I can't imagine why anyone would want to "drink one kind for a while". With the great variety of quality stuff out there, why not live a little?

Do you eat PB&J 3x/day, 7x a week?

I've built up a good variety of homebrew at this point. I bottle so I have a few left from most batches I've brewed in the past year or year and a half. So I go down to the basement, choose from a dozen different styles and chill it to have with dinner. I rarely drink the same brew twice in two days, nor would me or my wife serve the same food two dinners in a row.

Beer is food!

Rolling Rock from the mountains of Latrobe PA.
"33"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_Rock
It is a nice light refreshing beer for lightweights like me.
In my younger and wilder party days, it was Miller Genuine Draft or Heineken or Labatts.
Cost was not a factor.

I'm a big fan of Belgian beer. Next time I'm in Trader Joe's I'll have to pick some of this up and give it a shot.

Any other recommendations for beer at Trader Joe's? I'm always looking for something new.

I usually keep a few Miller Lites in the fridge. Not the most exciting pick, but it's a nice go-to especially if you want a refreshing beer. After a long day of mountain biking, ML tastes great in a frosted beer mug.

If I go to a bar that just has standard stuff on tap, I often order Guinness. I used to hate the stuff but it's really starting to grow on me.

Feel free to flame me for this but both ML and Guinness are "healthier" picks compared to many of their competitors.

I used to love Icehouse but haven't had it in a while. I think it was $12 for a 30 pack when I was in college (not bad for 5.5%). It tasted like a real beer compared to other stuff I was drinking like Milwaukee's Best.

Hate to burst your bubble, they sold out to SOB (some other brand) a few years ago. The old Latrobe brewery only does contract brewing for a variety of other outfits.

Rolling Rock RIP.

Yes, I know.
It is still being made, but not in Latrobe. Same recipe, different location. Still tastes great on a hot sunny day. It is not a light beer (less alcohol) per se, but it is not heavy in taste.

Moose Drool - A delightful brown ale from Montana

Pipeline Porter - A unique beer from Hawaii that actually has Kona coffee in it. (You can get blitzed and sober up all at the same time )

Fat Tire - A classic Colorado amber

In my long ago days at Lamont Doherty, Friday afternoon record readings and presentations by Phd wannabees, also at "talks" by visiting cognoscenti, Rolling Rock was the required accessory.

I had my 1st Rolling Rock in Binghamton NY, senior year of college.
They were sold in regular 12 oz and "Ponies", 7 oz beers sold in 8 packs that were popular back then.
The local college watering holes had 3 Ponies for a buck, the "special" every day.
Ah those were the days...

Best beer for a buck huh? Is that per beer or per 6-pack?

I'll assume that you mean per 12 oz. bottle/can. I have an everyday beer that I have consumed since teenage years that is still very drinkable and cheap ~Miller High Life. My preferred beer, however, is Shiner Bock and I believe that you can still find it for under a buck.

Ever notice how many beer/wine surveys are posted here? They always seem to end up being long threads. We have some serious drinkers in this crowd.

I am certainly not an expert on beer and feel that all of it is a matter of your taste buds. However, I do prefer a darker beer like Amber Bock. Couple of my other favorites are Yuengling and Warsteiners (my all time favorite) in a nice frosty mug. Strange that someone has not brought up the subject of bottle/can vs draft beer. I really can't tell the difference but some of my beer drinking buddies swear by the "beer on tap". They won't drink bottled beer, unless it's free of course.

After a few of those 40 oz's, sure! My asset allocation is 100% gold (teeth).

Nice choices, and yes, the OP said "best for the buck" (value), not "best cheap beers".

Hey, I'm also in Northern IL and my fridge is always stocked with Belgian brews. You're welcome any time, I'm buying.
