Not sure which beer to choose? We've created a simple guide for you, highlighting the different types and styles of beers to help you select the best beer for you!
Types of Beers:
Ales: Ales are fermented with ale yeast that sits on top during the 4-8 day fermentation process at 68-75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lagers: Lagers are fermented with bottom fermenting yeast for 3-15 weeks at 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Styles of Beers:
Pilsner: Clean and simple, pilsners are pale lagers with strong hops, softer malt, are fragrent, and have pleasurably bitter flavors.
Wheat: Light in flavor, these ales have a mix of barley and wheat grain and low to nonexistant hops. They are usually cloudy in appearance and have a strong yeast flavor.
Brown Ale: Brown ales have a higher level of malt. The flavors range from sweet to slightly hoppy, to earthy and malty. Brown ales are made from 100% brown malt which is how they get their dark amber color.
Pale Ale: Made from gently roasted barley and pale malt, pale ales have a strong malty flavor.
India Pale Ale (IPA): IPA's are typical pale ales with more hops. They have a strong hoppy flavor and a slightly bitter taste.
Double IPA's/Imperial IPA's: Usually have 2 or 3 times the hops than a normal IPA. In order to balance the taste, more malt is added. The brew has fruity, hoppy notes, and deep, malty undertones.
Bock: Stronger than your typical lager and a more robust malt character, Bocks have a rich and malty flavor with a slight hint of hops bitterness.
Porter: Consists of roasted malts or roasted barley and typically fermented with slow fermenting yeast. Has mild flavor with notes of roasted grains, chocolate, and toffee.
Stout: Made with black un-malted barley which causes the color and flavor characteristics of stouts. Stouts have a heavily roasted flavor and hints of coffee, chocolate, licorice, and molasses with no hoppy flavor.
