When people hear about craft beer for the first time, the first question that springs to their mind is this one:

Does craft beer taste better?

Unfortunately there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer to that question because tastes are subjective… and because “craft beer” is a term that encompasses THOUSANDS of different brews. If this confuses you, here is what you need to know: Craft beer is a type of beer that is produced by a micro-brewery. The latter is often described as a “small, independent and traditional” brewery that focuses on quality rather than quality.

There are many micro-breweries out there, and each one of them produces craft beer in their own, unique way with their own, unique ingredients.

But as we said earlier, Calgary micro-breweries of the likes of the Minhas Micro Brewery focus on quality rather than quantity. This is what differentiates them from larger breweries that target the masses. Micro-brewers are known to put a lot of care and love into each and every one of their brew, something which unfortunately just can’t be said about commercial brewers.

With that being said, it comes as no surprise that most people really do think that craft beer tastes better. But of course, as we said earlier, tastes are subjective, and we don’t like to generalize.

If you are still wondering if craft beer tastes better than commercially produced beer, why don’t you try and find out for yourself then? The easiest way for you to do this would be to visit the Minhas Micro Brewery in Calgary. Often hailed as the best micro-breweries in the province, the Minhas Micro Brewery offers a brewery tour that runs 5 days a week and only costs $10 per entry. The latter provides people with the opportunity to learn more about craft beer and how it’s made…

And of course plenty of beer samples to go along with this knowledge! :-)
