Top 5 Reasons You Should Drink Craft Beer

All beer is the same, right? Wrong.

Craft beer often features unique labels, eccentric descriptions and inventive ingredients.  From local bars to Major League baseball stadiums, craft beer has taken over taps across America. 

And in honor of all those tasty craft beers produced by your favorite microbreweries everywhere, that are prominently featured at Just Tap’d, they’d like to give you 5 reasons why you should drink more craft beer, instead of those mass-produced light beers that your parents drank.

1.  It Tastes Better

Brewmasters are the scientists of beer, focusing their time and knowledge on perfecting recipes using high end ingredients. If it tastes better, it obviously is better – at least in the beer world!

2.  Health Benefits

Research has proven that craft beer is actually better for you than red wine. For starters, it contains more nutrients, fiber, and a range of antioxidants. Additionally, craft beer is one of the few dietary sources of silicon, which can help prevent osteoporosis (even NPR agrees!).

3.  More Choices

There are just over 5,000 craft breweries in the United States! That being said, each one produces an array of choices for your pallet – from stouts, IPAs, sours to porters… the options are endless. Seasonal beers are a big hit in the craft beer world as well! Whether you want that fruity summer pale ale or a warm winter spice, craft beer has got you covered.

4.  Community

One of the most unique things that craft beer offers is the ability to visit your favorite brewery. With tour offerings, sample tastings, and the chance to meet the brewer behind the magic – the loyalty to the brand and the beer only grows stronger. Fun fact: the majority of Americans live within 10 miles of a craft brewery!

5.  More Alcohol

Craft beer comes in all shapes and sizes, but one things holds true: high ABV. Most craft beers range from 5-10% ABV as opposed to the average 3-5% ABV in mass produced beer. However, some reach even higher, packing more value in every sip!
