What a tough question. Mine would have to be a Bell's of some sort, maybe the third coast ale or kalamazoo stout, both are delicious.

There is no doubt in my mind. My all time favorite commercial beer is
Moose Drool from The big sky Brewing Co in Montana. It is a brown ale that is not too hoppy with a smooth delicious malt profile. My first sip sent me to heaven. I have never tasted any beer better than Moose Drool. I always keep around a six pack.

I would probably go Shiner Bock for the most part because I like it and I can get it cheap enough to have some on hand all the time. Then I would vary with a number of other things I like, Newcastle, Taddy Porter, Pete's Wanderlust & Wicked Ale, Killian's Red, Fisher Amber Ale and others as I am in the mood or depending on the season.

Gales HSB, Harveys HSB, Fullers ESB, Draft Bass, and Pompey Royal. (Notice a pattern here?).
Of course, I would have to go back to England, because the American versions (where they exist) are nothing like as good as the real thing.

Without the homebrews I would go with Pete's Wicked Ale or Sierrra Nevada.

On the lager side I must say I love Pilsner Urquelle. I can't wait to try a clone of that and use a ton of Saaz hops

My everyday beer would be a Sprecher Special Amber. I would have to buy a keg of it though because it tastes more than twice as good out of a keg than out of the bottle. And if I had to do bottles I would go for a lakefront Organic ESB.

Are you sure about this?

I'm a fan of German pilsners and other beer styles myself but always regarded Bittburger as the Bud of Germany (at least with regards to the marketing presence this seems to be true)

What commercial beer would I drink? Well, this is easy, I just have to look back at the non HB times:

2. Harpoon IPA

Not so much German beers because they seem to taste different here than over in Germany. Must be the long shipping.
