Whenever I see jalapeno or higher Scoville pepper listed in a beer, I suggest the Spiced, Herb & Vegetable Beer category.
I have actually had a lager beer complimented by a visitor to my house as a "Real beer-flavored beer for a change".
As to narrowmindedness, I had a good friend who had an incredible wine collection - quite highly valued, to the point that insuring it while in his wine cellar (basement) became unavailable and he had to move the collection to more secure off-premises storage. His view on wine was simply: "there are two kinds of wine - wines you like and wines you don't". My wife ascribes to that simplicity.
