This list discusses the best party beers, ranked by popularity, style of beer and taste points. There’s nothing better than celebrating a special event, throwing a Super Bowl party or just hanging out with friends; there’s nothing worse than throwing a party and serving the wrong kind of beer! If you’ve ever asked the question, “What are the best party beers out there?” before then you’ve definitely come to the right place!

What makes a great tasting beer all comes down to the quality of ingredients used. A cheaper, poorer quality of brew will use less expensive hops in the brewing process and will use a cheaper method of fermentation, processing and even packaging. A higher quality beer will use prime processes of malting, milling, mashing, boiling, fermenting, filtering, conditioning and packaging the product, resulting in a smoother tasting premium beer. The basic components of beer include a source of starch, such as malted barley, which is fermented and converted into alcohol, a brewer’s yeast that aids in the fermentation process and a flavoring agent, such as hops.

This list discusses the best party beers, including: Morland Old Speckled Hen, Guinness Special Export Stout, Boddington's Draught and Budweiser Select. Vote for your favorite brew today!
