It seems like a lot of my craft beer friends are on some sort of (negative) parabolic curve... They start with lightly flavored beers and then slowly drink higher ABV and more flavorful offerings, but after a certain point they ease up on the big beers and start exploring the subtly flavored beers. I started out like any other beer drinker with the light beers, then moved onto wits, then IPAs, etc. Before I knew it I was onto DIPAs, Barleywines, and Quads. However, now I go for the "old reliables" and the session beers I can have a few of in a row without descending into the depths of drunkville. Of course I still go for the big beers every once and a while, but I usually don't stock my fridge with them. Did anyone else follow this progression? Was it a different shaped curve?
