What is the Difference Between Lager and Ale?
Much of the difference between lager and ale is down to the variety of hops and grains added during brewing. Yet, the main distinction actually comes from the yeast used to make them.
Ale utilises top-fermenting yeast that performs best in warm conditions, whereas lager uses bottom-fermenting yeast that thrives in cold environments. So, it’s no surprise that lager is best served cold.
