I savor talking about craft beer with anyone who is interested in the topic.
I became obsessed after residing with a close buddy for a number of years who also happened to own a small lake house brewing setup for beer & wine. It was fascinating seeing him in the dining room with those huge glass jars of dark liquid that would eventually become these delicious varieties of booze that rivaled the craft beers every one of us would purchase from the local liquor store. I remember one time my buddy was slightly offended by another student at university that claimed his beer was “weak” & “didn’t hit taxing enough” compared to higher alcohol per volume varieties from the store. It’s a misunderstanding that alcohol gratified determines the quality of the beer at hand, especially since beers are loaded with terpenes which contribute to the overall feeling of the “buzz” or sensation of intoxication. If you use identifiable ingredients in your brew, you could produce an extremely identifiable & flavorful terpene profile. I’d much rather have beer that is made with this attention of care opposed to the highest ABV levels possible. The same goes for my cannabis products. I’m not the only person who insists that the THC gratified is a lot less pressing than the terpene gratified in a cannabis product. This is identifiable ly true with cannabis flower products & concentrated extracts! The qualitative effects of one strain versus another are determined by the identifiable terpene profile of each strain, & the amount of terpenes present altogether. My favorite terpenes are myrcene & limonene.
