Beer Guide

Explore a World of Styles

From tried-and-true porch-sippin’ lagers to rare imperial stouts originally brewed for the Czar of Russia, there are thousands of beers to discover. And when paired with your favorite recipes, the exploration becomes even more enticing. The adventure begins as soon as you fill your glass. All you have to do is pour.

There are many types of beer. But they all fall into two main categories:

Ales: All beers in the ale category are brewed at warmer temperatures using top-fermenting yeast, yielding a robust, fruity flavor profile.

Lagers: The opposite of ales, lagers are brewed at cooler temperatures with a bottom-fermenting yeast that produces beers with a crisp refreshing finish and a subtle flavor profile.

Brewing Basics

Beer is made with four basic ingredients—Water, Grain, Hops and Yeast.

Water: Considered to be the foundation for brewing, a clean, fresh, ample water source is a must for making beer.

Grain: Often referred to as the “soul” of beer, grain provides the sugar that will later be fermented into alcohol. Barley is the most commonly used grain, but rice, wheat, rye, oats, and corn are also used.

Hops: Hops provide flavor and aroma, in addition to contributing bitterness that helps balance the malt sweetness brought on by the grain.

Yeast: In a process known as fermentation, yeast eats the sugars provided by the grains. This results in flavor, carbonation, and alcohol.

Beer for The Senses

Taste is only part of the experience, beer appeals to almost all the senses.

Appearance: When available, serve your beer in a glass and notice a broad spectrum of color, ranging from light-golden pilsners to deep, dark porters and stouts.

Aroma: Don’t be too eager for a sip. Otherwise, you’ll miss out on one of the best parts—deep aromas of hops, roasted malts, and spices.

Taste: If you take your time and really focus on what you taste, you will detect a deep, complex flavor profile, full of subtle nuances and hidden treasures your palate will never expect.

Mouth Feel: The way a beer feels in your mouth is called body or texture. Light beers have a light, crisp feel, while darker/heavier beers tend to have a thick, dense mouth feel.
