What is Beer?

“Beer” is an alcoholic beverage made by the fermentation of grain, just as wine is any alcoholic beverage made by the fermentation of fruit. In the vast majority of the world’s beers, the grain base is barley.

Wheat beers tend to taste like spices or citrus, with the hefeweizen or unfiltered wheat beer being one of the more common styles. These beer typically have a smooth head

    Sour Ale

    An ancient style of beer that's taken off in popularity in recent years, sour ales are crafted from wild yeasts, much like sourdough bread. These beers are known for a tart tang that pairs well with tropical fruit and spices. Within sour beers, you'll find lambics, which are Belgian sour beers mixed with fruit, goxses, a German sour beer made with coriander and sea salt, and Flanders, a Belgian sour beer fermented in wood tanks


    ABV - 4% - 10%. Ranging from light brown to dark brown. A type of ale, porter beers are known for their dark black colour and roasted malt aroma and notes. Porters may be fruity or dry in flavour, which is determined by the variety of roasted malt used in the brewing process.Best enjoyed with earthy or decadent food like chocolate cakes or grills.


    ABV 4% - 13% depending on region or subtypes. Like porters, stouts are dark, roasted ales. Stouts taste less sweet than porters and often feature a bitter coffee taste, which comes from unmalted roasted barley that is added to the wort. They are characterized by a thick, creamy head. Ireland's Guinness may be one of the world's best-known stouts. Enjoyed best with BBQ, Pies and chocolates.

Know the rules of beer storage

quick education on the storage for beers


he clock starts on kegs as soon as they get filled and sealed. Even an untapped keg is best to use sooner rather than later, so first-in, first-out is a good rule of thumb if you plan to store multiple kegs. Make sure to keep kegs in a cool, dry space and away from other foods. It's essential to avoid freezing the kegs, since freezing the beer will likely alter its taste. Avoid moving them around too much, because that can increase the amount of foam that will spurt out when you tap the keg.

Bottles and cans

Store packaged beer in a cool, dry place that isn't freezing. For optimal shelf life of bottled beer, store beer at a temperature between 45 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit and, if it's a bottle, make sure it's upright. You can prolong the shelf life of beer in cans and bottles if you keep them just above room temperature and just below freezing, but if there's no way to establish that, storing unopened cans and bottles in the fridge or at room temperature is acceptable.


Keeping growlers upright and in cool, dark spaces is, once again, the best way to go. The airtight lid will ensure the beer remains fresh for several days, and can remain fresh even longer if the bar that filled the growler did so with carbon dioxide. Once opened, the beer will stay fresh for up to 36 hours.
