Something as seemingly simple as ordering a beer has gotten incredibly complicated in recent years with the boom of craft breweries and options. Delicious, but confusing.
Now CraftBeer.com has launched a virtual guide to help you narrow your choices and expertly pick your brew. The Craft Beer Styles Guide informs you of flavoring, the proper glass shape to serve it in, temperature, food pairings and more.
The site features incredible photos and allows you to sort by color, bitterness, alcohol levels and flavor. It’s the result of a two-year review of top beer styles in the United States that have been cross-referenced with the Brewers Association and Beer Judge Certification Program guidelines, and features 77 beer styles, according to the site.
“At CraftBeer.com we aim to provide beer lovers with exactly what they want to know,” said Julia Herz, publisher of CraftBeer.com and craft beer program director at the Brewers Association, in an online statement. “One of the best things about beer is the amazing variety of styles. From the beer beginner to geek from chefs to foodies alike these guidelines are presented in a groundbreaking new format designed for easy reference.”
