The wide variety of beers

I’ve just taken three cans of craft beer out of the fridge. One of them is called a ‘session rye IPA’, another is an ‘oatmeal stout’ and the third styles itself as a ‘blood orange IPA’. And beer-makers have plenty more names where those came from.

Suddenly there seems to be a million styles of beer out there and it’s easy to get bamboozled (or should that be booze-bambled?) by all the frothy descriptions their makers use.
