Different Types of Beer for Delivery
If you thought beer was just beer, well, you’re wrong. Saucey recognizes that beer is a rainbow of different colors, flavors and smells and we are committed to letting you experience the entire spectrum of fermented bread juice. Below are all the different kinds of beer styles available fore delivery through Saucey:
Brewed using a warm fermentation method, which gives it a full-bodied fruity flavor. Originally, ale was brewed using gruit instead of hops, but that all changed when the Purity Law went into effect.
There are many different types of ale, like the following:
- Brown Ale: Lightly hopped. Mildly flavored. Earthy, nutty flavors.
- Pale Ale: Bitter. Lighter color and body than traditional ale.
- India Pale Ale: Extra hoppy. Strong, bold flavors. King of the homebrews.
Lager / Pilsner Delivery
Your first beer was probably a lager. It’s an easy-drinking, flavorful beer brewed in low temperatures. They range from pale to golden brown to dark brown in color.
- Pale Lagers: Mildly flavored. Best served cold. Well balanced — not to sweet, not too bitter, not too hoppy. Most light beers are pale lagers.
- Dark Lagers: Less common. Higher alcohol by volume. Bolder, richer flavors. Range from amber to dark brown in color.
- Pilsner: Originally called a blond lager. Somewhere between pale and dark lagers. Think Heineken, Beck’s, and Stella Artois.
Porter / Stout Delivery
Stouts are are dark, rich, and handsome. They’re made by roasting malt and barley hops to darken them and enhance their flavors. They also tend to have higher alcohol by volume. Originally called Stout Porters, they earned their name by being the strongest batch of Porter beers in the 1700s. Technically, there are no differences between Stouts and Porters. But there are a few different types of Stout beers.
- Milk Stout: Made using milk, these stouts are sugary sweet. Once believed to have natural healing powers. Still up for debate.
- Dry Stout: The most popular stout style. A direct response to the sweet milk stouts being made in England. Contains small amounts of unmalted roasted barley. Dry and bitter to the taste. Most famous stout is the Guinness Draught.
- Porter: Flavored with roast malted barley instead of unlimited barley like a stout. Tend to be less bitter than stouts, with slightly less ABV.
- Flavored Stout: In addition to milk, some stouts are flavored with chocolate or oatmeal.
Sour Beer Delivery
Sour beer is decisive: you either love it or you hate it. These beers don’t taste like other beers, they’re different. Sourness in a lager, ale or stout is a sign that the brewer effed up by letting bacteria fester in their brew, but sour beer brewers intentionally let safe strains of bacteria and yeast multiply to achieve a tart, puckering flavor. Sometimes they add fruit or another flavor for a little extra something. Sours are the chaos agent of beer, so wrong it’s right. Any type of beer can be turned sour with the right bacteria, but some processes have become standardized over time as pre-eminent sours:
- American Wild Ale: As the name implies, an American ale that has wild yeast introduced. These ultra-funky and unique brews are at the niche forefront of craft brewing. Bottles with rare yeasts can be as expensive as Champagne.
- Gose: A German classic, this sour has coriander and salt added to it. The flavor of Gose starts out sour, followed by a salty-spicy aftertaste. Try Dogfish SeaQuench for a sessionable sour.
- Berliner Weisse: Another German beer, Berliner Weisse was once known as “the Champagne of Beers” because of it’s light color and effervescent bubbles. Haters have said this beer is “too much” like soda, while lovers say “that’s exactly why I drink it.”
- Berliner Weisse: Often mixed with fruit flavors, and usually takes on the color of that fruit– so if you want a naturally pink beer, let’s say, try Mikkeller Raspberry Blush, flavored with raspberries and a touch of coffee.
- Lambic: A deep, dark, malty Belgian ale that is soured with wild yeasts and flavored with fruit, usually cherries (kriek lambic) or strawberries (framboise lambic). This is the stuff medieval monks used to drink.
