Beer Tasting 101
Need to brush up on your brew IQ? Or just looking for a new go-to on tap? With so many types of beer available, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when choosing the perfect pint. Here’s a breakdown of two popular styles of beer (ales and lagers) so you’ll be able to order confidently at dinner and get more out of your next brewery tour.
Ales are often darker than lagers, ranging from rich gold to reddish amber. Fruity and fuller-bodied, they have pleasantly bitter tones.
Heavily roasted flavor with hints of coffee
Pairs well with roasted and smoked foods, barbecue, and chocolate
Notes of chocolate with mild roast in the finish
Pairs well with pork, salmon, and red meat
India Pale Ale (IPA)
A pronounced hop bitterness profile from start to finish
High alcohol content
Pairs well with burgers, pizza, Buffalo wings, and fried foods
Robust hop aroma and medium bitterness
Lower alcohol content than IPAs
Pairs well with spicy, smoky, and heat-charred foods
Lagers are usually pale to medium in color, though some can be as dark as black (think Sam Adams Black Lager). Their taste is usually described as clean and crisp.
Balance of hops and malt with crisp, dry finish
Pairs well with Thai, Asian, Mexican, and other spicy cuisine
Pronounced hop aroma and bitterness with a refreshing finish
Pairs well with salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
Rich, sweet caramels and warm, toasty flavors
Pairs well with Cajun, jerk, slow-roasted, and seared foods
