You are probably asking, how do I jump into craft beer? Or why am I wanting to change the beer I’m drinking? Think about the food you eat, you surely don’t eat the same food every time you eat. Sometime you eat fast food but eating hamburgers all the time gets boring. The same thoughts about the beer you drink and especially when there is such a larger selection than there used to be.
I could suggest a 100 different kinds and styles of beer. To make it easier to find and the flavor and quality of the beer is important. Samuel Adams Boston Lager is a great jumping off point. You have definitely seen the commercials of Jim Koch the owner of Sam Adams on TV.
The Samuel Adams Boston Lager beer is a full all malt beer that means no rice, corn or adjuncts added to supplement for fermentable sugars. With the all malt beer you get a fuller body and complex flavors. There are also more hops Hallertau Mittelfruh in particular being used which gives the beer balance, flavor, and aroma. To get most out of the beer’s flavor and aroma it should be served in a clean dry glass.
You’ll start to find beer is meant to be savored and enjoyed not sucked down one after another and not tasted. That would be like eating a Filet Mignon and holding your nose so you don’t taste it = Pointless.
With the new beer revolution going on in America it hard not to drink great beer. We the people will speak with our tongues for taste and not drink bland, cheap, over commercialized beer. “Cheers to All”
