    I am married to BA member abcjmh06. (Finally got him to join!)

    I like doppelbocks, bocks, weizenbocks, stouts (imperial, barrel aged, coffee, milk etc), IPAs, marzens, pale ales, pumpkin ales, schwarzbiers, rauchbiers, some lambics, berliner weisse...

    I am really starting to enjoy strong ales, barleywines, and flanders oud bruins.

    I haven't ventured very far into Belgian beer territory, such as sours, but would like to in the near future.

    Beers with spices= fun. Juniper, anise, cardamom, cloves...win! Gruits are pretty good too. Odd styles, such as Short's Key Lime Pie, are also fun.

    I am on a quest to try every German beer style still in existence (see www.germanbeerinstitute.com)

    I am notorious for not posting finished reviews, despite ample time to do so.

    Beer wants: http://beeradvocate.com/user/beers?ba=Jwren5&view=W Just because it isn't on my want list doesn't mean I wouldn't want to try it! I like surprises! :)

    Shirt size: small or medium.

    Other hobbies include scrapbooking, cooking/baking, and sitting on the back of my husband's motorcycle. Blackhawks, Bears, and White Sox fan.
