'''Hybrid''' is a term used by some to describe beers and beer styles that cannot be neatly categorized as an [[ale]] or a [[lager]].  This includes beers whose fermentation includes elements from both the ale and lager tradition.  For example:
 +
 
 +
*[[Steam Beer]] and [[Cream Ale]] were historically brewed with lager yeast, but fermented at ale temperatures
 +
*[[Australian Sparkling Ale]] and many styles of [[Altbier]] are top-fermented, then lagered for long periods
 +
 
 +
The term is not generally used to describe beers brewed with yeast that is neither an ale nor a lager yeast, such as, for example, [[Weizen]] (brewed with distinctive yeast strains of its own) or [[sour beer styles]] incorporating [[wild yeast]] and [[bacteria]].
