    Not Your Father's Root Beer or something sweet like Southern Tier Creme Brulee

    if she hates beer and always has then i wouldn't try to offer her some of the stuff i drink but if you must then any suggestion already given should work. i think i fine with my wife liking wine for the most part, it gives me a chance to wine taste the stuff i buy for her.

    I second this

    Schofferhofer and Stiegl Radler are decent enough and taste like a grapefruit soda/beer

    I third this, no way she won't love some Stiegl Radler. That stuff is actually pretty darn tasty.

    I second the Well's Banana Bread. The ladies seem to like that

    I don't know if she likes chocolate but Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout is pretty much chocolate soda...and am not being's a really good chocolate beer that tastes like straight up chocolate and it uses natural flavors to achieve it.

    If she likes coffee you might try some coffee stouts...there are tons of threads discussing which ones are the best so you could check a few of them.

    This. A thousand times this.

    Malbecs are typically a little sweeter than you typical reds (i.e. Cab. Sauv, Shiraz, Merlot) so I would recommend something like Lindemans Faro Lambic.

    Wife hates beer, is convinced that she is allergic to hops. So she drinks cider.

    You should be able to get your hands on some Ommegang Rosetta. My wife is not a beer drinker, but she'll pound a glass of that stuff.

    My wife is really getting into craft beer now so I constantly have to share with her! :stuck_out_tongue: She really likes stouts, especially the holiday stouts. Her favorite is Fremont Cinnamon-Coffee BBomb

    Everyone love beer. They just don't know it yet.

    One I haven't heard here, though others have mentioned ideas in a similar vein (i.e., dubbels/dark Belgians for Malbec lovers), is dunkel lagers / dunkel weizens. My wife has a random love of German beer (I say random because she doesn't like most other styles), and she particularly likes the dunkels.

    A good dry/funky cider should be a nice intro into the array of crazy flavors in well made craft beer. My wife loves that shit. She can't drink beer due to severe gluten allergy. Contrary to other posters, I wish my wife could share in drinking my beer. At least then I wouldn't be accumulating 10x faster than I am drinking by myself.

    My wife likes Lakewood's Bourbon Barrel Aged Mistress.

    When we started dating my wife told me her favorite beer was corona light. She always thought I was crazy for spending money on beer because she thought it was all the same and awful(other than her corona light, of course). She has always been into good wine though from her father who is a total wine snob. last year we were in San Fran and I talked her and friends into stopping for lunch at the Russian River Brewery on our way to a friends wedding in Sonoma. She fell in love with the wine barrel aged sours. Now as long as I track down a wine barreled aged sour every so often she doesn't mind my hobby so much. The supplication's, consecrations, interludes, etc . . . Aren't cheap but totally worth the price. Happy wife = fully stocked beer closet
