    Idk what's available where you are, but as for someone new to craft beer, I'd recommend these six that shouldn't be to hard to get your hands on

    Victory Storm King
    Ten Fidy
    Yeti
    Old Rasputin
    Deschutes Obsidian
    Green Flash Double Stout

    ..I'd recommend branching out though. Try all kinds of styles

    1- Founders KBS
    2- Russian River Supplication
    3- DFH Festina Peche
    4- Russian River Pliny The Elder
    5- Central waters Barrel Aged Barleywine

    Maybe not my DISP (Desert Island Six Pack), but before a flight home from an overseas trip where I had a fairly serious and very surprising medical issue, I suggested my bro and dad have some of these waiting for me. Suggestions based on what I thought might be available in the shops where they were (DFW). They had 'em all, and it amounted to a 6 pack:

    Rochefort 10
    Lenny's RIPA
    Dogfish 90
    Yeti
    Oaked Bastard
    Bigfoot

    The cool thing about the DISP is that it can be fluid and change from day to day. This may not have been my ultimate DISP for today, but based on what I thought they could procure this was my suggestion and the fam came through!

    Cheers! And don't tattle to the doc....

    I'm assuming that we're talking about beers available in standard 12oz bottles / cans that could actually be put into a mix a 6 pack (ie. no bombers or 750s):

    Goose Island BCS
    Bell's Black Note
    BBA Plead the 5th
    Founders KBS
    Founders Backwoods Bastard
    Bell's Hopslam

    Schlafly A IPA - talk about a most underhyped but top-tier IPA... Good to see it on someone's list here! I love that beer. Wish it was easier for me to obtain.

    mecummins Savant (425) Illinois Nov 16, 2012

    Since it's Winter, mine would be a mix of stouts and porters. Ask me again in Summer and you'll get a completely different answer.

    1) FBS (OK, Summer? Winter? Who cares on this one. I'm thinking that a scoop of ice cream could go very nicely with it)
    2) Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald
    3) NH Dragon's Milk
    4) LH Nitro
    5) KBS (haven't tried this yet, but that's the beauty of a sixer, right?)
    6) SN Narwhal
