Personally, I'm not going to FORCE myself to like anything. (The last time I did that it was beer, just so I could play beer pong in college.)

However, tastes change. I used to hate onions. Now I love them. I didn't eat them until they were better, I just sampled them or didn't refuse to eat them at a restaurant or at a friend's house and eventually I got to like them.

Do you absolutely avoid anything containing any coconut? I used to until I stumbled across the Girl Scout cookies with toasted coconut. Don't come between me and them...

German Beers, Wheat beers, Bitter beers... heck even grapefruit can take some getting used to.

I am just sayin... I do find that a lot of the hoppy beers can be annoying to drink since I am spoiled by the clean light beers. Perhaps this is why a lot of homebrewers attempt the sweet amber ales so often?

Different tastes are not less mature tastes.
It's sort of an elitist thing to assume that if people don't like what you think they should like, it's because there is something wrong with them.

I don't drink the big selling beers, but that doesn't mean my tastes are more correct.

This. I don't understand the elitist opinion that only their opinion is correct. You are only a true ________ fan if you like ____________ doesn't make sense. Eat, drink, watch, and play what YOU like. Now I recommend you try other things and I also suggest people try something a couple times before coming to a final conclusion but why do something you don't enjoy.

Like all above, drink/brew what you like. I'm a hop head. I have a couple of friends who are big time brewer's (one brewing for Boulevard) and on top of being hop heads, they all almost unanimously love Belgians, stouts, and big beers including the latter. I just can't get behind Belgians and I've kind of tried, but I'm not gonna force it. Now I will say I recently had Sputnik (R.I.C.O. stout) from Austin Beerworks. Super tasty, but still not a stout guy.

Maybe you should stroll around town and hand out free homebrew to people. Educate the masses and free their palates from slavery. The responsibility lies with you, Neo, I mean ryno. Now go......the oracle is waiting.
