If you don't mind spending a little extra, Anchor Brewing's porter is the best of its genre I've ever had, but it is pretty dark and heavy. Black Butte porter (Deschutes Brewing) has more mass appeal. Anchor steam is an excellent lighter beer, but it probably won't be light enough for most people. Scrimshaw pilsner by North Coast Brewing is easily the best example of its type available on the West Coast. Scrimshaw has a lighter, softer taste profile than Anchor steam, which could be important when you have people who are used to macrobrewed crap.

Gah. I can taste the adjuncts right now just thinking about Coors and Bud and the like.
