I think many home brewers start from a very limited palette and experience.

I always see a lot of posts like "I enjoy aside variety of beers except 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8"

Some things are an acquired taste... Or take getting used to. And I think a good deal of education is needed before you can reasonably start knocking off entire countries like Belgium. Haha.

Well,for me it's the sour funk that does things to my stomach.

Belgians like some say I had to get into but now a good Belgian beer...yes please.

Hefe's are kinda the same way but I just can't quite get over the completely unfiltered part. I'll drink one and might like it but it's 50/50.

Sour's on the other hand. It's more rare if I can take another drink. I can appreciate the work that goes into them and that they're a style. But I just don't like sour food, drink, candy...whatever. With that said I have had a very good sour beer or two.

Some people like blondes and some like brunettes.

I just got back from RRBC yesterday and picked up a couple bottles of their sours. They are amazing.

And also a growler of Pliny the Elder.

I started home brewing (granted it was less than a year ago) after I started working at a winery, because steps at the winery I found related to brewing. I was enjoy craft beers and microbrews back in high school (over the normal Keystone and Light Lagers that most of the underage dredge enjoyed.

So that's where I try to related everything I make, by something I've tasted. Unfortunately the area I live in (Walla Walla Valley) does not have a single descent selection of beer. We have a decent brew store, a few good ale houses, and breweries that are being built along with our 72 wineries.

But I know that after I started to enjoy IPAs Porters and Stouts I just cannot enjoy many Belgium or Hefe's. Which is mainly what got me started with drinking craft beers, however I do have some exceptions however.
