I'm not a brewer, but I have sampled the results from time to time
(to time, ... ).

I'd say there's "functional beers" like EKU 28 or Samir Clause (forgive
the poor spelling).  (Function being to feel the affects quickly).

Other functional beers are, say Bud, Bud Lite, Old Milwaukee.  Function
being it's wet and you're thirsty.  Technically, they're still beers, but
there's nothing fancy or even tasty about them.

Then there's beers that could be called "ceremonial" in that they are
brewed for a unique or different flavor.  For example, a berry weiss or
other flavored beers.  Or all the quality flavors in between a Bud and
a dopplebock.
