Ales vs Lager

Any beer that you take is either an Ale or a lager. The difference between the two is the fermentation process it takes. 

Ale Styles of Beer.

The fermentation process of ales occurs at the top of the tank, top-fermenting, and usually occurs in a warmer climate. This quickens the fermentation process and makes the beer more flavorful and darker. Common Ale styles include the pale ales, stouts, India pale ales (IPA), wheat and Belgian styles, and porters.

An example of ales available on the V-bar is the Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. Order today on the V-Bar and enjoy the best alcohol delivery service in Nairobi.

Pale Ale

Pale ale is characterized by being hoppy but of less alcohol content when compared to IPA’s. Most types of pale ale include Tusker.

 India Pale Ales (IPA)

These contain higher alcohol content. Each type has different tastes ranging from malty, fruity, or bitter, dependent on the origin of the hops and herbs present during brewing. Visit the V-Bar for the best beer delivery service.


These beers are dark and made with roasted malt/ barley, hops, water, and yeast. Depending on the origin of the beer stout, it can either be sweet or bitter. Sweet stout beers are mainly from England and Ireland. On the other hand, Bitter stout beers are from America. An example of a sweet stout beer is the Guinness Foreign Extra Stout.

Wheat beers 

These beers rely on roasted wheat, which gives it a light color and the subtle spicy and creamy taste with the right alcohol level when you just need to relax. Get your beer delivery in Nairobi from the V-Bar.

Lager Styles of Beer

For Lagers, the fermentation process occurs at the bottom hence taking a longer period and it happens in cooler temperatures. They are bubbly, light, and a little malty but not challenging on the flavor. If you are a beginner to the beer world, then a lager is not a bad place to start and find your acquired taste along the way.

Some of the classic lagers you can order on the V-Bar include Tusker Lager, Tusker Lite, White Cap Lager, Faxe, and Balozi.

 Pale Lager or ‘Light Beer’

 This type of beer has a reduced alcohol content and has lower calories when compared to other beers. An example of a pale lager is the Budweiser and Desperados.


These beers are characterized by their bubbly and crisp taste that’s perfect for a warm day. An example is Stella Artois or Pilsner Ice. Order your beer on the V-Bar and get it delivered within 60minutes to your doorstep.
