    What beer would you choose if you could only drink one for an entire year? BTW it can be any beer your heart desires.

    It's gotta be something flavorful, but not over-the-top heavy. Something good in all types of weather. And something that's not too easily attainable. Alpine Nelson.

    Do you mean a single beer or an unlimited amount of a particular beer.

    Anyone else ever think it's weird that from time to time someone posts about a hypothetical situation in which you can only drink one specific beer?
    Think of all the people that drink (insert BMC brand) beer and stick to it like die-hard sports fans stick to their one team.
    Unfortunately, my palate/mind changes way too often, I can't narrow it down to only one. I suppose I can give you a style at least: Saison.

    Well since i could still drink wine i guess it wouldn't make any sense to pick a sour. Also i could Still drink cider in place of lighter more summery beers. Oskar blues Imperial stout?

    Also, since this is hypothetical and most of us don't stick to just 1 beer or style in a session,much less a year, I would list Founders Harvest Ale in a shameless attempt to magically make it a year round offering. Sorry if I got greedy and overstepped boundaries.
