Those of us who enjoy the finer things in life know that nothing quite beats the taste and quality of a craft beer. If you weren’t already sold on the idea of ditching your cheap canned beer and upgrading to craft, we’ve got 10 reasons that are sure to convert you!
First things first, craft beer tastes better. It isn’t mass produced and breweries spend time focused on quality rather than how much they’re selling how quickly.
Next up, craft beers are often much stronger than other beers. They range from about 5-10% abv but some reach as high as 30 or 40%!
Do you find yourself taking numerous trips to the bathroom when you drink typical beers? Craft beers won’t do that. You aren’t drinking nearly as many beers as you’ll want to savor the taste and will feel the effects of the alcohol more quickly.
Craft beer also has more health benefits. They’re often packed with antioxidants and have soluble fiber as well as some B vitamins. In fact, craft beer is shown to be healthier than red wine.
Craft breweries specialize in creating flavor profiles that are unique and most of them work on coming up with new flavors regularly, which means you have far more options. A lot of times, they focus on fruits that are seasonal and source ingredients that are local.
If you’re drinking craft, you’re likely spending far less money and consuming far fewer calories. You won’t want to simply drink your beers quickly and pop open another. They’re more robust than mass-produced beers, meaning you’ll drink fewer per sitting.
One of the greatest things about these beers is the ability to know who actually made them. Meeting your brewer and knowing what inspired the flavors, the bottle, and the art on it all make the drinking experience much more enjoyable.
