Default Top 10 Beers Of All Time?

I apologize if this has been done before but I could not find it in the search. I am a youngster and just turned 21 last year so I only have experience with the mass produced domestic beers, Coors, Budweiser, etc. and looking to explore the world of beers.

I have noticed A LOT of different brands and was wondering what your top 10 were? They can be any type of beer as I am looking to explore all different kinds.

Please number in order and feel free to add a description or notes if you wish:

1. Beer # 1
2. Beer # 2
3. Beer # 3
Etc.

Although I am newbie to beer as well(I turned 21 two weeks ago) I did live in Germany for four months a year ago, during which I was of legal age to drink. So, without further adieu, my top 10 list(not in a particular order):

1. Franziskaner Heffeweizen Dunkel
2. Spaten Optimator
3. Kostritzer Schwarzbier
4. Ur-Krostitzer Schwarzbier
5. Leipziger Gose(any brewpub's version)
6. Guinness(only on tap)
7. Shiner Bock
8. Stone Imperial Russian Stout
9. Arrogant Bastard Ale
10. Big Bear Black Stout

The only two I have heard of are Shiner Bock and Arrogant Bastard Ale. I have yet to try the ABA but I had a Shiner Bock today and really enjoyed it. I picked up their variety pack of 6 different beers and so far have had the original Shiner Bock and the Hefeweizen (I think I spelled that right?) and really enjoyed them both. I believe they make the Hefeweizen with orange and lemon peels and honey. I followed the pour directions on the bottle and garnished with a lemon slice. Very good brew. Have you had a chance to taste it?

I have indeed actually! I tried that exact sampler just the other week and was thoroughly surprised at how good the different beers were! To be honest, I didn't even know that Shiner even made different styles of beer other than their Bock! Now I REALLY need to make a trip down to the brewery in Shiner considering I am only a few hours from the brewery!

You are speaking my language!! In case you were wondering, the opposite of "dunkel" is "helles," the two meaning "dark" and "light" in German.

Word has it that some of the BC batches of Sumerian brew were quite good.

Not going to argue with any of the ones mentioned. I try a lot of beers, but maybe not the best but a very solid top 10 for me would be Sam Adams octoberfest.

Say what?

My recommendation to the OP is to just try wha looks interesting to you and is within your budget. Until you develop your tastes, suggestions won't mean much. For example, if after a broad experimentation you decide you like stouts then the suggestions here will have more value.

That's the way I started. I would go and buy a few different singles and the ones I liked I would look up what the style was and try more of that style. Beer Advocate and Rate Beer have big review databases that can help you get info when you can't find any on the bottle. Take the reviews with a grain of salt.

I don't think I have 10 favorite beers. The ones I normally buy:

Bell's Two Hearted
Fat Tire
Guinness (Foreign Extra Stout is my favorite)
Summit EPA
Rogue Dead Guy Ale <-- rather expensive, so I don't buy this often
Bud Light <-- when I am at a festival, I need something that goes down like water, and rather low in alcohol content, because we drink all day.

When I was 21, I drank a TON of Busch Light, Keystone, Miller High Life, PBR. Whatever was cheapest.

I'd have a top 10 list in each beer style, so my recommendations would go on for pages. For the OP, I'd suggest stopping by one of the other beer threads ("beer hauls" and "what beers are you enjoying?") for more discussion and suggestions of beers that fit a profile you like.
