What's your Favorite Style of Beer?
« on: January 15, 2010, 11:28:37 AM »
Most people have a favorite.

I realize there are some folks that have many favorites as is the case with myself, but if you had to narrow it down to one style that was your favorite...what would it be?

Me being the hop head that I am...I am an IPA kinda guy. I love hops, fresh hops and lots of them.  ;D

It varies throughout the year.  Winter is Oatmeal Stout, summer is IPA. 

But to narrow it down, most of the year I like IPA's, not too bitter but with loads of hop aroma and flavor.

Definitely IPA. Pilsner is up there too.

IIPA, or some may say DIPA ....  Love the various combinations of "C" hops and Amarillo! 
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Stout, especially Oatmeal Stout.  Even so, the first time I had a Caledonian 80/- on tap (& I mean imported from Scotland), I proclaimed that I had discovered a new all time favorite beer.

My first bottle of Rochefort 6 was close to the same epiphany-like experience as the Caledonian.

At the moment my favorite is Wit.  But I am new to home brewing, having spent the last couple of months reading everything I can and buying/making equipment.  This weekend I will be brewing my first batch, an English brown ale.  So I am sure that my favorite is be changing on a regular basis.

It is hard for me to nail one style down, but if I could get a couple it would be Wee Heavy or Dubbel. But I love IPAs, porters, and barley wines too. Its a mood thing for me, but I have no problem drinking a RIS in the middle of summer, or a Wit in the dead of winter

Dubbel without a doubt.  Followed by Porters and Scottish Ales.
