No, it isn’t a style of beer made out of furniture. Nor is it even a style, really. Like many beers of the past, it has gone through several incarnations at different times and in different places. But it began as a tax classification. Table Beer is the English translation of the Belgian concept of tafelbier (French: bière de table). Although this seems to imply that they are equivalent to “table wine,” this is not the particularly the case. Table beers are invariably low in alcohol—typically between 1% and 2.5% by volume— although a few nudge up to 3.5%. Their color ranges from light blonde to jet black and all shades of amber and brown in between. Most but not all are sweet, some intensely so. Hopping is low to middling.
