Yea Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (the green bottle) is probably the one gateway beer that got me into the good stuff ages ago. I've had Sweetwater 420 when I traveled for work down in SC, but I've never seen it up here (MD has HORRIBLE liquor laws so our selection isn't the greatest), i remember liking it a lot. Troegs is a PA brewery, not sure if they're nationwide.
