Beer Types is a user defined category used for reporting and classifying beer products. It is added with the Beer/Wine Plugin and added to brands through the Marketing Panel. Beer Types are, in the purest sense, lager and ale, as most beer falls into one of these two styles. There are a few exceptions (lambics, ciders, etc.). Beer Types can be used in conjunction with Beer Styles, which can further break up lagers and ales into additional categories.
