Default Which 4 types of beer

If you were to walk into a brewpub, which 4 types of beer would you most like to see on tap? I don't mean brand, i mean, which style of brew would most intrigue you to sit down at the bar and have a sampler.

That's a really tough question if you're looking for a general idea of what to serve. If I was picking for myself, it would be

1. stout
2. ipa
3. barleywine
4. sour/belgian

If I was choosing something based upon what a majority of the public would enjoy

1. Pale, engligh or american
2. Wheat
3. IPA
4. Stout

I also prefer beers to be big and crazy.

Default 4 Beers

1. Oatmeal Stout

2. Wiezen/Weissbier/Wit

3. Altbier

4. English Brown/Mild/Bitters

Probably like to have some seasonal transitions like: a Saisson or Session ale in the summer, a 90 Shilling Ale or Imperial Stout in late fall/early winter, some kind of spicy fest beer for the holidays, and a good cider for those times when you want something lighter flavored and refreshing.
Just my opinion, but these are what I like to drink. If, you are adding food to the fare bill, we can go to the moon with other choices.

If they're making a great IPA, they're working well in the middle of what's the most popular (hence easiest to judge) craft style at the moment.

If they're making decent lagers, they've got great sanitation, temp control, clarity, and are doing more than the typical kolsch/blonde ale effort to appeal to a broad range of drinkers, and I'm really tired of breweries ignoring what's basically half of the world's beer spectrum.

If they're making decent sours, they're putting serious time into the process.

And I just love brett.

1. IPA
2. Sour brown cherry ale
3. Brett Saison or brett belgian pale
4. Munich Helles or pilsener

I would list Belgian Dubble or Belgian Strong, but those are usually hit or miss unfortunately, as they are my favorite styles.

1. Belgian Blonde
2. IPA / IIPA
3. Imperial Stout (rich)
4. Hefeweizen (for my wife)
