    If you had to choose a certain beer from each style for the rest of the year from each style, as in, if you want an IPA, it will be this exact beer, which would it be? Stouts, IPAs, Barleywine's can be imperial/ normal/ barrel aged. doesnt matter, must choose one.

    IPA: Surly Furious (MBC Lunch would be fine too. I have a Hill Farmstead Susan in the refrigerator but I haven't tasted it yet).
    STOUT Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout with at least a year of aging
    BARLEYWINE/STRONG ALE: not my favorite styles, maybe Fuller's 1845
    PALE ALE: Victory Headwaters (Hill Farmstead Edward is amazing but the huge hop character makes it less versatile with food)
    HEFEWEIZEN: Weihenstephaner
    DUBBEL: St Bernardus, Rochefort or Westmalle (no strong preference)
    SAISON: De Glazen Toren Saison D'Erpe-Mere or Saison Dupont
    PUMPKIN: no thanks
    WILD/SOUR: this covers too much turf maybe Cuvee des Jacobins or Rodenbach
    SESSION/LAGER/LOW ABV: again covers too much but damn few decent choices in the USA, maybe De La Senne Taras Boulba @ 4.5% ABV or Surly Bitter Brewer @ 4%. It is sad that good English cask Bitter is rarely available in the U.S. and that American breweries mostly can't or won't make anything decent <5% ABV.

    Great call on the Resurgam! We (my tasting group) just did a side-by-side of the first and last batch and this beer has come so far! It's now right near the top of the American Wild heap.

    I'm thinking that is the point of the question - a favorite might not be one that you (or anybody else) scored highly. I think drinkability is much more of a factor when it comes to a personal favorite. Probably a bunch of other factors too. I think it is more the every day drinker thing versus the (so called) best or highest rated.

    Never before have I felt like such a newbie. Most of the styles here I was struggling with which makes me question my adventurousness. Oh well, this calls for a shopping trip...
