Beverages » Beer Styles 101
Do you know the difference between an Ale and a Lager? The answer may surprise you. Let beer geek Paul Schiavone of Boston Chefs walk you through the beer-making process and explain how all beer styles stem from only two classifications. Discover why each style exhibits a wide array of nuances in flavor and aroma. Finally, take your brew curiosity down to your local pub to put your tastebuds to work!
Paul Schiavone runs BostonChefs.com by day, and moonlights as a home beer brewer at night. His initial interest in beer sparked when his father returned from San Francisco with a bottle of Anchor Brewing Christmas Ale. It was like no beer he had ever tried. This was before a broad selection of microbrews from different regions were available to purchase, and Paul decided that if he wanted to drink a beer with that much character, he'd have to learn how to make it himself. His first batch wasn't drinkable (and was used as a punishment beer amongst his brothers during drinking games), but with time, his brewed batches improved. Today, he is experimenting with growing hops in his backyard, has mastered a variety of different beer styles, and even tried his hand at making mead.
