My girl is all Bud Light, but I've gotten her to try all my homebrews. She doesn't like any of them, but the raspberry one and the peanut butter brown were less offensive to here than the others.

My wife taste tests all my brews and gives me feeback on them. She doesn't at all any more however. Just a sip to see if she likes the taste.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

My lady is a "Lite" fan, but she will try anything I drink, as long as I go first. She says some aren't to bad, but she's all over the place. Sometime she likes an IPA, sometimes it's a Bock. There is no consistency. It's all good though, I like a challenge. I'll find her something to take the place of that corn water if it's the last thing I do!

Mine doesn't really like beer in general, but she can be convinced to try a porter or stout. She has tried a cream ale and liked it, and she likes Chimay blue.

My wife hates everything about beer. She'll sample a little here and there, but is usually followed by a nasty beer face and a complaint about how nasty it is. I just keep telling her to keep sampling until she finds one she likes, hoping she'll eventually aquire a taste for beer

The good thing about my situation is that she supports my hobby and lets me buy pretty much what I want.

Amen to that. Mines the same, though she does think it's funny that I'll spend so much time and effort making beer, when I could just go out and buy it.

My wife is not a big beer drinker, but she has good taste when she does drink beer: she hates BMC, likes big hoppy PAs (but not over-the-top IPAs) and so on. She seems to like Hefes and wits, too.

I made a batch of mixed berry mild for her--she claims that she really liked it, but she didn't drink much of it, and I don't really care for it either. I use iot for cooking sometimes.

Primary: none
Bottle conditioning: Robust Porter
Drinking: Saison Dupont clone, tripel
Coming soon: Columbus APA, Rich Red ale

Trace is a beer snob and my brewing partner

I ALMOST voted for I need permission to use her equipment, since it was her birthday present, but that wouldn't be true.
