    Hey guys I'm new to the world of beer, I have only really tried IPA's and like DFH , stone, and founders. I want to try some porters, stouts, ales, something besides IPA's. Any suggestions ?

    If you like Founders, give their Porter a try. It was one of my first porters and I loved it.

    Founders Porter is awesome. Along with Anchor Porter. As far as stouts go I'd say a good starting point is the always fantastic Sierra Nevada stout.

    Enjoy those porters and stouts - They're my personal favorite styles

    You can't go wrong with Yeungling. It's a good, smooth lager. Try anything you can find from Asheville or from the Foothills brewery.

    Everything from Stone is good, if you liked their IPA, try Arrogant Bastard, Sublimely Self-Righteous, Smoked Porter, and Levitation Ale. From Founders, their Porter is a must try, and Dirty Bastard is really good as well. When Breakfast Stout comes around, that is one of my all time favorites. For well-priced and accessible stouts and porters, I also suggest Sierra Nevada's Stout and Porter as both are really solid.

    Sierra Nevada- Their East Coast brewery is going to be in your state.

    Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter and Oatmeal Stout
    ZachKelly, Schwantz and Givemebeer like this.
