Why I Love Craft Beer and the People Who Brew It

First of all let’s get this straight I am in no way a craft beer snob, I just like tasty eccentric craft beers. I grew up in a family of blue collar workers in small-town southern Ohio. My father, uncles, and grandfathers all drank cheap american made mainstream beer like Busch and occasionally Budweiser. I followed in their footsteps enjoying a cold beer or two when I turned twenty-one. That year I moved to Columbus, Ohio and also began bartending which opened my eyes to trying different things including red wine and different styles of beers. Killian’s Red Irish Ale was one of the first beers I tried that wasn’t a watered down American lager. It was okay but I always thought beer wasn’t really that tasty and actually quite boring. That all changed the day a regular from the bar brought in a growler of the first batch of his microbrewed beer made right down the street. At that point in my life I had never had a microbrewed beer or even a locally made beer. I was truly excited that this gentleman had deemed me worthy to try his trial run at his soon to be opened microbrewery. I made it home that evening and poured my first taste of a brown ale ever. My taste buds exploded and my eyes were wide open into my new curiosity about small batch brewed beers. It was a dark brown color with an amazing nutty aroma and flavor that was absolutely delicious. I wanted more but the establishment would not be open for weeks. This began my journey into trying all different styles of beers including pale ales, porters, and stouts. This experience and kindness of this man who wanted to share his love of beer with me made me love craft beers especially locally made ones. I have always done my best to shop and support local establishments as frequently as possible. I admire and enjoy chatting with the people that do what they love and do it on their own terms. It is truly inspiring and I want my dollars to support my community of local brewers as much as possible. Cheers to them and the people they work with.
