    Ha, I love beer, particularly good craft beer of all styles... this is definitely not one I would buy.... lol. Though I'll try pretty much anything once.

    Duclaw also does the PB Porter I mentioned before (Sweet Baby Jesus). Their restaurants were hit or miss for me back east, but I always loved their beer. Glitter & breakfast cereal is a bridge too far however.

    My latest odd-ish one was a pink guava/mango sour that is off the chain. Love these guys and weird beer generally.

    Yah, weird beer is great for when you're sitting at the bar staring at 100+ taps with a group of friends. Always go for the oddest thing for at least one in a flight.

    I love sours/geuze/saison, etc., and I'm always the one getting something "interesting". Sometimes it ain't pretty, sometimes it is da bomb.

    Sour beer is gross, if I wanted wine I'd get wine. Well, I'm not even drinking these days, but if LaCroix put edible glitter in I'd try it.

    I’m constantly amazed at the seemingly endless varieties of beers available.
    I still only really like a couple of brands/types.

    I’ve gotten into sours a little bit over the years. In every case with sours, I 1000% prefer them on tap. But there are a few out there that are really intriguing and downright tasty.

    I quit drinking in 1998...but even in my tee-totaling state, this disturbs me:

    Best Maid are awesome locally-made pickles. I don’t know how combining that with beer would taste good.

    Makes me glad I’m sober.

    I've never seen weird beer in cans in Europe, the smaller brewers always use bottles.

    Oude Geuze and Krieks are my favourites.

    I like most beer. I do not like sour beers - yech! A friend had a party and bought a few half kegs of craft beer. One was a sour. He had most of that keg left at the end of the party.

    Small rant - I love IPAs. They are my favorite. But for crying out loud can we keep some other styles in the stores too? For craft beers there are usually 100 IPAs to every ale or porter.

    I think it's trending everywhere. Guitars, beers, spirits, baking, cuisine.. Craft, boutique, small batch, artisan.

    I love beer, but I can't honestly say I love beer of all types. Berliner weiss, gose, and sours all just have an underlying taste that my palate cannot abide.

    This x100. You can get IPAs from session to mondo-ABV anywhere, I've had 'em all and have been chasing the dragon since my first taste of Ruination in the early 00s, maybe a half dozen half topped that one for me and they're all variations on a narrow theme. The weird stuff is where it's at.
