Beer Learnin' - the BJCP Guidelines

This is for the beer geeks out there. Ever wonder what exactly the distinctions are between different types of beers? What exactly makes a pilsner a pilsner and a lager a lager? The Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) has created the BJCP Guidelines to help resolve just such a question.

Turns out there are 23 main categories of beer, plus 3 categories of mead and 2 categories of cider. Who knew? Really interesting (i.e. dorky) reading if you are into beer and also kind of a nerd.
