Specialty beer is made with or processed using an ingredient or method that is outside convention. For starters, beer with additions of fruit, herbs, spices and the like can be considered a specialty brew, particularly, if the special ingredient is a key component in the overall experience of the product. As well, additions or modifications to the brewing process, such as fermenting ale yeasts at a warm temperature and maturing the resulting brew at cooler lager temperatureees, can also create a specialty beer. Basically, specialty beers are nothing sort of fantastic. Their interesting additions and modes of preparation create unique flavour profiles, colours and aromas that are sometimes a welcome alternate from the everyday.
