In fantasy fiction, whenever a character is drinking beer, the beer will always be an ale rather than a lager. You can [[http://www.annarbor.com/entertainment/food-drink/a-lesson-in-beer-ales-vs-lagers/ read about the difference elsewhere]].

Many fantasy tropes [[FollowTheLeader are taken from]] the very, very, British ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', and the vast majority of British beers actually are ales--again, lager is a German invention, and it wasn't until relatively recently that lager spread outside Germany, broader Central Europe and the Americas (where German and other Central European brewers settled in the 19th century--why do you think all of the Americas from Argentina and Chile to Canada and Alaska drink lager?).

* In ''TheSimsMedieval'' the default brewing recipe you can make without ingredients is "Ale." A few other varieties of Ale become available if you ''have'' ingredients, but they're all still ale.

* Averted in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Durkon drinks a lot of beer, not specifically ale. And at one point he complains that he hasn't had a decent lager since he left his home in the dwarf lands.

* [[LampShading Lampshaded]] in the Discworld novel ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'', which notes that "Ankh-Morpork beer was technically ale, that is to say, gravy made from hops", in the context of explaining why Rincewind doesn't take the light, fizzy stuff they have in Fourecks seriously... until he wakes up with little memory of the previous evening.

* Before the invention of the refrigeration, bottom fermentation (with which beers like lager or bock is made) was notoriously difficult to perform, and will succeed only in certain months during the autumn and winter when it is cold enough for ''Saccaromyces carlsbergi'' yeast to function. On the other hand, top fermentation (with which ales are made) will succeed at any temperature, using ''Saccaromyces cerevisiae'' yeast. The usual naming convention is that ''beer'' refers to bottom fermented brews like lager, bock and pilsener, while ''ale'' refers to top fermented brews, such as bitter, stout and pale ale.

Also, modern efficient methods of refrigeration were first developed in the 1870s by the engineer Carl von Linde for Gabriel Sedlmayr's Spaten Brewery, who was trying to find a way to make lager year-round.
