The first major addition to the knowledge base at Extol Beer is the Beer Style page. The reasons behind this is simple: knowing the different styles of beer is the best way to quickly understand beer as a whole. The best strategy for a new craft beer drinker especially is to familiarize oneself with the characteristics of different beer styles.
The world of beer is vast and the range of sights, aromas, flavors, and feels is dauntingly immense. By coming familiar with the hugeness of all beer can be broken down and explored piece by piece. Another strategy is skipping around from different styles until the drinkers finds one that intrigues them and then exploring that style with vigor.
The Beer Styles page currently contains:
- Why categorize beer?
- Use of basic terms and definitions for ale and lager
- Links and discussion of three different beer style guides.
- Breaking the Rules – why styles can’t contain us.
Cheers and Extol Beer.
