Beer Styles

Back in the old days, before global breweries vied for market share, each city, even each neighborhood in a city, had its own beer style. As transporting the beer got easier, the neighborhood styles merged into a city style, and the various city styles merged into regional styles, and then into national styles.

Today, there are dozens of beer styles. However, your average convenience store only carries, at best, three or four.

One of my favorite sites is Beer Advocate. Their beer styles page is one of the best resources for learning about the various types of beer.
