OK.  Can't miss this one.
Entered into this fine art almost 40 years ago at the eager young age of 15 (it was a different time), so I speak with some experience.
College was Bud, Pabst, Olympia, (remember Schlitz?  Once the largest in the world.). Tried LOTS of the fancy-shmancy stuff.  Some are good, some are not.  I even made my own for several years.  Some of the best I had.  But I figured out that if I paid myself $15/ hr as brewmeister, I was paying about $9/ bottle.  Wasn't worth it.  
Settled in w/ Bud, but got tired of paying for those Super Bowl commercials. 
Ever had Red Dog, from Plank Road Brewery?  I rather like it and it's inexpensive.  Miller (now the largest brewery in the world based in S. Africa) bought it a few years ago, but apparently haven't changed the recipe.

Sierra - favorite
Fat Tire - favorite
GB marzen - very good alternate
Pyramid Hefeweizen - great on a warm evening, after work
Harp Lager (I know it's Irish) - great on a Friday lunch w/ burger and fries
lots of other micro brews that mainly those here in the SF area would know of...
can't say I've tried any of the Michelob "micros..."  but, Mr. Sprague has a little bit of influence...

OK!!  Beer is something that I can really get into.  Consider some of my favorites
In addition to those mentioned:
Wisconsin: Leinenkugels & Berghoff
Missouri: Boulevard Brewery
I even have to tip my hat to the mega brews like the Michelob Porter and Amber Bock.

I welcome the beer topic. I'm glad to see we've moved on from the topic of Global Warming, fossil fuels and Republican Politics. My Inbox was getting really cluttered.
My local favorite is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Locally we've also got Gordon Biersch for good summer ales and such. Wheat beer is good too.
You know, I think it's "Miller Time".

A great microbrewer is New Belgium in Fort Collins, CO. The Fat Tire brew is more and more common these days. What I miss most is Sunshine Wheat:(

The beer in the US???  If you're talking about Natty Light or Bud or Coors, i'll take a Labatt's any day...  but, there are plenty of tasty adult beverages 'round here.  (mainly microbrews...)
