Why craft beer? Well here are three major reasons;
1) CRAFT BEER TASTES BETTER! By definition, Craft Breweries are small, independent and traditional. For that reason alone the quality of product going into the beers is much better than mass produced product. Craft beer tastes much better because craft brewers spend their time focusing on the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices. Craft brewers put their heart and soul, as well as lots of amazing ingredients, into every beer they brew and don’t cut any corners. Riley’s Brewing Co. out of Madera features a dark wheat brew called Vixen, a complex rich and malty ale, with a hint of roasted mocha. They use specialty grains to make this a pleasant and easy drinking out of the ordinary beer.
2) MORE ALCOHOL! 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! Less water in your brews means that you don’t need to drink as much beer. Less calories and no more bloated bellies!
3) HEALTH BENEFITS! Craft beer actually has health benefits. Research has shown that craft beer has more health benefits and more nutrients than red wine. Craft beer contains some soluble fiber, B vitamins, a range of antioxidants and it is also the richest source of silicon; silicon in the diet may help in countering osteoporosis.
