Types of beer? Are stout and porter ales or lagers? AFAIK neither. And there's lambic too and.. IPA? Also wheatbeer.. is that counted as what? Kriek? And that without drinking beer at all.

Why did the barmaid sham pain? Because the stout porter bit her. (Taken from Beckett's novel "Murphy"; the woman to whom Murphy tells the joke does not find it funny, so you're in good company if you didn't either, I suppose.)

I can now say I know more about beer than I ever wanted to. I don't drink (and not by choice), so I went looking for an explanation of different types of beer. There's a ton of info out there, but it seems that there really are just 2 types of beer; ales and lagers. Your stouts and porters fall under ales (dark ales specifically). The IPAs...pale ales. Lambic put me through hell and back, but it would classify as an ale because the yeast that is used is a top fermenting yeast. Basically two "types" of beer, but many "styles" of beer.

"Basically two "types" of beer, but many "styles" of beer." That's about as good of a summary as it gets. There's a pretty good popular science article about the differences in the yeasts for each: http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2013-01/beersci-what-difference-between-lager-and-ale

Yes, this classification seems very anglo-centric to me. In Germany, one could classify beer in top and bottom fermented. Top-fermenting beers contain Ales, but also Wheat beer, Dampfbier, Gose, Berliner Weiße, Kölsch and Alt (probably still missing some). Bottom-fermenting include Lagers, but also Pilsner and Export. This still is not a clear distinction, as Kölsch and Alt are top fermented but cold finished.

It's a very clear classification, dependent upon the species of yeast used. Ales ferment with the "top-fermenting" species Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Styles of beers brewed with strains of this yeast include ales, stouts and porters, gose, witbier, etc. Lagers ferment with the "bottom-fermenting" species Saccharomyces uvarum. Styles of beers brewed with strains of these yeast include pilsners, bocks, Helles, Dortmunders, etc. There are beers featuring yeast of the genus Brettanomyces in addition to or in replacement of S. cerevisiae, but as they're usually brewed at the same temperature range as ales, it's typical to classify these as ales, too.

There are only two types of beer based upon the species (and thus conditions) of the yeast that perform the fermentation. There are many styles of ales (e.g., stouts, porters, pale ales, IPAs, witbier, etc.), and there are many styles of lagers (e.g., pilsners, bocks, hellas, schwarzbier, märzen, etc.). However, styles are variations on the type.

I tried that too. But I think the question should be removed all together. Like the statement that starts: there are two types of people in this world... which ends in about a thousand different variations. Breaking out Jews into two categories without any other description is just wrong. While on my soap box... - "Types of beer" is too generic to determine what you're looking for (first thought: domestic, imported; second thought: traditional and craft) - There are other English cities that are "upon" a river in their official names. None of the ones I tried worked, but should have given your description.

Should accept "Mizrahi" for sephardic. most of these jews don't use the term sephardic because linguistically that refers to jews who trace their lineage to medieval spain. Sephardic is used by people outside of that community because spain was the culturally dominant force in that line of tradition, but mizrahi is the preferred nomenclature.

You should not confuse the lack of separation of state and church with outright theocracy. The latter is a system of government where secular rule is officially entrusted to religious bodies and executed by people who reign by virtue of holding ecclesiastical posts (such as the Pope or the Ajatollah). Brunei on the other hand is a hereditary absolutist monarchy whose rulers simply chose to implement religious law as a part of civil law code, but their power to do so is not derived from any religious function thee rulers hold.

According to Wikipedia: From the state's establishment in 1948, Standard Arabic was a co-official alongside Hebrew; this changed with the passing of the Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People in 2018. Its status is currently that of an auxiliary language and its use in government documents and in the public sphere is still mandated by law. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_language_in_Israel
