    something w/ a bit of funk, so...Orval.
    something light in color and refreshing. Umm...Kolsch, probably a homebrewed version until I can get over there and try them properly.
    something darker and with at least some roast component. Again probably a homebrew, but Edmund Fitzgerald would work.

    If I could get those in top form at any moment, I would not feel like I was giving anything significant up.

    What'd I do? I'm innocent. You got nothin' on me, you can't prove nothin'. I wasn't even there that day (night?). Isn't this a violation of my rights under the prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment in the 8th Amendment? I ain't talkin' --- or drinkin' anything --- until I see my lawyer.

    I've been thinking about this and I'm going to have to update my answer *-

    Three beers
    that I love to see arrive,
    Three beers
    that make me glad to be alive,
    Three beers
    that help chase away the sorrow,
    Yesterday's
    Today's
    And tomorrow's.

    There are three days that I know I won't be blue,
    There are three days that I look forward to,
    And I sure feel good to know these days won't end,
    'Cause these three beers start over again.

    *with a nod to Willie Nelson

    If this ever happens it must mean the end of the world so I'll sell everything I own except a supply of glasses, bottle openers and a travel bag to carry it all. In no particular order:
    Mama's Little Yella Pils
    Sculpin IPA
    St Bernardus Abt 12

    A three beer option mega sucks. So here' my chopped down Honorable Mention list in no particular order:
    Dirty Bastard
    Augustiner Edelstoff
    Prima Pils
    Hennepin
    Left Hand Milk Stout
    Fuller ESB
    Firestone Wookey Jack
