Brewers Association releases new Style Guidelines

The annual update to the Brewers Assocation Beer Style Guidelines landed this past week, bringing the total of recognized beer styles to 140. Added and defined this year: American-style Imperial Porter, American-Style India Black Ale, Belgian-Style Quadrupel and Fruit Wheat Ale or Lager.

These guidelines help small craft breweries design, brand, and market their delicious concoctions. Occasionally, the guidelines even help a homebrewer figure out the strange brew they've just mad-doctored together in their "laboratory."
