Strong Ales

Varying in strength, color and hop character, strong ales are rich, fuller-bodied and meant for sipping. By increasing the amount of fermentable ingredients in the brewing process, the brewer increases the strength of the beer. The potential strength of the beer is tracked and estimated by the gravity of the wort, typically measured with an instrument called a hydrometer.
