I talked with Glenn Cole who was sipping on a Saaz Off Shotgun from Radicle Effect. He told me there are 2 styles of beer.  A lager and an ale.  Now, I'm still not sure I understand, I'm still learning....but I do get that lagers are an interesting style of their own.  They aren't brewed very often because of the length of time it takes to condition. But when you get a good one...it's crisp & refreshing as hell. Lagers also are a great intro to craft beer for those who've only drank mass produced domestics.
You can check out Glenn's Podcast "What's Tappening" here where they talk with brewers from...not only the QC but all over the world.
