    Hard to say if I agree with a list, when I haven't had half of the beers. Though I've had 2, 3, 4, 7-1, 14, 15, 16-1, and 23. I'll just put it that I enjoy IPA's with a citrus forward flavor, stouts, porters, reds, and brown ales. Tops in my book that didn't make the list are: Deschutes The Abyss (Barrel aged Imperial Stout), Dirty Wooky (Brewer's Cabinet, local to Reno. Imperial Brown Ale), and the Double IPA from Revision (another local Reno Brew). Guinness if you are in Ireland, or can't find another anything else on the list (bonus that it can be substituted for a meal if the kitchen is closed).

    I can’t stand IPA’s. Way to hoppy for me. Although, I did enjoy the Dogfish Head 90min IPA. But not a single IPA I’ve tried after. Which is weird.

    I do like the brown ales. Belgium beers, wheat beers, and any light beer when I’m in the mood to throw em back.

    I miss living outside of Kalamazoo and Bell's was my local brew. I too am not a fan of IPA which seems to be 75%+ of the market now. I've always loved bock the most with Huber Bock being my all time favorite. Right now though I'm really into sours, specifically gose. Single Speed's Ring Around the Gose is my number one go to right now. Can't get enough.

    I've enjoyed most of what's on the list. Depending on my craving I might adjust the order but I'll go with this. A lot of great brews out there!
