Beer Education

Beer education is an important part of Free The Hops' mission.

We want you to know and understand the wondrous complexities of beer: its history, why the balance of ingredients like malt and hops changes the flavor, how to tell the difference between a lager and a pale ale, how beer should be served, and how best to enjoy it.

On these pages, we provide you with some beer basics: beer styles, ideas for beer and food pairings, and other articles and information about this often misunderstood beverage.

We plan to expand this area over time so be sure to check back for even more information about your favorite beverage.
