I'd second the Belgium beer recommendation, some of the best in the world comes from this small country with over 350 breweries. If you have a Trader Joe's near you try the NY Belgium-style beer, Ommegang, that they stock. It's about half the price of Chimay and tastes great.
I also like any hoppy pale ale style beer (e.g., Sierra Nevada) or a pilsner with pizza. Lately I've been drinking a German pils called Warsteiner. Of course, good pizza will compensate for bad beer -- well, maybe partially compensate!
