For die-hard beer lovers, beer is the elixir of life. And why not? After all, there is so much to love about this drink that we sometimes wonder, was it really invented by a human or a divine power descended to Earth to hand over the secret recipe of happiness in a bottle to humankind. Though there are different types of beers in the market today, none are as pure as craft beer. Big mechanized breweries produce just beer, whereas, craft breweries, brew magic. Craft brewing is as much a science as an art, that has been passed down from one generation to another for centuries. Why is it that craft beer has still not lost its charm? We attempt to answer this question.
1. Great Taste
When it comes to taste, craft beer has no competition. No matter how hard corporates, who know nothing about the fine art of brewing, try to market their product as the best tasting beer, deep down they know their beer does not stand a chance. There is one big difference between the way craft beer and mass-produced beer is brewed. While businesses pour in money into their beer manufacturing processes, craft brewers pour their hearts and souls into brewing beer. Additionally, every craft brewer uses secret ingredients and processes that have been passed on to them by their forefathers.
2. Craft Beer and Good Food: A Match Made in Heaven
What’s better than having just craft beer? Having craft beer with your favorite food. Slowly, but steadily, craft beer is replacing wine as the drink of choice when dining. Craft beer is not just wooing dining connoisseurs, but also making appearances in social events. Craft beer and cheese parties are now a thing.
3. Range of Choices
Craft beer gives the phrase ‘variety is the spice of life’ a new meaning. There are more than 1,600 breweries in the country that use different ingredients. There is no single best way to brew craft beer, and brewers know this. Every brewer adds their touch (can be a unique process or a special ingredient) to their beer, which means the beer lover in you will always have something to look forward to.
