DIPAs and imperial stouts are easily one and two, respectively. After that its mood based.. Right now, in cold weather, it's Baltic porters. During the summer it was Hell or high watermelon. Mmm golf...
It changes pretty frequently, but right now I'll say, in no particular order, my favorites are ESB, porter, and dubbel.
Dark English Mild
with Quad following very close behind
Easy number 1 for me is IPA. Stouts would come in second. The third might vary depending on season or mood but I would go with Porters most of the time.
1. On tap
2. in a can
3. in a bottle
but seriously style wise: Experimental, milk stouts, and just about anything that promises to taste good.
Flemish Oude Bruin
[When they figure out how to make a Quad IPA, I'll adjust this list accordingly...]
I appreciate and enjoy all beer styles except for light lager, lager and pilsner.
Stouts of all kind
Saisons are a close runner up.
Ipa's, stouts and porters..
American Wild Ales
You get another go. Stouts and Porters are the same style.
Mild, bitter, stout/porter
2. Imperial Stout
3. English Barleywine
If I had to pick 3 they would be porters (most varieties), stouts (same..most varieties), and belgian quad ales.... a close 4th would be farmhouse ales.
I would have to say:
1. American amber ale
English Pale Ale
American Pale Ale
India Pale Ale
1) Stouts/Porters (too similar to count as 2)
3) Brown Ales
3 Old Ale
As far as those I would drink on a regular basis:
Maybe a different list if the choice is among styles with the biggest flavor.
Belgian Strong Dark Ale
1. Porters and Stouts, esp. Oatmeal and Cream Stouts
2. Scottish Ale/Wee Heavy
3. Anything in the Bock family
Honorable Mention for Bohemian Pilsners
American wild ale (read brett fermentations)
American pale ale
I really expected to see IRS up there. Wow. Learn something new every day I guess.
All forms IPA/DIPA,BIPA, English,West Coast, you name it
RIS , especially barrel aged varietals
Anything with Rye in it
IPA - it's my go to style, if I'm buying a six pack of something it's more than likely this
Stout - another go to style, big stouts always make me smile, and barrel aged stuff is even better
Saisons - love the distinct flavor of a saison and have been lucky to have great ones by Fantome and Hill Farmstead
1. Belgian Strong Dark Ales
2. Imperial Stouts
(1, 2, and 3 subject to change without notice.)
This changes with the seasons for me, but I would have to say:
Lambic (gueuze specifically)
American sour/wild style
Though sometimes barley wine or stout edges in to the #3 spot... usually in the winter when I'm craving those styles
Belgian Strong Dark Ales
Russian imperial stout
