How to understand IBU Ratings

Many people dont truly understand how to identify a bitterness rating because there is no point of reference. That is until now!

If you see a rating for IBUs on a craft beer menu or online, it stands for International Bitterness Unit. This is the standard that most beers bitterness are guaged. These numbers can be very confusing without a reference point. Most charts online show you a style of beers bitterness unit. There are so many different style to keep track that it is hard to remember where each one should go.

To help with this problem, FortWorthBeer has created a scale of popular craft beers that most beer drinkers should have already had in order to remember the taste and understand how bitter a beer is.
