Everything you need to know about beer, in one chart
There are dozens upon dozens of different styles of beer out there, from pale ales to stouts to bocks - and those are just a few.
Being that there are so many styles, and so many exceptions to the rules, it's incredibly difficult (not to mention time-consuming) to get to know them all, but knowing your favorites will make drinking them a lot more enjoyable.
We've created a taxonomy of most major beer styles to help you put your favorite cold ones into context.
