    Shiner Bock and Alaskan Amber... both good and easy to drink beers. She's more of a marguerita girl
     
  2. In no particular order:

    -Schlafly Coffee Stout
    -Boulevard Zon
    -Schlafly Scotch Ale (wee heavy...now sadly draft-only)
     
  3. She only drinks sours.

    Her favorites in order are
    Fou Foune, Beatification, Supplication, Temptation, Cascade Blueberry, Cascade Strawberry, Sanctification and Consecration

    Tank 7. But she loves IPAs too. Only thing she doesn't like are big stouts.

    I'll bet my wife hasn't drank 12 beers in the 14 years we have been married. I drink for both of us.;)
     
    Marti403 and lonewolfcry like this.
  9. Victory Moonglow (which we haven't gotten around here) and Lambics.

    FBS, but she likes pretty much any beer I like, except for barleywines. She told me her friend told her she probably couldnt tell the difference between craft and bmc after she had a few and she told her friend she was nuts. I was so proud!
     
  12. The closest I could get her to a decent beer was Indeed's Old Friend - their winter ale (very good).
    Otherwise she's happy drinking her Coors Light - which is fine by me, I guess - less of a hit on our $$$.
     
  13. My wife hides miller light in cabinets because she is embraced she still likes it... (funny)
    She loves bourbon and cognac aged stouts and barlywine.
    Sadface ); less for me! She hates IPA (score!)
    But drinks all my Belgian!
     
  14. Anything that I don't like. It's a blessing and a curse. Nah, it's a blessing!

    rolandboy Savant (250) Michigan Oct 11, 2012

    founders breakfast stout and odd side ales chocolate koffie stout. i fear (and my wallet/cellar fears) this is a gateway to barrel aged stouts.
     
  17. Parabola/Sucaba/FW15 equally followed closely by BCBS 08 and Fruet. I would reverse the order, but something about that FW barrel treatment trips her trigger just so. Thanks to the guys at the Firestone event who bought her another round of FW15. It made both of our nights.;)

  18. Probably Victory at Sea. She didnt like the Cherry Rye we drank tonight. I got half of hers too. I loved it a lot.

    She also said Flower Power and Pliny.

    My ex LOVED Wild Blue. Not saying that "ex" and "Wild Blue" had any correlation....

    My wife likes her DIPAs and sours. Thankfully we live in the general area that makes her favorites, which are:

    Pliny the elder and Consecration. She'll also enjoy a BA barleywine like Abacus.

    She leaves the stouts to me though.

    None. (sigh)

    arfenhouse Savant (285) California Oct 29, 2012

    My girl likes almost all stouts and pale ales, Young's DC Stout and Ballast Point Yellowtail are her favorites. Pretty decent beers for me fall back on.

    My wife strangely enjoys Aventinus. She doesn't like beer otherwise.

    My wife hates anything to do with hops so her current favorite is New Glarus Belgian Red and Serendipity and anything pumpkin. Other than that, on St Patrick's Day, Kuhnhenn makes a Lucky Charms Ale that is the best thing she's ever had. She'll offer our car for a growler of it if I don't keep close tabs on her. It is magically delicious, though.
     
  27. Lutter

    Lutter Advocate (650) Texas Jun 30, 2010

    Anything traditional and German (she studied in Hanover in college and is of German in descent, so she's uppity that German style beers are the best styles of beers)

    Sünner Kölsch
    Köstritzer Schwarzbier
    Ayinger Urweiss
    Weihenstephaner Vitus
    Live Oak Hefeweizen
    Live Oak Primus
    Live Oak Pilz

    ... and anything that Shiner makes! (Bock and Blonde being her favorites)

    Hates IPAs. But I love tricking her ("oh, this beer is so sweet and smooth! Have a sip." *takes a sip* "OH MY GOD, YOU BASTARD!")
     
  28. Her first craft was Merry Monks, which remains one of her favorites. Now the only thing she doesn't really like in a beer is a heavy coffee presence.

    When my wife drank beer she was a witbier fan mostly Blue Moon or Hoegaarden, however she doesn't stray far from her 1st love vodka, though Malbac has joined the party lately.
     
  31. ZPag

    ZPag Zealot (95) New York Dec 3, 2012

    Rare Vos
    Well's Banana Brea Beer
    21st Amendment American Bitter
    Or UFO Rasperry

    Rare Vos is her go to around here since we live about 20 minutes from Ommegang so everyone has it on tap.
     
  32. RockAZ

    RockAZ Savant (320) Arizona Jan 6, 2009

  33. Budweiser. That's all. Of the 260-something beers that I've reviewed, she's sipped and spit out (and nearly vomited a few times) on about 99% of them.
     
  34. Anchor Steam and Anchor Summer when it's available.
     
  35. My G/F is obsessed with DFH Olde School, DDBA and/or really ANY barleywine. She loves a good RIS stout, especially Parabola (who doesn't really?) but lucky for me and my wallet, it's not a year-round thing.

    Shandy's...one of my least favorites, but it makes splitting flights interesting.
