    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.

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

    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.:wink:
