Right off the top, let me say that I am no great beer expert. I HAVE been drinking more suds lately and enjoying them, but I am nowhere near as well traveled in beer as I am in single-malt whisky. That said, I wanted to start a discussion about beer, especially since I understand it to be an OLD tradition (started with the Egyptians, so I hear) and one which I do enjoy.
Among my favorites are:
Don't ask me why about that last, other than it's a bit too hoppy for my taste. I like their dark brews. They have a Honey Porter which is lovely and (I think) an Oatmeal Stout which, while it's no match for Guinness, has its moments.
As to more pedestrian fare, make mine Bud or Coors (the ORIGINAL, NOT Coors Light!), please. Either work GREAT in front of a baseball or football game, especially with a dog in hand. I should mention that the brew which bears my surname I wouldn't hit a dead dog with!
Strangely the doctors have decided that I can drink a N/A beer and it won't hurt me. Just for the taste of it "memories" I've found MIller's Sharps to be about the best. I don't drink them often and usually have 2. Recently I actually had 4. I've drank these maybe 5 times in the last 6 months.
Never tried any N/A beer myself, and I hope I never have to resort to that. Given your situation, I'm glad to hear you've found a suitable substitute. SKAAL!
