    As I'm finishing up my last semester of college I would have to say PBR, Miller High Life, and my college brewery offering of an IPA (Pearl Street Pale Ale).

    If I get another case of Hopslam this year, then I can add that to the list.

    Yuengling Lager or Sam's Octoberfest, I crush that jammy jam every season it comes out. Might not be the most outstanding beers of their classes, but everyone's got em on tap, they taste great, and they don't destroy your wallet. Good to go.

    Awesome: Oberon, Two Hearted, and probably Hopslam after this month

    I'd say either Ballast Point Wahoo Wheat (have gone through 2 or 3 full kegs of that) or Sam Adams Boston Lager (have had several Costco 28 packs).

    No no no no. that would be correct if it were mass, but liquid is measured in volume, so that is wrong ;).

    When I was young - Heineken/Bass (the 80's and 90's)

    When I was older - Guinesss

    When I was smarter - Rogue Dead Guy

    Bouts w/ eastern europe pilsners like pilsner and Staro are always an issue - so clean.

    Well, that's only about 150 Imperial pints.At one time I'd just about drink my own weight of a single beer in a month.That is in the days when my nightly haunt only sold two beers and I only drank one of them! This was Home Brewery Bitter, alas no longer with us.Strangely enough I was happy with this and looked forward to the following evening.A good session beer like that one just grows on you.
    More recently since there's been the brewing revolution I would say I've had well over 150 pints of quite a few beers.Adnam's Southwold Bitter is a certainty, so are Belvoir Dark Horse Mild and Star Bitter, Brewster's Hophead and Marquis,Greene King Abbot Ale, St. Austell tribute, Theakston's Old Peculier,Fuller's London Pride and ESB,Bateman's Dark Mild , Elgood's Black Dog Mild.Woodforde's Wherry,Bass, Marston's Burton Bitter and Pedigree, Timothy Taylor's Landlord. Loads more , I've lost track.

    We pretty much exclusively drank PBR in college, especially my last two years (04-06--hey, it was $12 a case), so I've definitely done many times my body weight of it, possibly even a whole ton. The beer that we always have on tap at the shore house I've shared with 25 friends for the last seven years is ALWAYS natty light, and we're the biggest party house in town, so I've almost definitely drank a ton of it(there've been three keg nights at our place where we haven't even had guests over).

    As for other beers that I've drank my weight of? (160lbs) The only good one is probably Weihenstephaner Hefe-Wei├če. I've bought at least 7 cases of it, probably more, and I get it relatively frequently when I go out. Over the years, I've probably also hit the 160lb mark with Coors light and Miller light too, just from getting dragged out with friends to bad bars where there's nothing better available.

    If my weight is about 10 cases worth... then at least that much in Squatters Full Suspension and Uinta Cutthroat over the past 15 years or so. I'm sure there are more.

    I know I've at least had 160 lbs. of Samuel Adams Boston Lager in my life. Probably the same with Shiner Bock, Abita Amber, Miller High Life, and a few others.

    In my young pre craft days I drank an entire 24 case of Miller Lite on 2 separate occasions. Thus, my answer is probably some macro swill. Those were the beer pong days. Coulda went pro.

    If we're talking good beer, Zombie Dust and Bourbon County would be close.

    College days = Keystone Light, no brainer. Many, many times over. (UNH ranked #7 party school in the nation my freshman year..)

    Since = Heady Topper and Smuttynose Finestkind. Also, no brainer.
