Best Beers for Every Occasion
Whether you are a beer aficionado or simply a fan of the hoppy stuff, there is a lot to love about the world’s finest brews. From old-school lagers and ales to new world craft IPAs, there is something for everyone.
A good place to start is with a pilsner. This traditional Czech brewing style dates back to the 1842 creation of Josef Groll, and it’s a masterful representation of bright, crisp balance across sweet, hops, malt and carbonation.
For this reason, a pilsner is an easy choice for your first beer of the day (or night). And, as one of the oldest breweries in the world, Germany’s Weihenstaphaner makes the country’s best pilsner, which features a balanced blend of Saaz hops and malted barley.
Another pilsner with a reputation for quality is the one that started it all: Heineken. Its light, clean, and crisp flavor is well-suited for a wide range of occasions.
If you’re looking for a more robust, hoppy beer with an enticing aroma and a complex, layered flavor, Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale is the king of the bunch. At 7% ABV, this incredibly drinkable American-style IPA packs an impressive range of flavors: pure pine, soft floral and juicy grapefruit, a striking nose (courtesy of Bell’s house yeast), and a long, dry finish.
If you’re a hard-working, blue-collar worker who can appreciate a classic beer with a refreshing, crisp taste that won’t get in the way of your busy schedule, then Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale is your go-to pick. It’s a favorite amongst beer enthusiasts and has a reputation as one of the best pale ales on the market.
