Style Guide

SPRING 2012

This Spring has certainly come early, and with that said, it’s time to transition over to Spring-appropriate beer styles.  We’ve selected Maibocks, Bière de Gardes, and Tripels as our recommended go-to styles for this Spring, and also given you our “Top 5” recommended examples to try from each style.   Pick up a copy at the top beer stores in the Philly area, or if you live elsewhere, just download the info from the link below!

WINTER 2011/2012

This one was HARD … how to narrow down all the robust and flavorful beers of Winter to select just 3 Styles?  And then a Top 5 list for each Style??  Nearly impossible, but we’re giving it our best with our Winter edition this year, which features Belgian Strong Dark Ales, Double IPAs, and American Imperial Stouts.  Pick one up in the Philly area at the best distributors and bottle shops, or just download a copy here:

AUTUMN 2011

We’re moving our Style Guide to a Quarterly/Seasonal version, and starting it off with the Autumn edition for 2011.   It was tough choosing between all the great styles that highlight the Fall, like Amber Ales, Brown Ales, Dunkelweizens, American Stouts, Porters, and Dubbels… but our Top 3 beer styles for Fall are Oktoberfests, Weizenbocks, and Pumpkin Ales.  Get our top 3 recommended varieties for each style below.  Enjoy!

AUGUST 2011

Hey folks, it’s August… it’s still hot and nasty out there, and those hyped-up Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ales will still be in your beer store after the kids get back in school.  So may we recommend some seasonally appropriate styles for you this month???  Give a shout out to some Czech Pilseners, Belgian IPAs, and the “oh yes we did” style – Gueuze.   You can pick this up at the best beer stores in the Philly area, or just download a copy through the link below:

March is upon us, and whether you partake in the revelry of St. Patty’s Day or not, there’s no denying the fact that it dominates the beer conversation in March.   But it’s also still pretty nippy out there, so we made sure not to totally give up on the hearty beers either.  This month’s Style Guide features Baltic Porters, Irish Dry Stouts, and Doppelbocks.  And you can find this month’s guide at the following places: Michael’s Deli, Frontier Saloon, The Beer Store SouthamptonPinocchio’s, Craft Beer Outlet, Beer Yard, Capone’s, Kunda Beverage, Ron’s Original, Exton Beverage, Hawthornes Café, The Foodery (N.
