What are Tools for New Beer Drinkers to Find Beers They Like?

Let me make one thing clear, the list of tools for new beer drinkers to find beers they like is endless. There are countless books, podcasts, blogs, forums, apps, events, subreddits, etc. dedicated solely to the love and appreciation of craft beer. There are lists all over the internet focussing on the best beer books, podcasts, and blogs, and we even have our own list of The 6 Greatest iOS Apps Intended for Beer Drinkers, so what makes this toolkit unique and special?

  1. There is no list that crosses mediums to create a comprehensive guide of resources for beer drinkers.
  2. There is no list dedicated to beginner beer drinkers who may not know the nuances of beer lingo yet. 

These ten tools for new beer drinkers to find the beers they like seeks to accomplish exactly that while filling the void left by other beer blogs.

Dorchester Brewing Company is the Best New Brewery in Boston to Visit

In a city with Samuel Adams and Harpoon Brewery, it can be hard for a new brewery to make a dent in a beer scene with over 30 years of history. So when Dorchester Brewing opened the doors of their tasting room to the public this past weekend, it was quite impressive to see a full bar of people eager to try their offerings. I was fortunate enough to be one of those people, and let me point out what makes this new place awesome, why you should go, and why I will be returning.

How Can a Craft Beer Consultant Help?

Look at the image above. It's a sight we are are familiar with. It's a sight that makes many of us anxious when we're trying to choose beer in the store, and its understandable. What is an ESB? What is a Bock? When would I even drink one of those? I know I don't love Blue Moon but I like it more than Sam Adams and I'm not going to buy something called "Wicked Ale" that I've never heard of. I've heard of Fat Tire but I don't know much about it, should I buy that?

 

We get it. We've been there. There's no obvious answer when it comes to choosing beer and unless you're shopping at a specialty store, and those are hard to find, nobody is going to help you make the right choices for you. When it comes to choosing beer we're all just going with our gut, buying into branding, labels, and marketing, and making huge, simple mistakes that are leading to buying the wrong beer. But your search doesn't have to be without hope! You can find the right beer for you! And there are a few ways to go about it.

Buying a Variety Pack of Beer for Me

Why Variety Packs of Beer are for Me?

 

Often, we beer drinkers learn from beer blogs, magazines, newsletters, and forums written by beer brewers and cicerones (or beer experts) and targeted for none other than those same brewers and cicerones ... and it can get kind of stale.

 

We're all writing and reading about the same things: hops, malts, colors, flavors, IBUs, you know the words, so it becomes this mash ton of similar content that can be hard to sift through to find new grains of knowledge. It's hard to stay inspired, too.

 

There is one type of beer, or rather beer case, that can help us get out of this mash ton. A beer case that the so-called experts never mention: variety packs. Featuring multiple different beers from some of the best breweries in the world, variety packs cover every beer type under the sun in one multi-pack.

 

So to help you sprout from your typical grains and learn something new to make you better at finding the right beer for you, we've compiled our favorite variety packs from each region of the country. Buy these. You'll learn, try new flavors, and maybe even find your favorite beer! And if you're itching to find more beers like the ones you loved, you can request a consultation with Beers 4 Me.
