Types of Beer
While there are many types of beer, all beers can be categorized as either an ale or a lager. The big difference between the two is the type of yeast used during fermentation. An ale has yeast that ferments on the top (top fermenting), while a lager has a yeast that ferments at the bottom of the beer mixture (bottom fermenting).

Once you determine whether a beer is an ale or a lager, they can then be categorized by flavor, color and aroma of beer.

Below are the typical beer styles:
1. ALE (top fermenting)
Belgian Style, Brown Ale, Fruit beers, Pale Ale, IPA, Porter, Sours, Stout, Wheat Beer
2. LAGER (bottom fermenting)
Pale Lagers, Dark Lagers, German Style Bocks, Pilsners
