What is Craft Beer?
Per craftbeer.com, it’s tough to define craft beer since it’s such a subjective, unique experience. However, The Brewer’s Association shed some light on what an American craft brewery is. There are three kinds: small, independent, and brewer.
What Makes Craft Beer Stand Out?
If you think that craft beer is the same as all other beers, think again. There are many differences between the two. Here are some of them.
- Craft beer has many colors depending on the brewing process it underwent. On the other hand, regular beer usually has a pale color – most of the time, yellowish color.
- Craft beer is handcrafted, hence the name. Brewers personally pick the best ingredients that are specific for whichever flavor they are producing. In comparison, regular beer would usually consist of more inexpensive ingredients to make them marketable.
- Craft beer is creative and has a sharp, distinct taste. Regular beers taste the same majority of the time.
