Craft Beer Tastes Better
There will be a number of you out there stating that this cannot be true, however, we really do think it adds a more unique and rich taste. The mass produced and mass marketed big beer companies can't control each batch and you get a slightly different taste with each one. Craft beer tastes much better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices.
Craft beers come in many shapes and sizes, but one thing remains the same; they all pack a punch! Most craft beers range from 5-10% abv (alcohol by volume), but some craft beers can reach 20%, 30%, and even 40% abv! Compared to most mass produced beers this swamps most of the competition. This means you don't have to have as many to get yourself feeling merry.
Fewer Trips to the Bathroom
When you drink craft beer you won’t have to pee every 10 minutes because you won’t drink as many beers. If, however, you were drinking stronger, full-flavored craft beers with 5-8% abv there is no need to drink beer after beer after beer. If you drink only one or two delicious craft beers you will get the effect of 4-6 “beer waters” and you won’t have to worry about your bladder exploding every 10 minutes.
You read that right! Craft beer has health benefits. As well as packing a punch with its alcohol content, because of the nature in which it is brewed and the careful way in which it is produced, you get a bunch of vitamins and essentials that your body needs! However, don't rely on craft beers to get that beach body you're after.
Did you know that you probably live within 10 miles of a craft brewery? Every day in the UK small independent breweries are popping up and producing some of the best craft beer in the country. The relatively straightforward nature of setting up gives you plenty more to choose from when you do head for a weekend tipple.
The cost per drinking session can be much lower if you drink craft beer. This ties in with several other points, in the fact that you don't need to drink half as much with craft beers than you do with mass produced lagers etc. You can simply sip away at your delicious craft beer and ponder how you are going to spend the rest of your money.
With all this in mind, isn't it about time you were converted to the craft beer way of life?
