    3 Floyds
    Founders

    Stone. There are definitely some styles of beer I don't care for. Fortunately, I don't think Stone bothers with any of them.

    3 Floyds makes beers in styles I don't usually enjoy, but their take on them are delicious.

    Also love Founders and Lagunitas

    In Wisconsin...Lakefront is the only one on your list that I would agree with...have had enough unlikeable beers from the others that I would check first.

    Founders is my no-brainer.
    But, one of my new favorites is Jack's Abbey. I've been happily working my way through their line-up recently.

    I would say I would try almost anything I see that is new, I would also that say that that selection is limited....

    I will blindly, and gladly, try anything from Stone, Dogfish Head, and Sierra Nevada. They've given me full confidence to do so.

    Not sure if it was mentioned, but IMO Hoppin Frog doesn't make a bad beer.

    Aside from the obvious choices of Cantillon, Hill Farmstead, Russian River, Three Floyds, and Cigar City I would have to say Upright, Hair of the Dog, and Cascade. Basically, I just need to visit Portland.

    was going to say goose island... but then I tried madame rose. I don't blame it on them, but that was my epiphany that some styles of beer are very much not for me, and I therefore likely won't like everything from any one brewery.

    Just about any brewery really depending on the style. Long as the style is something I would drink or not be disgusted by, I would try it. Long as it wasn't something like "BA Dogshit Stout" or "Mothball flavored pale" I would give it a shot.
