Beer Styles

by

Hello fellow gamers and beer drinkers, below you will find clickable links to every style of beer we could find. Each link will provide you a breakdown of what that beer is and any examples we have reviewed on this site.

Please be aware that we are not experts but did conduct alot of research into making the most comprehensive list possible. A few constants we have come across while trying to organize this list is the following:

1. There are many categories and sub-categories to beer types, however the two main categories are Ales and Lagers. We included Mixed Styles to cover those brews that dip into both categories or are undefined.
2. Naming conventions differ from site to site so we can only use what we know.
3. Ultimately we decided to organize beer in a way that makes sense to us.
