I'm not a fan of IPAs, I've never brewed one and I can't imagine I'd ever brew one.
So I wanted to ask everyone else if there's a style or styles that you'll never brew?

Hefes, too much wheat in a beer makes me gag.

at one point I hated stouts, but big giant stouts are some of my favorites now, same with IPA's - which I once could not stand because of the bitterness so take these with a grain of salt...

Gose, rauchbier, and american light lager.

If i want a lawnmower beer I will brew a kolsch

IPA

I said I would never brew a pale ale but I am going to do a SN pale ale clone next. I love that beer.

Probably a sour. Only cause I have never had one but if I did and liked it I might reconsider.

I'd have to say a sour as well. I'd hate to get brett all on my equipment and have to toss the plastics and rubber. I would expect the amount to be small, but I'd be afraid that I just couldn't trust them anymore. I had a bad experience when I put a root beer on tap. I had to sawp out all the lines and gaskets. I couldn't find a replacement for one of the gaskets in my perlick faucet, so I cleaned it as well as I could. nope... still tasted root beer on the first pour of the next beer through that tap.

Any lager ...at least until I can convince SWMBO that we need a refrigerator in the basement just for my beer making endeavors (which will happen eventually).

Probably a Belgian style ale. I like them and appreciate them, but not enough to brew one.
