After 3 months without a beer, I would choose whatever beer is available, exclusively!

Seriously, probably Anchor Steam.

I have had some experience with this. The answer is ... It doesn't matter which beer I'd drink. Let me explain. I like to spend a week in the backcountry every year with just what I can carry. I was hiking on the Appalachian Trail a few years ago when I tasted what seemed like the best beer ever. It was a Yuengling. I know, an American light lager is not my favorite brew, either (I do respect the Yuengling family brewery). But at that time, at that place, after drinking water I filtered and treated myself, a cold brew was incredible. Now, sitting in my overstuffed chair-and-a-half in my air-conditioned home, a Russian imperial stout tastes wonderful but isn't nearly as rewarding.

Similar story for me. Spend several days in the back country and stopped at the first gas station we found out in the  middle of no where. The best beer they had was a six pack of MGD. It was ice cold and was one of the best beers I ever drank. Another time I was on a motorcycle ride from Alabama through Tennessee then North Carolina then routed through Georgia (all in one morning/afternoon) and stopped in a neat little German replikca village called Hellen in GA and was served an Erdinger Hefewezen and it was pure manna.
