    Tough question. Would probably want to go with a "lighter" but flavorful IPA to get me through all seasons (I'd have a tough time with Breakfast Stout in July & August, for instance, and conversely wouldn't want something too light for those Northeast winters). Maybe Maine's Lunch or Bell's Two-Hearted.

    Fascinating query...have to be a strong, but flavorful pale ale. If I'm going to have 1 or maybe a few needs to be versatile.
    Half Acre Daisy Cutter
    3 Floyds Zombie Dust
    etc.

    I'm right there with you.....I was going to say Breakfast Stout but when it's 95 degrees outside I might want something lighter. I'm actually thinking that I might go with Celebration, Green Flash West Coast IPA, or Flower Power.

    ... maybe Sun King Osiris Pale. Tons of flavor. 5.6% = definitely sessionable.

    And I like her even more cause she plays hard to get (SK is Indiana-only).

    I am a beer polygamist. My first love in beer was St Bernardus; however, then I discovered Bells Expedition Stout. The short answer is i put the Ger in beer Swinger. No one beer can satisfy me.
