What exactly is craft beer?

Literally-craft beer,beer made by hand. This is much simpler and easier to understand, and the word can better reflect the ingenuity of the brewer-adhere to the traditional high requirements for taste, adhere to the raw materials, and inherit the traditional winemaking spirit.


The definitive explanation -- The Brewers Association (BA) defines craft beer as:

The annual output is less than 6 million BBL

Independence: Not subject to excessive holdings by large breweries.

Tradition and innovation: Adhere to the control of raw materials, inherit traditional brewing techniques, and continue to experiment with innovative flavors.



The ingredients are pure-craft beer ingredients are: water, malt, hops, yeast.

Some craft beer will also be added with other auxiliary materials, such as fruits, spices, etc. In addition, there should be no other additives. Although the ingredients seem simple, the role of each ingredient is not simple.


During the fermentation process, the sugar contained in malt will bring carbon dioxide, ethanol and sweetness, burnt taste and nuts, coffee and other aromas to beer; Different varieties of malt have different effects on the color and taste of beer.


Hops is a vine plant and a natural preservative. It brings bitterness and aroma to beer. Like coffee beans and chocolate beans, the flavor of hops depends on the place where they are grown, and most of them have fruit, grass, and citrus aromas. There are more than 120 varieties of hops, and thousands of different flavors can be formulated with different combinations. Therefore, it can be said that craft beer culture is an innovative movement.


Yeast decomposes sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Different yeasts will produce different flavor effects at different temperatures. There are three types of yeast in craft beer: Lager yeast, Ale yeast, and natural fermentation yeast (such as the yeast in Lambic beer is naturally formed in the air). However, common craft beer has a large number of ale and Lager fermentations. After fermentation, the yeast floats on the liquor, which is called top fermentation (Ale), and sedimentation is called bottom fermentation (Lager)↓

Beer fermentation takes time. In order to save costs, industrial beer will greatly shorten the brewing time, increase the output and stabilize the flavor. Generally, rice, starch, etc. will replace malt, and some will have other additives. Industrial beer on a large-scale assembly line has a single taste.

Diversified, sophisticated, independent, and both traditional and innovative are the core values of craft beer. Yes, craft beer is the freestyle of the brewer. This degree of freedom and creativity is incomparable to the same, fast-paced, mass-produced industrial beer.

 

Craft beer insists on creating a variety of different flavors of beer from natural materials. It does not use additives and cannot make up for mistakes afterwards. This is a test of the brewer's technology and formula. For us, compared to industrial beer, the personalized beer with so many stars has a more detailed and special experience, and it can also taste the real added-free wheat aroma and beer flavor.
