    Sweetwater IPA. Love that stuff, for some reason. Also Founders Dirty Bastard.

    But in all seriousness, Westbrook Gose or BP Grapefruit Sculpin are perfect easy drinkers for those days I just need to unwind.

    A great beer for my love of IPA, although a triple, and strong enough to take those daily stresses away. About time they come out with some more as I just finished my last one recently.

    A lot of beers would fill that need, and since it's an immediate need, I'd go with what someone up above said... "Whatever looks good in the fridge". For me that's usually a mid- to top-shelf IIPA.

    Pilsner Urquell. I combat the low ABV by drinking 12-16 in a session.

    Oatmeal stout, Pale Ale, Kolsch, Coffee Stout.

    My "I just want a beer" beers have to be inexpensive, but I still want a quality beer. Schlafly almost always fits the bill. I also prefer a beer that's easy to drink.... Not too filling, high in ABV, or too hoppy.

    Some great responses here. I will say that even though I totally blanked on it, GL Eddy Fitz is usually in my fridge, so perhaps I should have included that one. And Deschuete's Mirror Pond and Black Butte.

    Whatever is in the fridge. So yeah anything.

    However, if reaching for anything on hand in a situation like that, I would prob say SNPA, Lagunitas IPA, or if necessary Miller light.

    I don't understand...

    When I'm going to drink the empty calories of a beer, I want an exceptional beer. For instance, last night, I had a miserable commute home and a demoralizing workout afterwards. I got home and my g/f was out with a friend from out of town, so I decided to work on my computer a bit. My hard drive dock failed.

    Yeah, I was ready for a beer. I pulled a Parabola out of the cellar.

    That hit the spot.

    DFH 60 or 90 are usually the beers I get. I can always count on them being at the store and they're great with pretty much any food.

    If I want a pale ale I'll usually buy SNPA.

    I'm also starting to buy more Ballast Point. They have a huge selection in cans which is great. I really wished they'd can Dorado.
