Beer Advocate Beer Styles...

Postby BeerIsGood » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:14 am

If you go to Beer Styles under Beer on the BA website (as you all probably know), they list 104 different styles. Agree or disagree on the designations, I find it an enjoyable occasional exercise to run through them all to see how many I've tried. I've knocked off a couple since the last time through. Some of them, such as Kvass and Braggot, I've never even seen. 92-12 as of this last trip through. If anyone's tried them all...well, hats off!

I think I've shaved it down to about a half-dozen styles. Kvass, Happoshu, low alcohol beer, Faro, Biere de Champagne and unblended lambic are the ones that I definitely haven't had. There might be one or two others I'm missing.

If you're looking to tick off a braggot, those Trafalgar meads at the LCBO (now in tiny Red Bull-esque cans) are typically categorized as 'braggot' on BA.

Good to know regarding the Braggot, thanks. Faro is one I knocked since the last time I did this by having a Lindemans.

All Stars Bakery makes a Kvass. You can find it in Russian supermarkets and it is usually in 2l plastic sofa bottle.

Nah, just sit back and let the AI do the work for you!

Alexa, what is this shit I'm drinking?
Cortana, what is diacetyl?
Siri, where can I get a fake beard so I can drink with the cool guys?
Google, please auto correct my typing based on your continued creepy observation of me.
And so on... :wink:
