With 80+ craft breweries within lunch distance it's a tough call, but I'd say Newcastle with a light layer of RenFaire dust and a couple wenches.

I'd say that's a Munich Lager...it can be made using the So German Lager yeast.

My (almost) everyday brew is my German-style Hefe Weizen...it's not a seasonal brew for me. I probably have 3-4 kegs and 2 cases on-hand at the moment.

I think this question has only been answered properly by a few. I would say mainstream beers would be a beer that you can go into a gas station, and know that they will have. One that you can get all over the country. It doesn't have to be a cheap beer such as Budweiser, although if that's it, call it out.

As for me my favorite mainstream beer is Miller Lite.

If it has to be at the gas station, then it has to be bud, miller or coors, all they have at most gas statiobs here with the odd mexi-beer thrown in. I am going with Sam Adams and Newcastle, neither of which can I get at any gas station around me, but I can at the grocery store.

Fermenting: Nada
On Tap:Cran Wit, Dr Pepper Dubbel, Cascadian Pale Ale, Dark Chocolate Stout, Imperial Stout, Brown Mild, Schwarzbier
On Board: IIPA
