My favorite beer style is an IPA, so that's what I'd recommend.

If she has a favorite beer style, that's what you should make. Some women like darker, but less hoppy beers, like stout with the roasted coffee-ness. Some like darker beers, but not roasty- like Newcastle. Some like light and non-hoppy beers like a blonde ale. Some like wheats, like hefeweizens. Others like hops, so enjoy APAs and IPAs, but I'd hazard a guess that most of them do not.

SWMBO Slayer!

But Yooper's right. It's not like you can say "Hey! You have a uterus! You must like *insert beer style here*!"

What kind of beer does the ladyfriend already like?

My girlfriend loves Imperial Stouts and Imperial IPAs about as much I do.

why are you having us decide... why not have her go to the package store and do some style research and tell you what she likes... THEN brew that!

the way I got my GF involved was to let her pick the recipe...she chose a Blackberry cream ale.....just a Brewers Best box kit with 3\4ths bottle of blackberry syrup added before bottling....I was impressed...made a great beer, and she loves it too, to keep her interested I brew a few batches then let her pick out something fruity\light

The only thing my wife doesnt care for is Weizen beers brewed with German yeasts.
American Wheats, she is fine with but the clovey/banana always gets me a MEH look

Oh, as long as there is an umbrella in there she is good to go too........................
