We all love beer

What Beer Shall I go witH?

The gentle sound of the gas escaping when the cap of the bottle is opened marks the start of a journey of tasting and sensations of various types. Every style of beer has a special flavor and aroma, ready to be tried. The first contact with the smell, the flavors of the first sip, and that taste that remains in the mouth afterward mark this new discovery, which is always better when shared with friends. Since there are more than 120 styles of beer around the world, you are certain to find one ideal for every occasion. But to facilitate the choice, it is good to know that all of them fall into three major groups: Ale, Lager, and Lambic. The difference between one group and another is the type of fermentation, which are top, bottom, and spontaneous, respectively, and each of them results in different styles and flavors.

BeeRmaking ScHoolS

  • EnglisH

    EnglisH

    EnglisH

    Some say that this is the oldest beermaking school of all. It has gone through major changes over the course of its existence and, thanks to its long history, which began with a low-cost beverage for the entire population, the English School came roaring back in the 1970s with the Campaign for Real Ale. It is a school that can suit all tastes, from the taverns to the famous pubs. Beermaking Influence: it's the land of Ale! The main styles are IPA, Bitter, Stout, Barley Wine, Porter, etc.
  • GermaN

    GermaN

    The Germans are the fathers of Lager (in German, the word means "to store"), which is the most-consumed beer family in the world. Up until the 16th century, the most consumed beer had been Ale, but through an attempt to homogenize the brewing process, the Germans invented this fermentation and storage at low temperatures, creating the Lager. However, we can't talk about German beermaking without talking about the Purity Law. Created in the 16th century, this law required producers to use only three ingredients in the beverage: water, barley malt, and hops. Only later yeasts were added. Beermaking Influence: Pilsner, Altbier, Kölsch, Weizenbier, Bock, etc.
  • BelgiaN

    BelgiaN

    Unlike the German School, here everything that could add flavor to the beer was welcome. For this reason, Belgian beers have a huge variety of styles and flavors. The beers from the monasteries are a major feature of this school, where the monks produce beers today in the same way they have been made for centuries. In addition, the Belgians also make a peculiar style of beer that includes Lambic, Gueuze, and Kriek, produced with wild yeasts. Beermaking Influence: Strong Golden Ale, Witbier, Dubbel, Tripel, Lambic, Gueuze, etc.
