    Once again the list is heavily tilted toward high ABV/IBU beers. Drinkable session type beers lose out again. I wonder what would happen if they also accounted for the age of the respondent.

    I'd be perfectly content with a case of SN Torpedo and a couple oatmeal stouts. Nothing against the big bottles, but it's often too expensive for me, or I don't want 750ml in one sitting.
    Two ciders please, I'm thirsty!

    On deck: Soon Cider
    Fermenting: None
    bottled: Old and dusty something rathers
    Secondary: None
    Kegged: Carbonated Water (enjoying home made soda syrups)

    Interesting observation and thought Corky. I wonder if the poor representation of sessions beers is due to lack of production in great numbers. It seems to me that many breweries seem to find the brewing of big beers better for the bottom line.

    There are lots of great beers in the 4.5-6% ABV range, in fact most commercial beers fall in that range. Think Sierra Nevada, Deschutes, Sam Adams, most of their beers are moderate alcohol. But's the bigger, more extreme beers that get the attention, especially with the younger crowd.
