Understanding Beer

Graduation marks many lifestyle changes in a twentysomething’s life. Expectations for civility are raised, wardrobes are re-jiggered, and use of the word “dude” may need to be budgeted more wisely

. These things, for better or for worse, are often essential elements of a recent grad’s transition into the “real world.” But one post-college myth that’s bandied about far too often is that as soon as you leave school, you have to stop drinking beers and start sipping wine. There’s a false belief that wine is the drink of “adults” and “nice dinners,” while beer is for the unsophisticated Joe Sixpacks of the world.

Well, I’m here to flip the script. Graduating college does not mean you have to throw away the beers. Maybe you should throw away the Keystone Lights and stop referring to them as “frat waters,” but it would be a shame to give up completely on such a varied and delicious genre of alcoholic beverage.

A true beer enthusiast will always be down to sample a new brew, even if it’s 8 o’clock in the morning. But it’s certainly worth developing an arsenal of “go-to” beers for casual sessions and enjoyment at home. Your best bet is to try a bunch of beers and see what you like. Here’s a very quick overview of some popular types of beers worth exploring, as well as some terminology that will help you ask after them at stores and bars.

Beer terms

Some lingo to help you navigate the beer bar.

  • Hops. You’ll hear talk of “hops” and “hoppy” taste when you’re around beer drinkers. Hops come from hop plants (surprise!), and they are used as the primary flavoring agent in most beers. H...
