The craft beer market has exploded in recent years and it’s not hard to tell why! In addition to the health benefits, here are three reasons why you should be drinking craft beer this weekend:
- Better Taste
The first and best reason you should drink craft beer – it simply tastes better! Because craft beer is generally brewed in smaller batches, the beer can often have quirky ingredients that appeal to each person’s individual taste buds. Compared to mass-marketed beer, the list of ingredients and choices at a craft brewery are virtually endless!
- Support your Local Economy
Not only do most craft breweries sell exclusively in their geographical region, but they also usually incorporate local flavors and ingredients into their craft beer. Not only does this mean that you are supporting your local economy when you buy craft beer, but you also have the opportunity to go meet the people that are making your beer!
- More Alcohol!
Compared to mass-market domestic beer (which usually has an ABV around 3-5 percent), craft beer usually has more alcohol with an average ABV of 6 percent. Some craft beers can reach up to 20 and even 30 percent ABV. This means that you can spend less money when you go out with your friends and still have a great time!
