    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.

    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.

    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.

    As far as those I would drink on a regular basis:

    Lambic

    Weizen

    Maybe a different list if the choice is among styles with the biggest flavor.

    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

    Lambic (gueuze specifically)
    American sour/wild style
    Flanders red

    Though sometimes barley wine or stout edges in to the #3 spot... usually in the winter when I'm craving those styles :)
