Call this a public service announcement. The Brewers Association has released their 2011 Beer Style Guidelines. Of debatable use to craft beer fans in general, the guidelines are invaluable for judging beer competitions and as a reference for brewers. If you are itching to know the precise difference between Ordinary, Special, and Extra Special Bitters, or if you need party trivia such as knowing there are thirteen different Belgian-style beers, this guide is also for you.
