Every individual that travels around the world (even those who limit their travels to the USA) know what to drink when they arrive at a location. Many seasoned travelers avoid big cities and opt for medium and small towns because they have a lot to offer.
Beer hunt – A hobby for beer lovers
A percentage of travelers choose ale as their ultimate goal of any journey, and thus they seek places that have excellent ale production. Beer hunters look for new breweries and their products. They are interested in everything from the production process, ingredients to taste and the look.
Now, if you think about Budweiser when someone starts the talk about good lager, then you know nothing about the beverage. People who travel far, to taste the beverage, aren’t looking for mainstream ale manufacturers because the quality of their products is the lowest in the whole industry. They are on the lookout for small brewers who either sell their products in a limited number of local shops and those that don’t sell their products in any shops (only private sales).
Why are people looking for local beer crafters?
Many of you that drink ale in coffee bars and clubs might wonder why people go to this extent to try another brand of ale. The most straightforward answer to the question many of you ask is because the craft beer is better than mass-produced ales.
A small beer crafter doesn’t have to worry about percentages of the sales and salaries of hundreds of people that work for them. Their only worry is how to improve their product. They are willing to invest their hard-earned cash in experimenting with new ingredients to find a mixture that will improve their ale.
Local beer crafting is somewhat popular if you compare it to several years ago. Just go online and look for breweries near my location, and you will find at least several local brewers. You can also go to proper pubs and ask about small brewers, as some of them don’t advertise anywhere. Go out there and try craft beer and only then will you realize how bad the commercial beverage is.
