I've combined 3 different polls with "what would you top ## styles be if yo could only have ## styles".

The problem is that many styles COULD be combined into one.

So - your task if you decide to except it would be to combine styles.

For instance - I have already out Oktoberfest into rotating Seasonal.

but I have 4 or 5 Belgians - combine them into rotating Belgians?? English Ale and English Brown???

The list - I'm not putting the counts in yet. Don't want to sway your opinions.

American Brown Ale
American Wheat
APA

For instance

Hefeweizen - can I group that with American Wheat? or Witbier?

Dry Irish Stout can be group with Stouts? Is there THAT much difference?

For simplicity sake, why don't you just group them according to BJCP categories? We're all homebrewers and pretty familiar with the categories and sub-categories. For example, Milds, Southern English Brown and Northern Brown Ales would be under Category 11 - English Brown Ales. I suppose you can make it even more general and include American Brown ales too and just have the category labeled as "Brown Ales". Use your best judgment with stuff that doesn't necessarily fit style guidelines and group it with other beers its relatively close to.

I would not group German Hefeweizens with American Wheats or Belgian Wits but I would group Dry Stouts in "Stouts" along with Milk stouts, Oatmeal Stout, RIS, etc, etc.
