    But Heineken isn't German beer, it's Dutch.
    However, you should get Beck's over there:
    # Beck’s Premier light – eine kalorienreduzierte Variante des klassischen Pilsners speziell für den US-Markt
    # Beck’s Dark – ein dunkles Lagerbier, das mit dem Slogan „#1 imported German dark beer“ beworben wird
    # St. Pauli Girl Bier – eine speziell für den US-Markt hergestellte Version des klassischen Pilsners.

    That's a very difficult question to answer. The way the U.S. liquor market is structured, everything needs a distributor...but the distributors vary from state to state, and even sections of states. So, sometimes even American beer/wine/liquor is not available all over the country, if it does not have a distributor in each state/region/whatnot. For example, I can buy certain beer/wine in New Jersey, but not New York (and vice versa) despite the states being next to each other. So, while I can get a variety of German beers here, Pennsylvania (which is again, right next door) might not be able to get as many.

    If you named a bunch of German beers, I can give you a better idea of what is available in NJ....we definitely have becks, st pauli, etc though.

    i guess it's all about the dream

    Off the top of my head I can only think of a few, but one of my local supermarkets has a pretty large selection. Right now I can think of Warsteiner and Erdinger.

    I remember seeing lowenbrau and Hirschbrau, at my work we sell st. paulie however that sounds more of an americanized german style beer. Becks is pretty common but rather disgusting.

    German beers I have successfully found in the US:

    Beck's
    Löwenbräu
    Erdinger
    Franziskaner
    Paulaner
    Edelweiss
    Hacker-Pschorr
    Warsteiner
    Spaten

    Most of them were either in Wisconsin or in a German restaurant/pub. The only one I regularly see in Minnesota liquor stores is Beck's. :-/

    My favorite beers EVER are weissbiers, and I can drink them like water... but they are so damn hard to find in the US. I get really excited when I find Erdinger or Franziskaner here... but it's really hard to find, and quite expensive.
