Looking for a way to improve your appreciation and knowledge of beer?
The RateBeer Style Guide gives you definitions that let you know what goes into a style of beer
and what you might expect to taste in it. We've also included notes on what foods might best
complement the style, like American Pale Ale with big juicy burgers or a big roasty stout with chocolate mousse.
Finally, we've listed the top five rated beers at RateBeer in each style so that you
can stock up on all the best of breed.
The beer style guide was written by Josh Oakes, world beer critic/writer and champion rater at RateBeer. The guide is updated regularly.
