    Your favourite beer styles?

    Okay, so there are a lot of types of beer out there, and I'm sure there are a lot of folks here who, like me, loves a very wide variety of beer styles. I'd say I like almost all of them - done right, it's hard to fault a good beer of any style. But of course almost all of us also have our favourites or go-to beer styles.

    Mine:

    Summer: Saisons, lambics/sours
    Winter: Imperial stouts, Belgian quads

    How about you?

    Some options: Pilsners, pale ales, cream ales, brown ales, red ales, IPAs, Imperial IPAs, Saisons, Lambics, Dark IPAs, Barleywines, Stouts, Imperial Stouts, Dubbels, Tripels, Quads, Lagers, Heffeweizen, Sour / wild ales, Bocks, ESBs, altbier, scotch ale... OK that's all I can come up with off the top of my head

    Re: Your favourite beer styles?

    For me, my top 3 are:

    Stouts- Sweet/Specialty/Milk/etc.
    Imported Hefe
    Belgian style ales

    No particular order.

    I tend to prefer Porters, Stouts, and IPA's in that order. But it's always fun to try new styles as well

    It really changes a lot for me over time. I tend towards beers on the maltier side, like doppelbock or sweet stouts. Right now I'm on an English bitter kick.

    This. For a while there I wasn't into smoked beers much but I'm starting to come around on those now.

    If it's a good example of the style, I'll drink it.

    Summer - Hefes or a big IPA, although some of the Belgian's have been making the rotation lately.
    Winter - Imperial Stouts and Spiced Ales

    Seconded. Granted though, IPAs and Stouts tend to be most common in my fridge, I'm always up to try something new/different.

    Barleywines, IPA's, Belgians, and Dopplebocks. I like stouts, but not often. Usually during the colder months.

    I normally drink Sierra or Stone IPA.

    What do you guys think of the 24oz beers you find at safeway they look like good IPA's but have never tried them since I dont recognize any.

    What breweries brew the IPA's you're wondering about?

    Not sure I'll take a closer look but they all seem to have crzy names and graffiti on the labels.

    If you ever wonder about a beer just look it up on Beer Advocate, Rate Beer, or Untapped. Some supermarkets actually have great beers. I've seen Sierra Nevada, Firestone Walker, Chimay, Unibroue, and countless other fantastic breweries them. If your area has good local breweries, they're more than likely to be stocked in supermarkets. Just make sure you check the dates. Most beers with higher alcohol contents can be stored in excess of 2 years, but those with hop focus (IPA's) are optimally meant to be consumed within 3-4 months of their brew date.
