Craft Beer vs Regular Beer - What's the Difference?

Craft Beer vs Regular Beer - What's the Difference?

Is regular beer the same as craft beer? You would want to avoid asking a craft beer enthusiast that question. If you do, order another pint, it will be a long night. To save yourself from a long night of beer talk, we've simplified the answer for you. 

Production Scale Differences

Craft beers are known to be produced in small batches. This is the very essence of craft beers. It's not meant to be made in large batches like regular beers. Craft beers are brewed in small runs, using ingredients that are sometimes rather unique and unlikely to be included in beers. Like sweet potatoes in Coedo's Beniaka Imperial Amber


Let's get this out of the way - taste is very subjective. But there's no denying that the taste of craft beers and regular beers is different. Regular beers often taste watery and to be honest, not very flavourful. Craft beers on the other hand have a burst of flavour all thanks to the quality of ingredients used. 

Beer Styles

IPAs, Pale Ales, Amber Ales, Session Ales, and the list goes on and on. The key to craft beers is the variety of different beer styles that are available. Craving for something sour, try a Gose, looking for something that is hoppy, there's the IPA, nd if you're looking for something with a little bit of kick, try a Double IPA. 

In the end, the best way to know the difference between craft beers and regular beers, is to try them out and judge for yourself! Drop by one of our bars and enjoy a pint or two!
