Mixed-Style Beer

BJCP 2021:


Mixed-Style Beer is not a style with a specific historical tradition, but rather it encompasses creations where brewers combine elements from multiple beer styles to create a unique hybrid. These beers do not fit neatly into established categories since they take on characteristics across different styles. The intention behind this "style" is to push the boundaries of traditional brewing and allow for creativity and innovation in beer production.

Flavor and aroma profiles in Mixed-Style Beers are as diverse as their appearances. They can feature combinations such as the hop-forward bitterness of an IPA with the malty backbone of a brown ale or the fruity esters of a Belgian ale mixed with the roastiness of a stout. It's common for such beers to present layered complexities that reflect their dual nature. They often challenge and delight drinkers by presenting unexpected harmonies or contrasts within their tastes and scents, making them difficult to classify but enjoyable for those who appreciate unconventional brews.
