As other have stated, I too like hoppy ales. IPAs, IIPAs and hoppier APAs (such as Hopalicious). Recently I've been sampling some session IPAs, which are fully hopped, but lower in AVB. The only one I like (so far) is Founders All Day IPA. The rest were only so so.

During warm summer days (and nights) I gravitate towards Czech pilsners. I don't like wheat beers.

If you haven't tried it, Central Waters brews a solid one.

Saisons
Fruit Beers (including lambics)
Barrel Aged Stouts
Bocks

This was hard for me because it does change seasonally. I don't like stouts once the weather gets warmer but I love them during the winter. Bocks are for spring, Wits for summer, and Octoberfest in the fall. I get cravings for hops and mostly drink APAs since I don't like really bitter beers.

My 4 fave styles are
IPA's
Pilsners
Stouts
& Fruit Beers

I know alot of people hate on the fruit beers, but when it's hot out it's pretty damn hard to beat a Weekend @ Louie's or a Berry Weiss.

Ditto. Ale Asylum has been fooling around for a while with a session ale. It was on the Asylum Ltd tap for a while, but is now up there in lights as Demento, which should indicate that it will become part of the regular rotation. It's really quite good.

Another from the Asylum Ltd line that now has its own sign up on the wall is Pantheon, an Imperial Brown Ale. I liked it a whole lot more than I thought I would.

Dark and bitter for me. The darker and more bitter, the better.

Stouts and porters and doppelbock. Guinness extra stout, is the one non-German beer I'll drink regularly. Tar-like, taste is great and it'll seal the cracks in your driveway too.

Dark lager

Everything else German, St. Pauli, Beck, Spaten, Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest.....the list is long and reflects living in Munich for a few years. Can't list all the styles in any particular order, becaue I like most of them-- but I tend to avoid Weissbier except when in a rare mood. I refuse to drink Löwenbräu because it's embarassing how Americans pronounce it. It isn't "Low when brow" people. It is "loo ven broy."

Who are the "Low when brow" people'? Are they indigenous to North America?

Fuck that, this is 'Merica and I'll pronounce it how I want. Plus, I wouldn't drink it because it's not that good.

The Founders All-Day is pretty fantastic stuff. I had several Lagunita's in CA in January and then they started showing up pretty much everywhere here. My new favorite. Takes a lot to get me away from the beer made withing an hour from my house but Lagunita's Sucks, Little Sumpin Sumpin, Maximus, and Brown Shugga are all some of my new favorite's. Also drinking a lot of Phatty Boombalatty.

Wouldn't disagree with you on either point. It isn't that good, and yes, in 'Merica you have the right to be embarassingly incorrect in your pronounciation. Might as well just call it "Low Brow"

For many years, the Löwenbräu sold in the U.S. was made by Miller in Milwaukee.

While not very good, it was the best beer brewed by Miller.

Also one of my favorites. The westside Woodman's Liquor has it infrequently. Do you know a reliable source?

Let's edit out that apostrophe, since we can.

Sucks is a late fall/early winter seasonal.
