    My fridge only contains beers like: Palaet Wrecker, Imperial Mad Hatter, and Old Heathen.So what would you say are some good easy to get everyday drinking beers. Im trying to take a break from imperials and looking for something I can relax more with but still enjoy a craft brew. They also have to be easy to get.

    So far Im thinking:
    Sam Boston Lager
    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
    Goose Island Honkers Ale

    Any ideas?

    SNPA - heck it is just a great beer, readily available, and relatively inexpensive.

    Odell's 5 Barrel Pale Ale

    Not sure if you get Odell's - I don't see a location on your profile. But that one is one of my favorites.

    Sierra Nevada seasonals - that way, as soon as you get tired of one, you're already in the next season.

    Austin Beer Works. Local brewery in Austin that makes some great session beers (IPA, pale, Schwarz, and pilsner)

    Two Hearted is easy to get. I'm ten minutes from Three Floyds so for me Zombie Dust is easy to get and easy to drink.

    Can't go wrong with Dale's Pale Ale. gives me the hop i crave, and i can drink several without getting wasted like i might with something like a jai alai. plus cans are great.

    I am two exits off the highway from the great Brew Kettle in Strongsville, OH. While it is not east to find, but when it is available I stock up on White Rajah! Amazing beer that I could drink everyday!

    Two Hearted, if you can get it locally. I can't, so I'd say SNPA. It's timless and amazing every time I have it. If you want to get super-local, NEBCO Elm City Pils or Two Roads Worker's Comp Saison.

    Whenever I head to Chi-Town to visit family, Half Acre Gossamer is certainly a staple in my fridge. I would also put Gumballhead on the list.

    I scour the city for Pearl Snap Pilsner any time I'm that general direction. Hoping ABW makes it way to Houston eventually.

    Grey Sail Ale. Cream Ale brewed right here in Rhode Island. Cans of it readily available state-wide.

    Long Trail Ale. Love this beer, it helped me get into craft in general.

    Sam Adams Noble Pils. I could drink it by the gallon.

    since you seem to like hops, try a bunch of different APA's until you find the ones you like. i think you can't go wrong with dale's, but there are plenty of others.

    Two Hearted for IPAs. Founders Porter for porters. The Poet for stouts. Weihenstephaner for hefes.

    Isn't Lagunita's Sucks going to year round? When it does, that will be the correct answer :)

    Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale.

    Any German Oktoberfest.

    New Glarus Two Women Lager and Moon Man.

    Maybe Two Hearted, though I don't usually like a whole 6 pack of that.

    Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada are awesome because they are easy to find and inexpensive(yeah I know stating the obvious). Full Sail Amber is a really good beer that you can find at the supermarket, and Total Wine sells the 12 packs for 10.99!:D

    Two Hearted all day. I'm also really fond of Arbor Brewing's Sacred Cow. Both inexpensive and readily available here.

    Sweetwater IPA is a solid everyday libation for me. Relatively inexpensive, crafted with love, and tasty. Two Hearted ale is also nice, as is the occasional bomber of Abita Andygator.

    Deschutes Mirror Pond, if it's around your area. Also the Trader Joe's Mission Street Pale Ale, made by Firestone Walker. Seriously tasty beer that's an excellent value as well.
