Default Types of beer

Is there a publication or website that describes the different types of beer. I know the difference between a lager and an ale, but that's about it. If I had a brief description of each beer, it would make it easier to look up recipes.

BJCP is definitely a good place to start. Let us know if you have any questions! The best way to learn about beer is to go out there and drink it. The BJCP style guide has a list at the end of each sub-style that lists commercial examples of that style, so if you find a style that sounds interesting, go out there and try one of the beers on that list1
