"Style Hunter" Provisional Styles
« on: July 09, 2018, 11:37:26 PM »
I attended Gordon Strong's "Style Hunter" session at Homebrew Con 2018 where he discussed the provisional styles that have been added to the BJCP guidelines.  He talked about 6: NE IPA, grisette, New Zealand pilsner, Burton ale, Catharina sour, and one other.  I didn't take notes on it because it wasn't one that piqued my interest as something I wanted to brew, but now I've been asked by my club to give a presentation on the "new" styles.  Here's the rub -- only 4 of the 6 Gordon talked about actually got added.  I know it's not a big deal since that sixth style didn't make the cut, but it's bugging me that I can't remember.

Is there anyone on here that can remind me of what that last style was?  I want to say Mexican lager, but I'm not sure.  I know the people in my club would be interested to know what's on BJCP's radar, even if they haven't been added as provisional categories as of yet.

Yep, Mexican Lager was the other. He had a recipe for one in his presentation also.

Are we going to use this thread to complain about the new styles or should we start a new one?

Why not just use this one?

I was actually slightly (VERY slightly) serious about the Butterfly Pea Blue Glitter IPA.  I predict this could become a provisional style in 1-2 more years.  Maybe.

It's kind of funny, there are more than just a handful of craft breweries up here now making Mexi-Lagers, so I'm not surprised to see it as one of the provisional styles.
I like clean well made lagers, and the good ones I've had are quite enjoyable on a hot day.
