Beer and Occasion: After-dinner

An after-dinner drink, or digestif, has its origin in the belief that an alcoholic drink taken right after the meal will help digestion. These drinks are usually stronger and with more body than an aperitif. Post-prandial beers should be lightly carbonated and light to medium-bodied, with just enough presence to fill the nooks and crannies of a well-fed stomach.
