I actually like Stout at my wine cellar's temp (43F), IaS :-)
My suggestions not available in your area? Ask ... Squeaky wheel & all that. I can get Dogfish Head brews here in California now, because me (and quite a few other people) kept asking about it at Whole Foods ... Dogfish is another brewing company to try to find. Their IPAs are awesome. They add the hops bill at regular intervals during brewing. Normally, I'm not fond of "fruit ales", but their "Raison d'etra" and "Aprihop" are worth hunting for. I like their "Indian Brown" so much that I have managed to clone it in my home brewery ... but at near twice their alcohol level (oops! was an accident, I swear!). I hope to have it in production for sale this year. dogfishhead.com
Anchor is good, I always have a selection of their various brews in my beer cooler ... They use Lager yeast in their so-called "Steam" beer, but brew at ale temperatures. Strangely, the fusels & esters don't give me a hangover. Gut feeling is there are few aldehydes in their products. The company started during the Goldrush era, in San Francisco. It was saved from oblivion by one of the Maytags (of washer/dryer and Blue Cheese fame). I like having their Liberty Ale available when grilling informally outdoors.
I have never tried Brooklyn or Goose Island, will keep an eye open. Ta.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is my goto beer when East of the Sierra Nevada range. It's mass-produced and available throughout the US, but quite drinkable. The wife & I split a 12oz bottle of their "Bigfoot" barleywine during the main course when I cook duck or goose for dinner.
Of the rest of yours, I'm not fond of Flying Dog. It's pedestrian, at best, with the label art being the gimmick that sells the product, not the brew. I'm not fond of chilies in my beer ... if you have to hide the yeast, malt & hops with chilies, you probably have problems in your brewing process (likewise for the idiots who think that putting lime wedges in their clear-glass bottles will mask the UV generated methyl mercaptin when out in the sun ... I'm squinting at YOU Corona!). Likewise Blue Moon's orange slice. Skunk just doesn't belong as a flavo(u)ring agent in beer.
Just my opinions, mind ... but I HTH :-)
 Sam Adams, on the other hand, always gives me a headache the next morning, even after one, single, solitary 12oz beer.
