Since January 1 of this year, I have gone on a quest to see how many different beers I can try. I just crossed the 160 mark... and that is different kinds of beers, not each individual one. Most were bought as six packs, but I don't put repeats back on the list.
Some of my favorite breweries are Unibroue, Dogfish Head, Rogue, Weyerbacher, Troegs, Shipyard, Three Floyds, Victory, Great Divide, Thirsty Dog, Ommegang and anything brewed in Belgium... some of those are local for me in the Northeast, but Arizona should have a nice selection.
See if you can find a mix-and-match store. I found one in Hagerstown, MD where I can buy any six individual beers for about $7. That has dramatically increased my new-beer consumption because I used to buy a sixpack of one type or, if I had to buy in PA, it had to be a whole case.
Also, check out http://www.beeradvocate.com. It is my favorite website ever... it has detailed descriptions and user reviews of every beer ever made. It's a little beer-snobbish, but not as much as other sites and is pretty helpful in comparing different styles and beers.

Here in Phoenix/Tempe I found these stores (AJ's Fine Foods and Sun Devil Liquor) that have a wide variety of Micro's. I was in there for 40 minutes just trying to pick 6 beers. I can't wait for every Saturday now.
I have been drinking a lot of Fat Tire lately and like it it a lot. I also liked Skinny Dip (their Summer brew) a lot. I decided to just get the entire New Belgium lineup for this Saturday. They actually carry 7 styles of New Belgium and I wanted to get stuff I haven't tried so I didn't get Fat Tire or Skinny Dip so to fill out my six pack I got Anchor Portor (I love Anchor Steam).
I know there was another thread on this somwhere, but if you guys have any good suggestions throw them at me.
My next adventure into the market I plan on attacking the likes of Dogfish Head, Oak Creek, Anderson Brewery, Left Handed, Rogue, Lagunitas, Flying Dog, and Speak Easy.
