Hehe... I need to keep my wife involved to a certain degree or she will invariably begin to scorn the entire hobby, thus removing any joy that may have otherwise been involved.....

So far she has been very supportive of the hobby of brewing.. and a bit concerned about the drinking the fruits of my labors part..... (my gracious 2 beers in one day! you are turning into a drunk)

not that this will stop me of course!!! I submit too often... this time I will win!

yeah!............................................. .. coming dear.......

sorry guys...gotta go....

Has she ever tried a Belgian beer like Wittekerk or Hoegarden? My girlfriend really enjoys those and there are plenty of Hoegarden clones out there. Unfortunatly no wittekerke clones...

I don't think she has tried a lot of different styles... she has had plenty BMC's and decided she doesn't like beers.... (she doesn't like Boston Lager or ESB either.. I had her try those) so she doesn't bother to experiment with different beers.... And to be honest, my own beer experience is fairly limited so I don't know what to recommend to her..... thus the "take pity on my poor ignorant soul" thread that I've started here!

Im telling you my girlfreind drank bud light and didn't like any other beers. But I started bringing her to beer fests which really helped her figure out what she liked. She really enjoyed a Belgian beer fest because of the hoegarden and wittekerke but also the rasberry framboise that were there. But the two Belgian beers that I mentioned are lighter and crisp with little to no bitterness.

Go to a place that has a good beer selection and pick some up. Or find a beer fest because I am sure you both would learn a lot from one of those... just try to remember it all

Sounds like a plan MgMt! I've been leaning towards belgians for awhile now and have been anxious to make one.... I'll have to stop at the beer shoppe on the way to work tonight and find a nice one for her to try!

Buy her a Lindemans Framboise. There, now she knows there's a "beer" she likes.

Next get her a Belgian wit or hefeweizen with a lemon.

Well the Framboise is to me a desert beer. It's pretty sweet and fruity but yet it's still a beer. So maybe that will open her eyes to the entire spectrum of beers. I hear you can make some pretty good syrup for waffles with it too
