    I don't know about you guys, but I find Pizza Port swamis & session IPAs are perfect for everyday drinking, specially during these hot summers.

    I went a long time without drinking lagers or pilsners, I kind of wrote them off. But these past few weeks I've been getting a six pack or 4 pack for the whole work week. First it was Pivo by Firestone and then 1811 lager by Fort George both excellent refreshing beers.

    My fave easy drinking beers are sours and New Glarus fruits. I could easily drink New Belgiums La Folie everyday for the rest of my life

    I am a huge fan of English styles... so I keep Fullers London Pride and ESB on hand but if the English knew that I had a soft heart for Highland Brewing's Gaelic ale... they might draw and quarter me. ;)

    Fuller's London Pride used to be an every day beer for me but it has become too expensive, Honker's Ale is a much cheaper alternative.

    Ah yes... Honker's is quite nice. Another worth checking into is Legend's Brown ale. Not sure if you can get it in NY though, but it's a keeper.

    Pilsner Urquell. Warsteiner Premium Verum. Varying selection of Polish, or sometimes Romanian or Lithuanian lagers. Never really have a true go to anymore as it's more fun to change every time you go shopping. Sometimes have a session where the cheap swill was the favourite beer of the night!

    Sam Adams Boston Lager is easily accessible, affordable, delicious, and not too heavy

    Huh? Sam Adams BL is the poster boy (IMO) for a easy drinking quality lager. Hoppy, biscuity, crisp, easy drinking. A great beer that is very much under appreciated as stated above.

    Funny you bring this up. I was a HUGE Bling Pig fan, but have not had it in quite awhile. Recently during PBW I was lucky enough to have both a Fat Heads Head Hunter IPA and a RR Blind Pig on draft back to back. Granted, I did not know the age of either keg, but Head Hunter absolutely blew Blind Pig out of the water. It was super surprising to me.

    If Head Hunter were available in my area regularly, it would be my everyday IPA no questions asked.

    Tell me about it! When it came in six packs it was 10.99, now they have gone to a 4 pack format and I saw it in stores for 9.99 - it just doesn't compute.

    When I was quite a bit younger I would try SABL and could not get into it as my AAL trained taste buds couldn't adjust to the hops. But now I'm into IPAs and SABL, in cans, is a frequent visitor to my fridge, especially in the summer. I can't say I have a real go to brew as I usually have a mix of beers. The heat has arrived in NC and various wheat beers and SABL are becoming a more frequent choice along with home brew. But, I always have at least one IPA around. Recently I've become a Two Hearted convert (cans only). I'll get it when I can't get Hop, Drop, and Roll (you have to be there when it's delivered or it's gone).

    Someone above said Brooklyn Summer, and I would agree that has great everyday appeal. I would also add Two Brothers Domaine DuPage, Anchor Porter, Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold, Victory Festbier (if it were year round) and Aecht Schlenkerla Maerzen Rauchbier (if I could afford it I would buy it by truckload)

    Lagunitas Lil sumpin or Sierra Nevada pale ale. 2 of my favorite easy drinking every day beers. If you ever venture to Texas I would suggest the Karbach Weekend Warrior, a pale ale perfect for a day at the pool.

    I recently discoverd NoDa's Jam Session which I really like as a session ale. It's not nearly as hoppy as HDaR, but it's very well balanced.
    I agree with SammyG832 regarding La Folie. I could drink it every day.
    I had some "throwback" Schlitz that was suppose to be like the 70's version of it and it was pretty damn drinkable.
