2. IPAs & Pale Ales: ie Dogfish Head IPA, Brooklyn East IPA, St. Ambroise Pale Ale. Packing more of a punch and a longer finish, IPAs and Pales Ales generally go well with salty, mexican, and fried foods.

3. Amber Ales: ie. Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale, Fish Tale Organic Amber Ale, Full Sail Amber Ale. Having evolved from the American Pale Ale, the Amber Ale ranges in colour from a light amber to a light brown and contains sweet caramel notes. Amber Ales go great with most BBQ foods, pizza, and wild game.

5. Cream Stouts: Mackeson’s XXX Stout, Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, and Samuel Adams Cream Stout. Cream stouts contain lactose, a sugar that helps balance the bitterness of the beer; perhaps for that reason, cream stouts are paired nicely with desserts.
