My wife used to say she hated beer. Turns out she hates BMC and overly hopped beers, but loves wheats and stouts. I just bottled a Wit and a Coffee Stout for her so she can have some good beers after our son is born.

My mother-in-law ONLY orders Stella Artois if she has to have a beer. It's that or nothing, and I realized she does it because she equates it with something classier than BMC. She's actually kind of a wine connoisseur with a taste for slightly sour wines, so I gave her a Rodenbach Grand Cru and it was great to see her face light up. I also got her ex-husband hooked with a Pretty Things Jack d'Or and a Gavroche. Slowly turning that entire family...

My boss (who's also a friend) is a Wyoming redneck who usually likes nothing better than lots of cheap beer. Then i got him drinking some Deschutes Black Butte Porter, and a few weeks ago he shows up at my house with three different bombers from Heretic to share. He mostly bought them for the funny names (Evil Twin, anyone?) but he actually likes craft brews now. Success!

Wow a Grand Cru is what she had a taste for.. lol. It's almost weird what you find people start to like. I guess I project my own tastes on others too much.

My good friend is a huge american macro lager line of guy and I've been dampling him on different craft beers over the years in search of one he like. After sampling on all kinds of amazing IPAs, stouts, porter, and a lot of the other rreally popular styles he ended up falling in love with belgian tripel. Corsendonk blonde and cambridge tripel threat being some oc his favorites.

My mom loves imperial stouts, especial the Brooklyn black chocolate.

I live in a country where craft beer and homebrewers are not very popular, people don´t even have the smallest clue about beer... anything that differs from macro lagers its unknown. I have turn dozens of friends into craft beer and homebrewed beers. The person that amaze me the most was my wife´s grandmother, I gave her my DIPA and just the look on her face while she was trying it was priceless, I never tougth that she liked that, now I got to send her a few bottles time to time, she still haves macro lagers, but if there is something different she will put the macro lager aside and have a real beer... that old lady makes me happy...
