There Is More to Whiskey Than Just Drinking It

I have always loved a good glass of whiskey. However, I did not know how it was made or why one whiskey often tasted so different from another. One day, my brother asked me if I wanted to take a tour of a local whiskey brewery with him. I was amazed at what went into creating whiskey and we learned a lot about the history of whiskey from our tour guide. I was so intrigued by whiskey that I decided to continue learning about it on my own. I look forward to sharing this new knowledge on my blog. I have also learned a lot about other spirits during my research, such as vodka, gin, and bourbon, so look forward to a wide variety of posts about various alcoholic beverages!

A Look At The Perks Of Always Asking For A Local Craft Beer At Restaurants

How many times have you stopped in at a restaurant, ordered your food, and then struggled to find the best beer on the menu? Many restaurants offer a full selection of brews for their customers to pick from, but there is one type of beer on most menus that you really should give a shot: local craft beer. Local craft beer is a beer that was brewed by smaller breweries, and many restaurants will add a few of these to their menu to support these nearby breweries. Take a look at some of the reasons you should try a local brew when you stop at restaurants in different cities. 

Local beer brews can vary greatly from place to place. 

As it is with most foods and drinks, flavor preferences can vary and so can the ingredients used to craft beer. For example, in an area that grows a lot of wheat, you may find a lot of wheat-based beers, but in an area known for some other crop, such as barley, local craft beer may be barley-based. By trying a beer in multiple cities that have been locally brewed, you are going to get to experience a broad range of brew flavors.

Local breweries have a keen focus on the quality of every batch. 

Of course, the big-name beer brands are going to have to be made to quality standards, but they often brew batches so large that it is easy to lose sight of certain attributes. Local breweries utilize smaller brewing systems and create beers in smaller batches. This means every batch is carefully tended to and handled, and the flavor quality usually shows this fact well. Some of the best beer out there are those which started out in localized breweries, and many of these places have maintained their small-batch setup simply because it makes better beer. 

Local beer can help you get to know the personality of the area. 

It sounds a little quirky, but this statement is often true. When you see what kind of beer the locals make and prefer, it can help you get familiar with the personality of the area. For instance, if you find a funky blend of craft beer incorporated with hemp, you can gather that the locals are keen on natural elements and a laid-back sort of style. Not to mention, ordering up a craft beer from a local brewery is a good way to get a conversation started with a local. 

Contact a brewery like Fruition Brewing to learn more about local craft beer.
