Tips to Enjoy Craft Beer

Don’t Let the Aroma Get You

Since the aftertaste can often get you, you mustn’t take just one sip and say this beer isn’t for you. The key to enjoying this beer is to take a couple of sips, enjoy the flavor, and let the aroma become an enjoyable scent that assists in making this beer taste lovely.

Use the Right Glass

When it comes to enjoying a delicious glass of beer, you must use the right glass. I highly suggest you pour your beer into a tulip glass, a flute, or a pint glass for the most pleasurable experience in tasting your freshly brewed beer.

Watch the Craft Beer Alcohol Percentage

Since this type of beer can be more potent than your average old school beer, it’s important to know what alcohol percentage the beer has. This type of beer can wipe you out for the weekend if you don’t watch your sips and know your limit of alcohol consumption.

When Sampling Craft Beer Do This

If you’re doing a beer tasting event, be sure to start with the craft beer that has the least amount of alcohol in it and work your way up to the higher alcohol content beer. This will ensure you’re able to taste each of the freshly brewed beers without reaching your limit partially through the event.

Be Safe About Consumption

As always, when consuming alcohol you must use your smarts and practice good safety habits. It’s never good to drink and drive, so if you’re out at a beer tasting event have someone designated to not drink and drive you all home. If you’re enjoying the beer at home, then make sure you’re in for the night so you can completely relax and be safe.

When you opt to enjoy a craft beer during your weekend of relaxation, just be sure to follow my tips shared today so that you can enjoy the flavorful taste and not be knocked out for the weekend. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a lovely campfire with your love as you both sip on a freshly brewed craft beer option to give thanks for a week well-lived.
