    Would you guys be surprise that one of her favorites is Baladin's Isaac? Nope hehe and she also likes Kastel Rouge!
     
  2. My girlfriend likes most beers that she's tried except for IPAs and most pilsners. Her favorites are hefeweizens, witbiers, and stouts.

    Her favorite beer: Bell's Winter White Ale. She seems to think it has more banana esters than any other beer that she's had.

    West coast IPAs/DIPAs, sours and Belgians. The only thing I don't have to share is stouts and porters.
     
  5. Troegs Dreamweaver is probably her all time favorite, but she is starting to get into limited amounts of sours. The other day she said "can we open a Gueuze tonight?" That is a very scary thought

    My wifey likes Sours, Espresso Yeti, & Orval. Used to be a huge hop head, not so much lately..
    but also gets w/ Sauvignon Blanc & Cocktails, so the beer stash isn't too depleted generally ;)
     
  7. My Girl is a sucker for 90 min.....she went to college in delaware so thats her soft spot.

    I'd say either Brouwerij Verhaeghe - Duchesse De Bourgogne or Lost Abbey - Red Poppy.

    My girl's faves are Zombie Dust and Dragon's Milk.

    She thought Blue Moon was awesome before I met her...then I offered her the red pill.

  12. My wife usually likes stouts and porters, though she will sometimes go for a wheat beer (Oberon, Gumballhead). But when asked she says her favorite beer is Pliney

    My wife has a slobbering love affair with citra hops, and owns half our brewery, so her favorite, pseudoSue, usually graces her lips and makes for some hoppy kisses ;).

    Coors Light...as long as the rockies are blue.
     
  18. As the "hubs" in question, I would like to note that (a) not only am I currently drinking a Celebration, but (b) I've been in charge of a number of stout acquisitions over the past week including a Black Ops and BCBS Cherry Rye to name a few, not to mention a couple of sours along the way...

    My wife loves hops. Her favorite beer is probably Portsmouth Brewery's Bottle Rocket IPA, closely followed by Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA. Though, Nugget Nectar is a family favorite too.
     
  20. my wife always wants a sip of whatever is in my glass. She doesnt want anything for herself, she just wants my drink

    My girlfriend goes nuts for some St. Louis Framboise... and that about it.
     
  23. She is a wino but Celebration ale is the most frequent grab. Can't fault that.

    My wife just told me CCB Cafe Con Leche was "way too bitter like beer". I've been trying to convert her for a while, but this pretty much gave me no hope :-(

    Zach136 Advocate (555) Georgia Jun 17, 2012

    Boon Kriek Lambic... on draught. So she doesn't get her favorite that often. She enjoyed Saisons and Tripels until she had a few of them both on an empty stomach... Now she pretty much sticks to sours and ciders.

    If I asked her, my gf would probably say Ten Fidy, Black Cauldron, and Nosferatu.

    My wife loves IPAs. Probably a coin flip between Sucks, Sculpin and Flower Power.
     
  31. None of them.

    DelMontiac Advocate (620) Oklahoma Oct 22, 2010

    She hates all beer which is great. Beers never go missing and it saves me money.

    She has two: Duchesse de Bourgogne and Hopslam. Mighty fine choices, I would say.

    My gf prefers sour beers. Right now her favorite is Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge. Thankfully we have a local bar that constantly has new sours beers on tap. She also has a few select IPA that she likes. Thank goodness she stopped drinking budlight!!!!!

    LeRose Advocate (545) Massachusetts Nov 24, 2011

    It was Blue Moon, but has expanded to include various wittes and hefeweizens. She also went on quite a pumpkin spree this fall and liked quite a few. She will try most any style, though.
