Let’s begin with,

5 types of beers for winters


1. Ales

 Ales are ale-type beer. These beers are generally lighter bodied than stouts and porters. Ale yeast strains tend to produce higher alcohol levels than lager yeasts, making them perfect for drinking at colder temperatures. The best types of ales for enjoying during winter holidays include pale ale, brown ale, golden ale, and India pale ale (IPA).

 2. Lagers

 Lagers are dark-colored, deep-bodied beers that are brewed using a different type of yeast strain. Lager yeasts have lower alcohol tolerance, which makes them ideal for cold weather conditions. Lagers are often referred to as “winter beers” because they pair well with cooler temperatures. Popular examples of lagers include pilsner, wheat beer, bock bier, dunkelweizen, kolsch, and doppelbock.

 3. Stouts & Porters

 Stouts and porters are darker-colored versions of ales with distinct flavors and aromas. Because of their high alcohol content, these beers are meant to be consumed after dinner. Examples of stout and porter styles include Irish stout, black stout, Baltic Porter, Scotch Ale, English Brown Stout, chocolate stout, etc.

 4. Specialty Beers

 Specialty beers are those that fall outside of the traditional categories mentioned above. These include Belgian strong ales, American IPAs, and barley wines.

 5. Craft Beer/Microbreweries

 Craft beer refers to small batches of beer produced by independent breweries. Many craft brewers use local ingredients and offer unique flavor profiles. Microbreweries are smaller operations that brew their own beers.
