Would you be willing to mess around with centuries of brewing history? Craft brewers are creating a new future for beer.
Because of the focus on innovation, investment and personal (rather than mechanised) involvement in the brewing process, expect to pay a bit more for your craft beers. But for a taste sensation that’s beyond the everyday, it’s money well spent.
Craft Beer History
Remember the term ‘micro brewery’? Small, independent breweries developing their own particular styles of beer, maybe based on olde worlde methods lost during modernisation, or focussing on new methods or flavours unique to the producers’ personal approach? Well basically that’s Craft Beer today. It’s all in the semantics, but the micro breweries or boutique beers of old now involve a more approachable attribute of skilled craftsmanship rather than the more marginalised ‘micro’ or ‘boutique’ sense of exclusivity.
Popular Australian Craft Beer Brands
So where are Australia’s craft beers produced? Pretty much everywhere is the very satisfying answer. Name a State or Territory and they’ve all got their own craft beer breweries, some just a little better known than others.
Craft Beer Flavours
Ah, well. This is where it gets tricky, indeed nigh on impossible to categorise – which of course is the beauty of craft beer. Each brewer strives for unique characteristics and flavours that make it stand apart from the crowd, and so by definition there is no one flavour for craft beer other than that they all taste of beer.
