What does your significant other think about beer/homebrew in general?
Mine can't stand it.

Can't stand beer or just homebrew? Many women don't like bitter, hoppy ales and that's what we tend to make.

[poll needs a Not Applicable, but I'll express my opinion anyway.]

Generally she doesn’t like beer, but I have found a few...Leffe Blond and some fruit beers. I buy those for her as much as I can. Hopefully her beer tastes will grow overtime like it did for wine.

My wife tries all the beers I try. She's down for anything really, although IPA's aren't her bag.

My wife deffinatly knows what she likes and her tastes like all of ours change with time. She can for sure hold her own with the big boys and has been known to drink the newbs under the table just for fun. Its like sport hunting! back in college I was her official ankle holder for 'holy **** watch that 5 foot tall girl go' keg stands.

Sorry should have included it. I don't see a way to modify the poll or I would.

Mine tries at least a taste of everything I make but she prefers light lagers (doh); she's not a big beer drinker anyway, she goes for the hard stuff. I did get her to try Seirra Nevada Pale Ale recently and she said she liked that.

My wife will drink beer. She's sampled most of what I've made. Her preference is to mix her beer with coke. Yup, you read that right. She's German, and apparently that's a pretty common drink over there. She prefers it with a darker beer. We had one called an alt schuss - I'm guessing it was mixed with an alt beer. I'm thinking of brewing an alt for her. Her family also drank a lot of "Radler". This is beer mixed with a lemon (or maybe lemon-lime) soda. IMO, both are drinkable and not horrible, but I'd rather just drink my beer straight up.

I am fortunate in that SWMBO not only enjoys the beer I make, but has very good feedback. She doesn't like wheats (I rejoice) mainly due to the carbonation levels, but she still tries them. She likes hoppier ales than I!
