Since you're both American I'll go with an American beer I pick up once in a while. Brooklyn Lager. It's decent. Simple easy to drink taste that goes very well with steak.
I usually have Guiness, Creemore, Steamwhistle or Pilsner Urquel in the house. My wife drinks Rolling Rock, but it tastes like water to me.
If you ever come up to Toronto try out Beau's on tap. It's not easy to find, but it's amazing dinner beer.
