    That's a damn good question. Some of mine go as follow:

    • Osker Blues - Dale Pale Ale
    • Baxter Brewing Stowaway IPA
    • SixPoint- SweetAction
    just to name a few

    When I think of everyday beer I imediately think of Sierra Nevada.
    Pale Ale, Torpedo, Kellerweis, Summerfest, Tumbler, Celebration........... You can not go wrong.
    Great beer at a great price and easy to get your hands on.

  6. I usually have Widmer Drifter hanging around as a regular drinker. In the summer it changes to lagers like SN Summer, St.Pauli Girl, or Pilsner Urquell

    For local beer here in arizona i'd go with devil's ale or hopshock by santan. Otherwise I'd go with sn torpedo or dfh 60 min. Usually when I'm going to drink one after the other I lean towards ipa's, but that's just me.

    Bear Republic Racer 5. It may be toeing the line of ABV that the OP intended at 7%, but for me its my favorite easy drinking IPA at the moment.

    Victory Prima Pils is easily my "every day"/"session" beer. 5.3% isn't too bad, the taste is great but not overpowering. Even some of my BMC buddies can stomach it.

    Why people are saying anything over 7% is beyond me. Ten Fidy? Seriously? Either you don't understand/didn't read the thread or you're trolling.

    Two Hearted. Sucks. FIS. All-day IPA. Zombie Dust.

    Not saying they're all easily available, but I would buy 2 cases of each and have no trouble finishing them.

  13. Correction. Just as you're starting to enjoy one that matches the current season, the next seasonal comes out. All are good beers, but Celebration barely lasts past Christmas.


    Also, Smuttynose IPA and SN Torpedo are my beer staples.

  16. Just sticking with lagers, Session Lager and Hansa Dortmunder. Though these aren't ones you find everywhere, they have a straightforward easygoing quality. And one with an even lower rating here: Shiner Bock. Good simple stuff.

    In the ale department, I was mighty impressed with Brooklyn Pennant. Does the English style proud. Right now having a Red Tail Ale - that's good too.
     
  17. Past couple of days I've been drinking SA Double Agent IPL.

    One more vote for Two Hearted. And I love the idea that I can get it at most bars and eateries around here.

    Or Root Beer....

  19. You guys are killin' me! Three hour drive to get 2 hearted, Same place had Hopslam for a couple of hours. Can't get Zombie Dust or Sucks and haven't had one yet. DAMN it sucks to live in the land of no beer. I can get Sam Adams and SN but that gets old. Boo f'n hoo.

    Gumballhead would be the beer I go for when I just want a straight forward beer and don't feel like tasting something new. I don't buy it often, but in the same category would be Joe's Pilsner from Avery. As my friends have described it, it's beer flavored beer but just better than BMC.
     
  24. I can't complain with the log sitting in my kegerator right now. Smuttynose Finestkind IPA. Drinkable and refreshing.

  31. I'm surprised at some of the choices in this thread for Everyday Drinking Beer. Many of them are sipping beers rather than drinking beers and if you drink beers of such ABV on a regular basis I wouldn't want your livers!
    I would regard anything much over 5% as being over strength to be regarded as everyday drinking beer, never forgetting that beer owes its existence to being a safe alternative to water ie to be drunk in some volume.Stronger beers are special occasion brews in my book.

    And seriously, not trolling, sometimes an ice cold miller lite just hits the spot. You'd be surprised how good and refreshing it is after not having it for a while. When catching a game in person or on tv, this is the way to go. Coors light is ok. Will not drink bud light unless i have no choice.

  36. Medalla. I'm dead serious. Drink a hundred, nothing will happen. It's more crisp than water and gives you a subtle buzz. It's so crisp it's ridiculous.

    Victory Prima Pils. Delicious and pairs extremely well with many foods, including pizza.

    Generic IPA, I stick local for these. Port City when I'm in Alexandria, Yards when I'm in Philly. Crisp, refreshing, and not too hoppy.

  39. Depends. Is money the deciding factor? Or are we just talking about something simple that is easy to drink, as opposed to something really robust (like a super-hoppy IPA or a dark bold Baltic Porter like Old Rasputin).

    If money isn't much of a problem, I'd go with Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout or Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (the latter being ridiculously expensive). Very very smooth, but flavorful. I might also go with Allagash Black. Smooth and delicious. Just crazy good.

    Otherwise, I might have to go with Bar Harbor Cadillac Mountain Stout. Or maybe Longtrail Double Bag.
