Look to the stars for your best beer match

Hot chili and cold beer are made for each other

Beeroscope: It’s your horoscope, but with beer! We analyzed the 12 zodiac signs’ key traits, taking into account the four elements — fire, earth, air and water — and paired each one up with an equally complex and distinctive beer type. The result? A perfectly matched sip that can balance, compete with or hold its own against your astrological attributes.

We used sun signs to determine your ideal brew. Why? These reflect the position the sun was in when you were born and play a heavy hand in your personality (your sun sign basically reflects who you are at your core).

Just use your birthday to find your sign. If your DOB lands on either the beginning or ending date of the range, you’re considered on the cusp. That’s not a bad thing; it just means that you could relate to either or both signs around your birthday.

The stars and malts have spoken, so scroll down to see which suds are your best match.

Capricorn & Lager

December 22nd to January 19th

Caps are born with more wisdom than most. They work hard, are great with money and expect the same can-do profile from their suds. A reliable, clean-tasting lager is what they reach for.

Aquarius & Saison

January 20th to February 18th

Being an air sign, an Aquarian will reach for a sip with a similarly bubbly profile. Something with higher carbonation, like a saison, is a little sweet, palatable, nice to be around and matches Aquarius’s laid-back vibe.

Pisces & Honey Lager

February 19th to March 20th

Totally in tune with their feelings, Pisces are sweet and highly empathetic. Smooth honey-infused lagers are similar, making them the perfect pour for this water sign. It’s the ideal thing to sip during a favourite Pisces pastime: listening to friends unpack all their feelings.

Aries & Sour Beer

March 21st to April 19th

Aries are the life of the party and known to jump headfirst into any situation. Going for it with an adventurous sour brew is a no-brainer for them. It’s a bit tart, a bit acidic and lots of fun.

Taurus & Porter

April 20th to May 20th

Notoriously food-driven, the bulls of the zodiac are discerning when it comes to beer and food pairings. Because of that, a Taurus wants something that will nicely accompany their latest culinary creation. Thats’s where mild but richly flavoured porter comes in.

Gemini & Wheat Beer

May 21st to June 20th

Geminis are represented by twins, and they’re often complex. That’s why they need a beer that understands their double-sided mentality. With notes that are both fruity and spicy, a wheat beer is satisfying in more ways than one.

Cancer & Regular Ale

June 21st to July 22nd

Ale is an old-timey brew, which is perfect for the ever-nostalgic Cancer. As homebodies who focus on the people they love, Cancers find comfort in the tried and true. Plus, the hoppy aroma of ales trigger Cancers’ love of nostalgia.

Leo & Amber Ale

July 23rd to August 22nd

Very confident and enthusiastic, Leos pack a lot of personality. An amber ale is known to balance spicy flavours, which is perfect, since Leos run hot and need a beer to complement – but not overpower – their prowess.

Virgo & Shandy

August 23rd to September 22nd

Hard-working, loyal and sweet, Virgos know what they like and stick to it. A classic shandy is Virgo’s perfect match. It’s citrusy, refreshing and a nice way to cool down after a long day of being responsible, which is Virgo’s love language.

Libra & Pilsner

September 23rd to October 22nd

Libras love balance and want things to be on an even keel. They’ll love a go-with-the-flow brew, which makes pilsner an easy pick. It’s crisp and bitter, but not too dry, ready to please and happy to do it.

Scorpio & Stout

October 23rd to November 21st

Dark and brooding Scorpios naturally seek something similar in their drink of choice. A stout might come off as moody, but when you get down to it, it’s actually kind of sweet. Just like a Scorpio.

Sagittarius & IPA

November 22nd to December 21st

India pale ales (IPAs) pack a wide spectrum of flavour notes, from citrusy and fruity to floral and piney. A Sag is similar – they don’t like being contained within a set profile. Both are well liked and come with a teeny bit of bitterness, but that’s what we love about them.
