pale Ale
Great Divide Titan
Rodenbach Grand Cru
And if there were 6 I would add Anchor Steam
If I went rarer I would have to think a lot longer..I'd almost call this my top 5 go-to-commercial craft list-Beers I could typically find in any good bottle shop in most states
