There is no denying that beer made in a microbrewery has a touch of extra care and is more flavoursome. Well, that’s how beer lovers like to believe. And when it is about microbrewery and great beer it is almost impossible to ignore the importance of Belgium.
Each year many beer connoisseurs travel to the Europe for a fantastic Belgium Brewery Tour. And these breweries are not your usual industrial places, but microbrewery. So let’s first talk about what is a microbrewery and why are they so much loved.
In the matter of scale, a microbrewery is comparatively smaller like a home-run business. And yes, that’s why they are termed as micro. For instance, an industrial brewery will produce millions of barrels of beer as the yearly production. But a microbrewery will only produce about 15,000 barrels.
Why microbrewery is more preferred?
Microbreweries are all about specialty beer or boutique beer. In other words, you can drink different types of beer in one place. Each has its own taste, flavour, and colour. The owners of microbreweries always love to play with flavours and ingredients to produce distinct types of beers. People who love beer always want to experiment with the new taste. If that is what your wish is, then craft beer is your thing.
