I know there is a thread for worst Commercial beer ever

But what about the best

I'd have to say O'dells Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout is by far the best beer I have ever had.

This one's easy:

Green Flash West Coast IPA - even with a price increase and package change screw over coming, its still my favorite beer ever, and will be my 3rd ever batch of home brew shortly.

Kulmbacher Eisboch. By far. Perfect sipper on a cold night.

Whenever I get back home to North America I try to get my hands on a few La Fin Du Monde's from Unibroue. Love that beer.

Just had my first Westmalle Dubbel, holy crap! It might take over the spot previously held by Harvestouns (spelling?) Old Engine Oil Ale.

So far the one I enjoy the most is Stone's Arrogant Bastard.

Good choice. It of course depends on my mood, but a few different beers I've tried are at the top of my list.

Beer Valley Brewing Company Black Flag
Unibroue La Fin Du Monde
Dogfish Head Black And Blue
Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale
Bear Republic Big Bear Black Stout
Bear Republic Racer 5

These are all quality brews. It's impossible to pick one that's better than the other seeing as how sometimes I'm in the mood for one style over another.

Man, do I really have to attempt to choose just one?! It depends on mood's and times of year really. But here's a short list.

Great Lakes Brewery- Nosferatu
GLBC- Burning River
Pete's wicked ale
Dog Fish Head 90 min-IPA
And best on tap so far was in France, Grimbergen Blonde ale

Surprisingly similar to my response. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
