beer taps

Beer I’d like to try and beer I’ve tried. I liked, were just ok, I didn’t like. Also see wine, chocolate, and other lists.

Naturally, this isn’t comprehensive – I’ve tried others that aren’t listed here – and it’s biased toward my taste. If I mark a beer , I may still think it’s good overall, but just doesn’t match my own personal taste, and vice versa. I tend to prefer IPAs and darker beers like stouts and porters. I don’t mind lighter ales and lagers, but some, like lambics, I’m not a fan of.
