If you're looking to venture into the world of beer but don’t know where to start, we're here for you!
Well, actually, certified Cicerone (i.e. she basically has a beer degree!) and beer director at Treadwell Park in NYC, Anne Becerra, is!
When she visited our show, she walked Rach through four of the most common beer types -- a.k.a. the ones you’re most likely to find in bars and restaurants!
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR: A light, refreshing beer
TRY: Pilsner and Pale Lager
"When people think [of] beer, this is probably the flavors that [they’re] thinking of," Anne says, "because 95 percent of the beer in the world is of this style."
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR: A non-bitter beer
"Witbiers tend to be a great option to get people to try new things," the beer pro explains, "because they're more refreshing, citrusy and juicy, rather than bitter or harsh."
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR: A bold-flavored beer
TRY: India Pale Ale (IPA)
"A common thread that IPAs have is their hot bitterness," the certified Cicerone says. "What's exciting now is that a lot of newer breweries are incorporating more hot flavor, but less bitterness."
In other words, if you've tried an IPA and you thought it was way too bitter, Anne suggests giving IPAs another shot, as they keep evolving!
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR: A dessert-flavored beer (Coffee and chocolate lovers, this one's for you!)
"People see dark beer sometimes and get a little nervous, because they assume that it’s going to be heavy or really strong," Anne explains. "[But] color has absolutely nothing to do with the strength of a beer, the body of a beer, anything."
"It just says that there’s a little dark malt used," she continues. "And dark malt is roasted similarly to how coffee and chocolate are roasted."
