Top 14 Beer Styles by Fermentation Type
Despite the fact that there are many, many varieties of beer out there, the classification system can be boiled down to only two styles: Top-Fermented beer and Bottom-Fermented beer. In top-fermented beer, the yeast sits on top of the wort as it ferments. In the other type, bottom-fermented beer, the yeast sinks to the bottom for fermentation. It’s a large distinction and should be noted.
Below are the top 7 beers fermented by each method.
