How many of the beer styles (listed on BA) have you had?
Are you interested in trying every style?
Holy moly! This is too much work for a Sunday Funday!!
Not sure how many are listed, but I have had 81, and it definitely doesn't seem like that many different styles! Still, I know there are far more that I haven't tried! The beer journey has only just begun!
Everyone should be interested in trying every style other than pumpkin.
I noticed today that my style count on BA is "97" and here is what I am missing:
Happoshu - looks like a pretty rare style with the best one with more than 1 review weighing in at 3.79. I'll probably only go after this style if I have literally tried every other style.
Japanese Rice Lager- Pretty sure I have easy access to Sapporo- but-eh.
Euro Strong Lager
Low Alcohol Beer
Scottish Gruit/Ancient Herbed Ale- I've been kind of interested in picking up the Williams Brothers Variety pack but still haven't done it
Roggenbier- I've had a "Roggenweizen" and a "Roggenrauchbier" but nothing this site considers a true roggenbier. I love the rauchbiers that I've had and am really interested in finding one
Braggot- I have Brother Adams Honey Braggot in the cellar
English Pale Mild Ale- I'm pretty sure I had one of these at a brewpub one time or another...it wasn't exciting enough to remember.
I'm not really after trying EVERY style (i.e. I could care less about Euro Strong Lager and Low Alcohol Beer)- but now that I realized I'm so close I might go for it.
I stopped keeping lists for no reason long ago.
I wish the bros would show the average score for each style so we could see how each style is perceived, because some are obvious (DIPA > Kolsch), but some are not.
Maybe what i'm suggesting is a "style score" like ratebeer has.
I think trying every style can be fun, but not neccessary
Sahti I've yet to tic but I'm sure I will without too much effort.
Happoshu is a tricky one, perhaps a good excuse to go to Japan.
I did not bother counting how many styles I have had, but I can say that I would like to try every style that's out there.
it has the styles stat on your profile

And there are 104 total.
even if you don't like pumpkin beers you should still try it just for the sake of saying you've tried it.... but this is coming from a guy who loves pumpkin beer
Are there styles other than IPA, DIPA and Imperial stouts?
94, trying to hit 100. Not gonna be easy.
For many people on this site, there is not.
If I could find a list of styles worth the paper it's written on then I could begin to count.
My favorite style of beer to grapple with like a gladiator does a lion is good beer.
Well, yes, you should. My comment wasn't meant to be serious.
I've tried them all. I've even made up a few new styles along the way.
P.S. "Conquering" the beer styles? My advice: Sheath your sword. Drink more beer.
Just a bit ago I managed to snag bottles of the last 2 styles I needed and drank them. So i'm at 104... maybe something new should come along so I have something else to seek out!
94 styles for me but with an Unblended Lambic in the fridge for #95.
Getting close to all of them...
93 for me. Anyone know where in NYC I can tick Happoshu and Kvass?
What?! Southern Tier Pumking!
All 104... Toughest to find was Happoshu - but I did end up finding it at both a Japanese market and a sushi restaurant in the greater NYC area (Brooklyn for the restaurant and Edgewater, NJ for the Japanese market).
I've had 91 out of... 104? Hmmm... I'm missing almost as many US states as I am styles, seems like. Wonder if I could have one of each missing style form one of each missing state... the mind reels.

I've tried 65 out of 104, though it may be worth noting that 3 of the 104 listed "styles" are, "in the process of being sorted and moved into proper categories," indicating that these categories are temporary dumping grounds and perhaps should not be counted as true styles (fruit/vegetable beer, herbed/spiced beer, and smoked beer).
Trying a beer of each style is not important to me, 'specially because even the recognized styles tend to be pretty nebulous. But if I got within, like, 10, my latent OCD would probably kick in and then I'd buy beers I could care less about just to say I tried all the styles. Looking at the listing now though, I can't spot a style I haven't tried that I'm really motivated to seek out just for the sake of doing so.
All of them!
I've had examples of all four British styles.
'Type' is the more tradition word. And its more accurate in its more open interpretation.
Let's see; Southern Brown Ale, Northern Brown Ale ,Irish Red and Scottish Ale .
No idea about NYC, but in the UK most Russian restaurants have kvass and Russian delis sometimes stock it. Still searching for Happoshu...
I have had all 14 styles. I haven't had some of the ridiculous number of subcategories that BJCP insists on including in their ridiculous list, but I believe I have tried every style there is. Case in point is Happoshu, which is a bottom fermented beer with adjuncts. Why we need to say more than bottom fermented, or bottom fermented with adjuncts, for those beers is beyond me.
And, yes, I know I am in the extreme minority on this.
Minority here.....but yuck! Personally my first pumking was a drain pour...needless to say it was my last.
Agree, but forced it down - still not as bad as Desparados tequila beer.
The substyles are kind of necessary for competitions- for everything else, not so much.
Looks like I'm at 82. Is there an easy way to tell which styles I havent had?
Irish Red isn't really a British style. I meant Southern Brown Ale, Northern Brown Ale, Robust Porter and Scottish Ale.
There's some hot new action in Lapland with a few Imperial dry-firred Sahtis popping up. No Clydesdales, just Reindeer.
Don't be silly, there's also barrel aged IIPA's and RIS's we have tons of variety.
I found the list of styles and I see on my profile that I've had 88 of them but is there somewhere where I can see which ones I have and haven't had without manually going through and checking?
