Over the past few years, craft beer has been making its way into the spotlight when it comes to alcohol consumption. If you go to your local grocery store, the beer aisle is packed with tons of different craft beer brands, all with the same goal in mind: to get you to drink it.
So what is so special about craft beer? Well, aside from the colorful packaging and fun-shaped bottles, craft beer actually has many benefits.
- Seasonal Beers: Most craft breweries are known to put out seasonal/themed beers at certain times of the year. It’s fun to look forward to your favorites each year, plus, a different beer flavor for different times of the year keeps things interesting!
- Better Taste: Craft beers are made with fresh ingredients and are brewed to perfection to ensure that each batch tastes just as good as the last. Since such love and care goes into brewing, you can expect craft beers to just taste better than big name brands.
- Higher Alcohol by Volume (ABV): Craft beers tend to have a higher alcohol content than regular beers. Most craft beers have an ABV between 6% and 10%, sometimes even more!
- Health Benefits: Just like a glass of red wine a day is known to have its health benefits, craft beer is just the same with a high content of antioxidants, nutrients, soluble fiber, and B vitamins.
