My wife always helps me to drink mine. She typically helps me on bottling day as well. Now I've switched to 10 gallon batches because 5 do not stay in the house long enough. I typically like all beers but have my favs like pals, IPAs, stouts. She is more into Irish reds, honey browns, wheats. I am not a huge fan of wheats. I would say the irish red usually goes real fast because we both like them.

Mine will taste everything I make, but in generally doesn't care much for alcohol, and only rarely drinks fruity stuff when the girls are together. She did say that the Blonde was not too bad.

If they made beer that tasted like Mountain Dew, then she'd have it made.

So now I've commissioned her to select what we brew next. It currently looks like it might be a Chocolate-Vanilla Hobgoblin.
Lucky bastage.

My wife doesn't like anything that much.

Ditto, she's as big of a hop head as I am.. Very lucky. Now if I could only get her into stouts and porters...

My wife is very supportive. She doesn't get into the science of brewing much but loves to help on brew day and bottling. She doesn't like hoppy beers therefore I always keep a brown or amber on tap. She loves smoked beers and bourbon barrel vanilla stout is a new favorite to my surprise! I love this woman! She is mostly a wine drinker but just recently told me she wanted to start drinking beer instead of wine mainly but if she did I wouldhave to make sure never to run out of beer in the pipeline!!!

When I met my wife, she only ate chicken fingers, pizza and mixed drinks or miller lite when we were out. Now she's into calorie laden hop bombs, and expensive sushi.

Careful!

My wife doesn't like the brewing and could really care less about the beer as she absolutely loves her expensive vodka but needless to say when friends are over she has no problem passing out my beer and occasionally she'll let me know she tried something and actually liked it!

My wife knows a good amount about beer because she worked at a beer bar (which prided itself for having hundred beers) during college. So she actually knows that she:
1. Likes fruit beer (lambic included)
2. Likes dark beer like stout and porter
3. 100% does not like wheat beer
4. Doesn't really like any other beers

I have yet to make a beer she likes but I'm only learning; not in too great a hurry.
