Lagers have been around for a long time, but the beer world is always changing and there are many newer types of lager on the market. Generally the difference between a lager and an ale is that the yeast employed for fermentation of a lager works at a cooler temperature and sinks to the bottom of the fermentation vessel. Ale yeasts work at higher temperatures and rise to the top of the vessel. Lagers are “bottom fermented” beers.
