Tally up your totals to find discover your kindred beer style.

MOSTLY As: English Barley Wine
(Like Garrison Ol’ Fog Burner Barley Wine) You are fancy! You thrive on highbrow culture and sometimes feel like you don’t belong. But while you can put it on thick and come off a bit strong, you’ve got a loyal fan base and people usually warm up to once you get them under your roasty-toasty spell.

MOSTLY Bs: Fruit Lambic
(Like Propeller Framboise) You little tart, you. You are spontaneous, wild and kind of high-maintenance. No one’s ever quite sure what to expect with you, but when you’re good, you’re GOOD. People may think there’s something wrong with you at first, but they’ll learn to love your eccentricities.

MOSTLY Cs: Lager
(Like PEI Brewing Beach Chair Lager) You’re the non-gender-exclusive “bro” of the beer world. You’ll take a bit longer to mature, and you like things simple and easy, unfiltered and fun. Most people enjoy your company but will eventually abandon you for something with more substance.

MOSTLY Ds: American Double IPA
(Like Boxing Rock Vicar’s Cross Double IPA) You’re old-school. People either love you or hate you, and you don’t care either way. You’re both a relic of the past and the trendiest thing going. Whether you’re blowing minds or blowing kegs, you’re bitter, bold and full of character.
