FILL YOUR BRAIN WITH BEER


With all the different types of craft beer out there, it can get a little confusing. Here's a short description of the main styles to help you along your way. No need to thank us, but if you feel the need to show your gratitude, just buy some of our beer.

LAGER

Lager is German for ‘storeroom’ or ’warehouse’ and technically refers to beer conditioned at low temperatures. To you and I, a lager is a beer light in colour that is crisp, clean and refreshing and generally served chilled. The lager is one of the most common beer styles around the world.

PILSNER

Pilsners (sometimes spelt as Pilseners) are a type of pale lager and take their name from the town of Pilsen in the Czech Republic. They have a very light, clear colour and typically have a strong hop aroma and character compared to other lagers which gives them their characteristic “bite”. They’re best served chilled and can be very refreshing.

PALE ALE

Pale Ales covers a very broad range of beers but their common characteristic is the high proportion of pale malts used which gives them a much lighter colour than other ales. The modern take on a Pale Ale uses more hops than traditional English styles, meaning you can get a wide range of flavours from easy-drinking with subtle hop flavours, to big and challenging with lots of hops.

INDIA PALE ALE

The India Pale Ale, or more commonly, IPA, is a style of Pale Ale that was originally developed in England for export to colonial India. To ensure the beer survived the long journey by sea, the brewers added plenty of hops. This practice has continued in modern IPAs. They are generally light in colour with a hoppy aroma and flavour.

WHEAT BEER

Wheat beers are so-called thanks to the high proportion of wheat used in their brewing process. They originated in Germany and Belgium and are known for their cloudy appearance and light silky mouth-feel. More modern varieties also include citrus and spice notes to give them a bright, refreshing flavour.

STOUT & PORTER

A Stout is a dark beer made using roasted malt or roasted barley. It originated in England in the 1700s as a long-lasting, portable beer for the working class. A Stout is traditionally a stronger version of a Porter with higher alcohol and a more “stout” body and flavour. Thanks to the use of different types of malts these beers tend to have a range of flavours including nutty, chocolate, toffee and coffee and feature a rich and smooth mouth-feel.

IBUS

The International Bittering Units scale, or simply IBU scale, is the quantitative value designated to the measurement of bitterness of the beer. This scale is not measured on the perceived bitterness of the beer, but rather the amount of iso-alpha acids. For example, the bittering effect of hops is less noticeable in beers with roasted malts or strong flavours, so a higher proportion of hops would be required in strong flavoured beers to achieve the same perceived bitterness in moderately flavoured beers.
