    If you had a magic wand and could magically make one beer style just as popular as ipas (let's lump all heavily hop focused pale beers in this category for the sake of sanity) which would it be?

    None, let it ride.. Thinking of another style popularized to the point of IPA turns me off.

    I like all different kinds of beers (except light :laughing:) but I would be very happy seeing an increase in Imperial Stouts.

    Sticke Altbier.

    I have a homebrewed batch lagering right now but it would be great to be able commercial versions when I (quickly) exhaust this batch.

    Cheers!

    P.S. It appears that Chuckanut Brewery produces one but they don't distribute to my area: https://chuckanutbrewery.com/bier/sticke-secret-alt/

    Munich Helles or Dunkel.

    Maibock wouldn't be a bad thing. :wink:

    For the most part I am with @DavyJonesXXX
    However if pressed to pick something else, it would be BA Imperial Stouts or BA BarleyWines

    I have 4 Pilsners in my stash right now. Are they difficult to find in Connecticut?

    Your wish is granted!

    But seriously, how would that change shelves from how they look today?

    Where the hell do you live? There's almost as many ImpStouts around here as there are murkbombs.

    As is usually the case with Cnut, their Sticke is excellent.

    It's funny, there are more Pilsners in the summer, fewer in the winter. I know this well because besides my love of them, its pretty much all my wife ever wants me to buy for her year-round.
    Even in the summer, I would say that most stores IPA/Pilsner ratio is about 45:1.
