    obviously we all have different tastes, but name a beer or two that you would never grab off the shelves but for some reason everyone else would.

  8. Blasphemy..
  9. Anything Belgian. Tastes like beer from someone who homebrews and needs more practice.

    Pretty much any Belgian style beer. I know they are considered to many as THE greatest style and most renowned beer out there but I've never developed a taste for them. Also Hail to the Redskins!!!
  16. GI Sofie and Matilda. To be honest, there were other farmhouse ales/saisons that I had that weren't as highly rated that I liked much better. They didnt have that funky off-putting yeast smell that the GI beers had either.

    St Bernardus Abt 12. that was a very rare drain pour for me. thankfully it was only a 12 oz
  18. Southern Tier Creme Brûlée. I have a total sweet tooth and this one is way over the top IMO.

    Not a fan if bourbon stouts, but that's a stylistic preference

    Same here! I had it for the first time last weekend, and it very nearly became my first drainpour ever. Apparently it's better after it's been aged, so maybe that was my problem.

  22. You're right. I love it anyway, but I had one in my beer fridge for a year. Totally different and totally amazing.

    Do you like other quads?

    For now, but time heals all. Maybe one day we can look past our differences, and move past this.

    We'll get there though, we'll get there....

  34. Two Hearted. Had it a few times and tastes medicinal to me.
  35. Pumking. I've tried it twice. Drain pour both times. There are other pumpkin beers I do like, so it's not a style thing.

    I respect your feelings, but that's a shock to me. I think it's because I first fell in love with craft beer through tasting Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale. But I understand, if you don't like a brewery's offerings, you don't like them.

    I've not tried stuff that everyone talks about, and I don't find it important to do so.
