Breweries seem to have followings who either like or don't like their products. For instance, I greatly enjoy Three Floyds, Dogfish Head, Founders and Flying Dog. I don't particularly appreciate the beers produced by New Belgium or Magic Hat. And, IMHO, the world is plenty big enough for these differences in taste.
I totally agree. Although, I don't know anyone who likes Magic Hat. haha. Founders is pretty damn great. I wish we could get more of that out here.

I have had mixd experiences with 3f some good and some bad, and I have visited alot of brewpubs. I have to say that nothing beats the beer at the brewpub. The food and service so so.

I loves some Alpha King as well.

I was also in Chicago during the holiday - I hit up Piece and Goose Island - both excellent. Stopped by and scored some bulk malt at MidCountry on my way out of town. A great vacation if I say so myself!

I've only had 2 of the Magic Hat brews, the #9 and the Lucky Kat IPA. I'm not crazy about the #9, but a lot of my girl friends like it a lot. I REALLY like the Lucky Kat though. I just polished off the last of a 6 pack tonight. It's GREAT with some pizza IMO.

Three Floyds makes nice beers. I have to add that I was not that impressed with the staff at the brewpub.

Alpha Klaus is a nice xmas porter!!!

No mention of Dreadnaught yet? My favorite IIPA and I've been trying a lot lately.

3F's makes good beer but some can be a bit kitschy. Seriously? An overhopped wheat? Good to try, not to drink all the time. Make me a stellar Hefe!

That ESB sounds great, and I'd love to try the dark lord. I doubt it will touch Peche Mortal though.

I did have their fresh hop beer, gumballhead, and alpha king, and I thought those were nice. I also had a fresh bottle off Alpha Klaus that was good, but didn't blow me away. My take is that they're pretty good, but their following is a bit much.
I would love to know what RIS is better than Dark Lord. I was cautious when I was going to taste it, figuring it was over hyped, but damn, that is the best beer I have ever had so far. I had the 2009 bottle in August. Amazing. Pretty much the complete opposite of your description.

Gumballhead on tap, mmmm. I've had most of their beers bottled, all of them have been awesome.

Yeah, I've never experienced those flavors from Dark Lord, and I've had 3 bottles over the years. Always think it's overcarbed for the style, though - that's my main gripe.
