Default You're opening your own brew pub.......

and you get to have 6 flagship beers. What 6 styles would you choose to brew all the time for your brewery?

Just curious what folks would go with.

i think 6 flagship beers is a few too many, but:

porter, stout, wheat, ipa, esb, golden ale

i'd stick with ales if i were just starting out, then invest in lagering tanks as it grows.

A pale ale, a red, an IPA, a porter, a dark IPA (Cascadian for you die-hards) and a saison... No wheat beers in my bar!

A pale American wheat,
an ordinary bitter,
a west coast IPA,
an Oktoberfest,
a robust porter, and a
Belgian farmhouse.

I would love to have a rotating tap though. I would sacrifice one of the flagships to have a wildcard.

blond, red ale, pale ale, wheat, IPA and stout if I have to pick 6 styles. I think you'd have something for just about everyone in those six. Obviously I'm basing these choices on the fact that I want a successful business and not which styles I like most.
