4 Best Types of Beer for Happy Hour, Honolulu, Hawaii

With its fantastic deals on brews, happy hour is the perfect time to expand your palate and try some new beers. You have a lot of options at the bar, so learn about some of the most popular types you should try.

Which Beers to Try at Happy Hour

1. Lager

Lagers are some of the most popular beers out there. They are brewed at a lower temperature, so the yeast takes longer to ferment than in ales. This creates a light flavor that gives the brewer a lot of flexibility in the body flavor. There are three main types of lagers: light, dark, and amber.

2. Stout

happy hourThe stout is a dark beer, and perhaps one of the most well-known types is the famous Guinness stout. These beers are smooth, creamy, and easy to drink. Though people associate them with a high alcohol content, they range from low to high ABV.

3. IPA

The IPA, or India Pale Ale, has exploded in popularity in the craft beer scene. These brews tend to taste hoppy or even bitter to some. They also tend to be higher in alcohol content. The session IPA has a lower alcohol content—below 5%—while the double has a high ABV with more hops.

4. Pilsner

The pilsner was the world’s first pale lager, originating in the Czech city of Pilsen. It’s considered a summer ale with its crisp and light flavor. Many countries have taken this brewing style and made it their own. For example, the German style tends to be more golden and has an earthier taste. The American style has higher alcohol percentages and more malt.
