I'm wondering what are some beer styles you don't find in stores very often? I want to try brewing something that is hard to find or uniquely different. Any thoughts on this?

A Flanders Red fits the bill nicely. Sours in general are not very common.

Brewing with odd spices / herbs also. Search "panepot" in this forum.

A Belgian IIPA. A brew that has a solid Belgian malt backbone and yeast with loads of American Hops. Ommegang BPA is the only commercial one I have found and while it is good I am thinking bigger and hoppier. I did try to clone the Ommegang and it was good but I am still looking for that recipe.

Funny, we're all thinking Belgian. I have a Flanders Brown going right now, and I was going to suggest trying Ommegang's Rare Vos...very good beer that you don't typically find everyday.

Heather ale maybe? Had a fraoch the other night. Very different style ale. And a welcoming change if I dare say it your hopped out.
Had it after a nogne o- #500 and the mikkeler -Texas ranger so my mouth had just been overloaded with flavor.
Very smooth style ale very easy drinking. Think there's only one commercial beer of this style available so definitely something you won't find in your local stores often.

had that at the brewery and I liked it, I think i would like the Abey Ale done with a little more hops, i think it has a better base.
