Beer has many varieties, and finding a new favorite brew can be easy! There are many types of beer; here are the most common types in America.


Pale Ale:

                This golden, pale beer bas is flavored with hops and barley. These ales can vary in flavor, but are generally bold with a stronger hops flavor.  Indian Pale Ales, or (IPA’s) have become popular and have a stronger hops flavor and are brighter tasting and more bitter.

Our recommendations:

Pale Ale

 Oskar Blues-Dale’s Pale Ale

Great Lakes-Burning River

Left Hand – Stranger APA


Bells’ – Two Hearted Ale

Ballast Point – Sculpin IPA

Dogfish Head – 60 Minute IPA

Amber Ale:

                This golden-red beer is a richer and hopier, highly carbonated beer. These ales typically have a citrus flavor with some bitterness from the high hop content.

Our recommendations:

Stone-Levitation Ale

Bell’s – Amber Ale

Breckenridge – Avalanche Ale



This dark beer is a sweeter beer that has flavors of coffee, chocolate and oatmeal. Many companies make specialty spiced or flavored stouts playing off the richness of the stout.

Our recommendations:

North Coast –Old Rasputin

New Holland –Dragon’s Milk

Ale Smith – Speedway Stout
