I'm not much of a beer guy, but hefeweizen and wheat beers are what I go for because they lay off the hops and just focus on that malty and bready taste. Franziskaner is one the few beers I enjoy indulging in; I don't have to pretend to like it. I have a very low toleration for hops; I can't even finish a bottle of Samuel Adams, and that's supposed to be one of the better beers. I just steer clear from IPAs. All I need is a scotch that burns.

I know here, Yuengling Traditional Lager is extremely popular.
Though I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk of the hype comes from the fact that it's hard to get without somebody going to the east coast and bringing it back with them.
