You’ve been thinking about it. I know you have. You’ve been hemming and hawing and wondering… “how do I know which craft brews I would like?” and “what if I pick up beers that don’t suit my taste at all?”
Admittedly, there’s always a chance that, when picking up some beer you’ve never tried, you may not completely dig it. In fact, you may even straight up hate it. But here’s the thing; you’ll never know until you try. Plus, if you only ever stick to your tried-and-true, you’ll never have the chance to realize all that beer has to offer.
So, how does one jump into the world of craft beer? How do you know where to start? One great way to either get into micro brews altogether, or to try offerings from breweries not yet on your “been there, done that” list, is to have a beer sampling party with some friends. Pick up some Beer Tasting Glasses (these hold 2.5 ounces each) and ask everyone to bring at least one new craft beer for everyone to try. This way, you’re not stuck with a 6-pack of something you hate, and even if there is a brew you don’t enjoy, it’s likely that at least one of your guests will. Everyone wins!
Still not convinced? Beer reviews are a great way to help you make your pressing decision. While you may not always agree with what the reviewer has to say once you’ve tried it, at least you’re armed with a bit more knowledge about the style and brew than when you started.
So, what are you waiting for?
