I am looking for different beer types in Esperanto.

I have looked in the Lernu Vortaro, Reta Vortaro, Wiktionary and Wikipedia, but I only found a few, like ale which is elo and IPA which is hinda hela elo.

Does anybody know how to say any of the following?

  • stout
  • lager
  • saison
  • trappist

These words are all internationalisms, so you only have to decide whether to respell them (to make them easier to say) or leave them (to make them easier to recognize in reading).

  • staŭto or stout-biero or fortportero
  • lagero or lagerbiero
  • saisono or sezonbiero
  • trapista biero or trapistbiero

If it's obvious in context that you're talking about beer then you don't have to add biero all the time, e.g. Koncerne la trinkaĵojn, mi elektis staŭton kaj mia amiko elektis trapistan.

  • Could you clarify what you mean by "internationalism"? Commented Nov 12, 2016 at 18:43
  • Vortoj fremdaj (Rule 15), not in the Universala Vortaro, which many diverse languages have taken from one source, most likely to be recognised in a form close to the original. Commented Nov 13, 2016 at 2:42
