    When I bring home Alpine Nelson or NB La Terrior it's a pantie droppin' moment.

    My wife doesn't drink much beer (despite being born and raised in Chico, hime of SNBC) but she loved Abyss when I opened my first bottle. She also Narwhal and Old Rasputin, so I guess she's a stout chick.

    Chimay Grande Reserve. Being my all time favorite, I spent years trying to get her to even take a sip without making a face. She absolutely hated it. Be careful what you wish for. I haven't had a 750ml to myself since the light switch went on a few years ago. ;(

    IPAs for days. 2 Hearted tops the list. We moved to Atlanta before distribution and it was a big deal when Bells started popping up in stores

    My wife mostly drinks wines and mixed drinks. She'll drink a leinies Berry Weiss occasionally, but "angry orchard" cider is typically the closest to beer she'll get. Oddly enough, she didn't mind a victory v12 which I did not care for.

    She likes lots of stuff, but not really anything too strong. She doesn't care for IPA's really, but will drink em. Honestly she tries a lot with me but she likes her beer with more malt than hop.

    My wife doesn't drink at all. We both had our fair share of crappy vodka or a few years and she decided it was better to cut it out completely. She does love her "no-mosa's" though! Sparkling grape mixed with some oj.... Saves us money and keeps my beer safe haha.

    Luckily, she hates beer. I don't have to worry about bottle disappearing from my cellar.

    She loves brown ales, and Peak Organic specifically. No sweat buying $9 6-packs to get into her good graces.

    My cousin was helping me today at work, and mentioned how he and his wife were headed to RR next week for some Pliny because "it's her favorite".. I'm yet to meet in person a lady like that.

    My wife is a stout fan which suits me just fine. Her favorites are Southern Tier Choklat and Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate.

    She likes Stouts, Porters and Scotch ales just like me. In fact we even like the same macros with PBR and Berryweiss. Her favorite is Sam Smith Oatmeal stout.

    Stouts, especially barrel aged ones. Event Horizon is her absolute favorite beer. She also enjoys most non-sour Belgians.

    TAPS Irish Red earns me megapoints with the wife. Taps is a restaurant/brewery in Brea, Calif. Their Remy BA Imp Stout is Xcellent too. As a standby, I need to have Alaskan Amber handy for her.;)
