What Makes Craft Beer Unique?

Ever tried drinking craft beer?

No? Oh, I see.

Well, for starters…

Craft beer is a traditional kind of beer, one that is made from local breweries and is made with more organic ingredients – unlike a typical kind of beer that is made from multi-dollar breweries and is made with more additive ingredients.

That being said, here’s what makes craft beer unique:

It’s more similar to wine than any other kind of beer.

The reason why people are more likely to drink wine is because of its heart benefits. And the reason why people are more likely to avoid drinking beer is because of its liver detriments. And that’s what makes craft beer unique: it has more heart benefits than liver detriments due to it being made from more organic ingredients. In moderation, craft beer’s heart benefits include lowering cholesterol due to its high polyphenol content – a kind of antioxidant that also fights cancers and kills viruses.

It helps improve your memory.

Gone are those days when you think passing out with beer in your system would make you forgetful than usual. Craft beer is the kind of beer that helps improve your memory, as well as helps improve your cognitive functions. It’s worth noting, however, that this benefit (along with the first item on this list) only applies to moderate drinking. Regardless, it’s a great reason to drink beer – not just for you to enjoy a night out with your friends, but also for you to keep yourself healthy and fit both in mind and in body.

So, yeah…I think it’s time for you to live just like a Shipyard Beer Advocate – in the healthiest and fittest way possible.

Are you a heavy drinker? What changes are you looking forward to make with craft beer?

Are you a moderate drinker? Do you have any idea how you can keep yourself healthier and fitter with craft beer?
