Pasteurization is a process that heats a liquid—such as beer—to a temperature that kills off bacteria and dangerous microbes. That is around 212°F (100°C). Many brewers have used pasteurization as a means of stabilizing and sterilizing their brews without needing to change the beer.
Most beers, regardless if they are filtered or unfiltered, pasteurized or unpasteurized, have been sterilized. When comparing pasteurized vs unpasteurized beer flavor, people often say the latter is ambrosial.
