My beer snob husband, Aaron, (Argo0) introduced me to the joys of good beer. Now we try to go to tastings (formal and informal) whenever we can, we seem to make beer a focus of our travel, and we host an annual holiday beer tasting. I love hoppy beer, so I'm partial to West coast (US) breweries, and a super-hoppy harvest ale will get me every time. Lately, however, I've been really happy to have a Belgian strong or bier de garde in my hand. I guess my palate is getting more sophisticated! How 'bout that!
