    My guesses:
    The lager: A is either Ninkasi Helles Belles or Weinstephaner OG. B is Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve.
    The Belgian: A is Blue Moon. B is possibly Andechs Vollbier Weiss.
    The IPA: A is Pliney the Elder. B is Sierra Nevada Torpedo.
    Dark Lager: A could be Weinstephaner Dopplebock. B is likely Negra Modelo.
    Barrel-aged: A could be Deschuttes Abyss. B -- not really sure.
    Sour: No idea on either. The fact that A is only $1/bottle tells me nothing. I never drink sours.

    I wonder what he would rate Pilsner Urquell, the real Pilsner beer from Pilsen. They use golden cans and green bottles, so they don't have one in this video.

    I really appreciate that he was able to appreciate beers within the context of their price point. His mentioning that the barrel aged beers were in two completely different categories when he saw the price was very professional and a great perspective.
