Default Your favorite top five beers?

So we were having this conversation about our favorite beers last night and I realized it is more difficult to come up with a list of my favorite top five beers than I thought so just as an excuse to exercise your opinion I was wondering what your top five favorite beers are.

Rules:
Pick your favorite beers. Not the best beers necessarily but your favorites.
Include justification if you feel like it.
They don't need to be in order.
Whatever your choices be ready to defend them.
