Beer 101: The Differences Between Lagers and Ales

Last updated 5 years ago

Beer has a long history, stretching back millennia to the very dawn of recorded history. For most of that time, almost all brewers in all countries and regions of the world crafted ales. Lager, a distinct style of beer, was not discovered until relatively recently.

Watch this video to learn more about the difference between lagers and ales. You will learn what distinguishes these two beer styles from one another, from the fermentation tank to the glass. The video also contains food pairing tips for both types of beer.

When you attend Professional Bartending Schools of America, you will not only learn how to mix cocktails, but how to pour a beer and differentiate the different styles of this delicious beverage. Learn more about our bartender schools across the nation today by calling us at (513) 542-3500.
