Different 6-pack each week, recommendations?

Cool thanks. I'm from the Bay Area, if that helps any.

Different 6-pack each week, recommendations?

I'm tired of drinking Coors and Natty Ice and I feel like I want to try and sample new beers (perhaps microbrews?). A Trader Joe's just opened up right next to where I live and I think my budget can now handle some better brews. I've decided that for a New Year's resolution, I will drink a different 6 pack each week. I've given up on the traditional resolutions and decided I will have some fun this year. I have no beer knowledge whatsoever besides my likes and dislike of common brands.

Likes: PBR, Blue Moon

Dislikes: Corona

Indifferent: Coors, Bud, Miller

So Hounds, what do you guys recommend for a good introduction to the expanded world of beer? Maybe a winter lager to kick off the new year?

Budget: Any 6-pack under $10

Travel friendly Pate and Cheese

I found their website below.

Also, do you have any recommendations on which types to get? Their selection looks quite large. I'd like to purchase mainly pate, but I'll opt for maybe 1-2 cans of foie gras.

Travel friendly Pate and Cheese

I have a friend back in the US that really loves pate and cheeses and asked me to pick up some for him when I go back in 2 weeks. What are some brands that you guys recommend that could survive a plan ride across the Atlantic and are easily available in Paris. Thanks! Also, if you guys have anything else to recommend that's also travel friendly, it'd be much appreciated. He loves to try new things.
