Have you had enough of sipping the tasteless watery beers of the giant corporates? Then it’s high time you made the switch into the craft brewers’ community! Compared with the giant corporates, these little local breweries place a focus on quality rather than quantity, and as such, are capable of delivering so much more than your usual corporates. Find out what are the advantages of drinking from a craft brewery below!
• It tastes way better – the first and foremost point: Australia craft beer tastes better. The reason behind this is obvious – as we have mentioned before, the craft brewers pay attention to quality and detail over money and quantity, and as such, it is no surprising matter that the beer they serve is much better. To get more into detail, let us first the principal ingredients of any beer: water, yeast, hops and grains. You can’t be exactly sure of the quality the large scale corporations and business use when brewing their beers, but you can rest assured that the craft breweries use fresh, organic and high quality ingredients. And voilà, the taste is so much better.
• It has a higher alcohol percentage – craft breweries do not consider money when brewing their beers (or at the very least, it is not in their top priorities) – they are driven by a passion for beer. As such, you won’t find any craft brewer who will be stingy with alcohol percentages or mix more water into their concoctions. These beers will usually have an alcohol percentage of five to ten percent, but the best craft beers can even have percentages of thirty or forty percent! On the other hand, the mass produced beers usually have an alcohol percentage of one to five percent.
• It’s healthy – studies have shown that compared to the mass produced beers, beers brewed by the craft breweries are much more healthy. The reason why? We would have to backtrack to why these beers also taste much better – the healthy and organic ingredients. There have been many researches and studies on the health benefits of wine, but do you know that the beer of these craft breweries has been found to be even healthier than red wine? It has plenty of vitamin B and antioxidants, as well as is a rich source of silicon.
• You support the local community – and last but not least, you will support the local breweries, instead of the multinational corporations and whatnot. And trust me, that’s a very big plus – not only are you contributing to the local economy, but you are also helping a fellow countryman. Plus, you will also get to know the local beer-loving community, and who wouldn’t appreciate that?
