Exploring The Wonderful World Of Beer On National Beer Day

It’s that time of the year again—National Beer Day is Sunday, April 7, 2024. With so many varieties and no shortage of unique flavours, it’s easy to see why this popular ice-cold adult beverage deserves a day all its own. Whether you want light and crisp, dark and rich, or something in between, beer has you covered. So raise a glass, order another pint, and let’s learn more.

If you’re looking for a refreshing brew look no further than a classic lager. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, lagers are known for their light body and subtle hop bitterness. They’re the perfect patio drink and pair well with spicy food.

Want a bit more bite? Order yourself an IPA (India Pale Ale). These beers are bursting with hop flavour and come in a variety of styles with flavourful notes that range from citrusy and juicy to bold and piney. As a result, IPAs are a great drink to reach for with a hot slice of pizza or a trendy charcuterie board.

Feeling a little dark? Stouts and Porters are the way to go. These beers are rich, full-bodied and often have a creamy texture—perfect for cozying up with a loved one and relaxing at the end of the day. Did we mention they also go well with desserts and chocolate?

And let’s not forget about tart and funky sour ales. These brews are highly acidic for a unique flavour that can be oddly addictive in the best way possible. They often have underlying fruity notes and they’re a great match for assorted cheeses or fresh seafood.

Of course, these are just a few of the many beer styles out there, each with its own unique characteristics and flavors. So, this National Beer Day, why not take the opportunity to explore something new? Whether you’re a seasoned beer aficionado or just starting to sip, there’s always something exciting to try. Cheers!
