Ratebeer.com and beeradvocate.com are both great rating sites that offer a classification. Neither of them use BJCP classifications, but you can always tell what styles their categories correspond to.

The BJCP.org website lists commercial examples at the end of every style description. I like BeerAdvocate for looking up a specific beer, though.

Brewer's Association

The big difference at that site is they classify by what is being brewed commercially.
