Gotta Girlie Beer Recipe?
 
Only one girl in my life drinks beer all the others are wine drinkers. Was thinking about brewing a batch of one of those chocolate stouts just for the femine palate, but that may a bit "too thick". Any desert beers?

A lot of the girls I know really enjoyed this Blonde Ale recipe, and many of the more girlie-men I know liked this US Wheat Ale recipe quite a bit. Cheers

Instead of trying to brew something they are supposed to like; why not challange their perception of beer? There's so much out there, and most probably only had lagers.

Do a smoked, malty session beer. Not an overly peat beer, of course.

I had a lot of good luck getting girls to drink a tart Wheat beer made of a simple American-style Wheat beer racked to secondary on top of a single can of Apricot puree.

Most of the girls I know that didn't like beer at one point started drinking stouts or porters. I find that if you do a chocolatey stout or a coffee stout... maybe both... you will find many enjoy it. Not just girls.

Cream of 3 Crops seems to be a winner for a wide variety of beer drinkers.

there are dudes that like girly beers, too!

just like there are chicks that rock hardcore in-your-face brews and wipe their mouth with the back of their hand ;)

Agreed. Gender has nothing to do with taste for beer. All my lady friends are into craft brews and one of my former girlfriends is more of a hophead than I am!
