Make Your Best Sticke Altbier

This recipe takes everything you love about the Altbier and turns up the volume, and while that's not really something you need every day it certainly makes for a great change of pace!

Make Your Best Czech Dark Lager

An interesting style that is semi-hard to find commercially… this sounds like just the kind of beer that homebrewers should be lining up to make!

Make Your Best International Amber Lager

This can be a great session lager to help you recruit your macro-drinking friends into the world of craft/homebrewed beer, and for your own purposes it's a nice tap to have on when you're looking for lighter flavors with a bit more character behind them.

Make Your Best Czech Amber Lager

Start working this one into your autumn or late-winter lineup (I like it as a “welcome to spring” beer), and I think you’ll find yourself with a new favorite sessionable lager.

Make Your Best American IPA

There are so many versions, varieties, and approaches here that it would be arrogant to claim this will be your best American IPA, but it’s at least a very, very good one that has held up well to the test of time.

Make Your Best Pre-Prohibition Porter

Pre-Prohibition Porter is described in the guidelines as being like a less-hoppy American Porter and a less-caramelly English Porter.

“Baroness von Rycknell” Flanders Red Recipe

A classic Flanders Red Ale is a riot of flavors, from rich fruity notes of black currant and plum and berries, to bright acidity and dark funk, and even a raw-grain-and-biscuit malt background

Make Your Best Oud Bruin

This is a good starter sour for those looking to move away from beginner styles but don’t yet have a lot of confidence or experience. It's also a style that advanced brewers can have a lot of fun with and really dial in to their personal preferences.

Make Your Best Pale Kellerbier

Kellerbier is functionally similar to British pale ales in that it was/is often cask-conditioned and served young and unfiltered, often with very low carbonation.

“Grosser Weizen” Wheatwine Recipe

Wheatwine is a higher-alcohol beer with a significant contribution of flavor and texture from malted wheat. It also allows for “mild” hops character, and we’ll pair some classic American citrus and Continental floral notes.
