    My girlfriend will try just about any beer, but is partial to brown ales and sours, counting New Glarus Fat Squirrel as her favorite.

    My wife's two faves are Surly Furious and Allagash White. She's been known to put away a few Alpha Kings, as well. She's pretty awesome.

    My wife is very open to trying anything I'm trying, but tends to be turned off by overly hopped or bitter beers. Her go-to is Stella in the summer, but these days she's into malty ambers and brown ales. That said, she tried a bit of my last bottle of Speedway Stout, and responded with, "Whoa! That is a damned good beer!"

    My wife likes Pete's Wicked Strawberry Blonde and Wagner Valley Summer Sail - keeps her away from my IPAs and Belgians in the beer fridge and kegerator....I will add that she will try just about anything I'm drinking and really liked a black ipa I had yesterday...

    Blue moon regularly. Mother Earth weeping willow wit. And somehow still likes imperial stouts. The only IPA she hasn't made a face at was Pliny.

    The old lady loves ruination, sculpin, yellow snow and seasonal fruit beers. She will try any beer but she is a huge hophead.

    Lately my lady's been sipping on Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout. IDK if it's her favorite, though.

    I asked my wife this questions and after a 30 minute conversation she wasn't able to give an answer she was happy with. She did mention Russian River Beatification, Allagash Matina Rosa, Cerise, Marshal Wharf Oyster Stout and Cigar Citys Cedar Marshal Zhukov's.

    My girlfriend's favorite beer of all-time is Magic Hat Lucky Kat IPA, which is weird, but I respect it. Since it's gone now, she goes 'gaga' over Duchesse de Bourgogne, Ommegang Zuur, Dogfish Head Aprihop, Green Flash Hop Head Red, and... wait for it... MILLER LITE!! I love her! She's the maple syrup to my pancakes! Cheers, BA!

    You've heard about FS being cut? Better stock up to keep her happy as they will all be off the shelves and buried soon.

    New Belgium's Tart Lychee has been my fiance's favorite so far. She normally tries a sip of anything except IPA's that I crack open, but rarely drinks except for dinner or vacation and prefers wine when she does. Going to California wine country for the wedding in May though, so maybe I will try to sneak some beer into her glass instead of wine...

    My wife's tastes are remarkably similar to mine. She recently tried TBK's White Rajah and it has become her favorite.

    Dogfish Head Midas Touch has to be my fiance's favorite, which is fine as it leaves the stouts for myself.
