Cheers to you, Aries! As the bold and dynamic leader of the zodiac, you're always looking to make a statement and keep the good times rolling. If there's a party happening, you're there to add personality. A porter, with its rich and complex flavor profile, is a perfect match for your larger-than-life personality.
"Porter is the best pick for Aries, due to its burnt flavor that aligns well with the rambunctious and tenacious fire sign," says Stardust. This delicious brew was one of the first to be produced and brewed globally, making it just as much of a trailblazer as you.
Taurus: Brown Ale
Unbothered by the fast-paced world around them, Taurus prefers to savor the little moments. You're the type who calmly and deliberately builds the life of your dreams, collecting quality experiences along the way. And after a long day of working hard, you like to unwind with a treat.
A brown ale, with its toasty and caramel-like finish, is the perfect decadent beer for you to sip over a nice conversation with friends. "Brown ales have a silky and sweet finish, which is ideal for Taurus because they have an indulgent sweet tooth," Stardust shares.

Gemini: Pale Ale
Geminis are incredibly extroverted and social, which makes it easy for you to adapt to any situation. You like variety in life and aren't content sticking to the status quo. A pale ale comes in various flavors, so you can always find something that suits your current mood (perfect for the zodiac's most indecisive sign).
"Pale ale can actually be a dualistic type of beer due to its copper color and fruity taste that can trick the drinker into not expecting the flavor," says Stardust. You'll appreciate how it keeps you on your toes.
Cancer: Fruit Beer
Cancer has the biggest sweet tooth of the zodiac, and your drink preferences are no exception. Your personality feels like a warm hug, so you need a beer that brings a similar feeling to your taste buds. Fruit beers are beloved for being sweet and refreshing—much like you.
"Fruit beer is the ultimate summer beer–and makes a perfect drink for Cancers to celebrate their summer birthdays with," says Stardust. "Fruit beer comes in so many different flavor combinations and has that light effervescent feeling that Cancers love."

If life is a party, you're dancing on the table asking the DJ to turn the music up. Nothing stops a Leo from having a good time. And when it comes to a night out, you like a drink that is just as fun-loving and bold. A Saison beer, with its punchy and aromatic flavors, will do the trick.
"Saison is French beer that has a lot of spices and carbonation in it—like the lion who's known for their hot sparky nature," says Stardust. The deep flavors make a Saison hard to ignore, and you'll find yourself emboldened by its spicy kick.
Virgo: Wheat Beer
You're a lover of the classics, Virgo. Once you find your favorites you tend to stick with them. And as the sign with a perfectionist streak, you prefer a simplistic flavor profile that can stand on its own. That's why the humble but ever-popular wheat beer should be your go-to.
"Wheat beer is ideal for Virgo. Just like the earth sign, it's easygoing and has a relaxed finish that will make everyone want more," says Stardust.

Let's be honest, Libra, you're more of a champagne person. But the balance you enjoy in the bubbly (after all, you are the sign symbolized and ruled by the scales) can also be found in a beer. A seasonal Oktoberfest brew, which is technically a pilsner, is equal parts bold and smooth, which suits your sophisticated personality perfectly.
"The best beer for Libra is Oktoberfest because it's full-bodied and only drunk in October, at the height of Libra season," says Stardust. And since you're a social butterfly, enjoying this brew gives you an excuse to head out to the beer garden.
There's nothing mild about the personality of a Scorpio. As the passionate and complex zodiac sign, you seek out experiences that allow you to get deep with others. And while you might be a bit hard to read at first, you're one of the most loyal people once someone has earned your trust. Stout beer, with its equally complex flavor profile, should therefore become a regular in your drink rotation.
"Stout has a more bitter taste, which is what any Scorpio will enjoy because they are an oceanic animal who enjoys saltier flavors," Stardust shares. This bold flavor isn't for the faint of heart, much like you.

Sagittarius: Irish Red Ale
As the adventurer of the zodiac, it's likely that you've already tried a number of the beers on this list during your escapades. You're always looking for something new, so you like to find international brews and experimental blends.
"Irish red ale is a contemporary classic that blends the best of European IPAs with American pale ales. The brewing process is a little complicated, which will fascinate Sagittarius's curious mind," says Stardust. "Not to mention, the flavor packs so much punch in just a single sip, making it the perfect companion as you make new friends on your travels."
Capricorn: Barley Wine
As the mature and responsible sign of the zodiac, Capricorn needs a drink with the same old-fashioned tasting notes. Your confident, direct, and intense aura may come off as a bit intimidating, but you like to have fun just as much as you work hard. So, the next time you're ready to unwind, consider a barley wine.
"Due to its historical nature, barley wine is perfect for Capricorn who likes to uphold and try out traditional fare and old recipes," says Stardust. Plus, it packs a pretty punch, so you'll only need one or two to get the night going.

Aquarius: Belgian Ale
There's nothing predictable about eccentric and rebellious Aquarians. As an intellectual air sign, you like to keep your options open and are always looking to experiment and expand your horizons. The next time you're out for drinks, try switching things up by ordering a Belgian ale.
"Belgian ales are light and airy, which is how most would describe Aquarius—with a little bit of orange zest for spiciness on the side," Stardust shares.
Pisces: Bock Beer
People often categorize you as dreamy and lost in space, Pisces. However, you have deep layers under the surface of the water that would surprise even your closest friends. As the sign ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusions and spirituality, you're always shifting and evolving as you go through life.
"Like Pisces, bock beer has a wide range of qualities and flavors that make every sip extra special," Stardust says. The dark German lager is bold and malty but has surprisingly light undertones.
