Try out new beer styles…

As the micro brewed and craft beers have become increasingly popular over the last few years. The awareness of the different varieties and styles of beer have become more and more evident. Many home brewers can tell you the characteristics of Lager beer vs. an IPA (Indian Pale Ale) and how they are brewed. Much like a wine connoisseur could tell you the difference between a Merlot and a Blush.

It can be both fun and informative to experiment with some different beer styles. Try out a Stout and Wheat beer or see how an Indian Pale Ale compares to a Pale Ale. Some larger liquor store also sponsor beer tasting events where the different distributers will allow you to taste test their different styles of beer. I highly recommend this if you have the opportunity.

There are now several micro breweries who market “Variety Packs” that allows you to try out several different styles, I also have a liquor store that I visit that allows you to mix-and-match six packs so you can pick and choose what beer go into your 6 pack. This is a good way to try out different beer types because you can easily taste the different styles next to each other. I do this often because it gives me an idea of what type of Beer brewing Extract Kit I want to try out next.

Have fun : ) JB
