Why is Craft Beer Better?
We are dedicated to serving beers with higher quality, fresher, and local ingredients. We guarantee you never have to question what is in our beers, unlike macro beers which sometimes use additives such as corn syrup, caramel coloring, and propylene glycol alginate. Besides the hands-down higher quality craft beer has over macro beers, they also take the cake for variety. There is more selection, more styles, and more love that goes into creating crafts beers than any ‘big beer’. Just think about how many styles macro brewers like Anheiser-Busch and Miller-Coors make versus any craft brewer. Check out our ‘Beers’ page right now and we’ll more than likely have over ten different craft brews available at this moment, to suit any mood or any food. There’s a different flavor for everyone!
Craft Beer Vocabulary
A session beer will usually have less alcohol than others, falling below the 5% ABV mark. The lower alcohol level means the beer will have a thinner body, making them great for drinking several in a row, if that is what you are looking for.
Double / Imperial
These types are IPAs with a higher concentration of hops. In order to balance the strong hop flavor, the brewer will use more malt. This higher usage of malt will land the beer at a higher percentage of ABV, usually over 7% so go easy on these types!
Rather than adding the hops in while the liquid is boiling, dry hopping is a process of steeping hops in the fermenting beer. This creates an extremely strong aroma making the fruity/piney/candy-sweet notes of the hops very noticeable. If you like a very full tasting beer with a strong flavor, a dry hopped beer will make a great option.
Most beers are created with many different types of hops, used just like you would seasonings to flavor up your meal, to create a nice amalgamation of flavors in your beer. On the other hand, a single-hopped IPA is brewed with just one type of hop. If you love having a single strong flavor in your beer, single hopped is what you should be looking for!
Fresh hopped IPAs are available only once a year during the peak of hop harvesting season between late August and September. In order to qualify as a fresh hopped IPA, the hops have to leave the vine, travel to the brewery, and end up in the boil in under 24 hours. This makes for a truly fresh and capturing flavor, even more so the closer to the brew date you drink it.
