Yup. Ballast Point recently released a lager. Forgot the name though

If you are ever around Itasca, IL, Church Street Brewery does a really nice Helles that they always have in their tap room. They have an IPA as well, but the rest of their beers, usually 5 or 6 on tap, are more of the traditional styles.

For the same reason people want super hot buffalo wings instead of different flavors of basic BBQ wings.

Bigger and more tongue numbing is trendy in our foods and beers. 'Merica!
