I enjoy talking about craft beer with anyone who is interested in the topic.
I became obsessed after residing with a close neighbor for a number of years who also happened to own a small beach house brewing setup for beer plus wine.
It was fascinating watching him in the kitchen with those sizable glass jars of dark liquid that would eventually become these delicious varieties of booze that rivaled the craft beers the two of us would purchase from the local liquor store. I remember a single time our neighbor was slightly offended by another student at school that claimed his beer was “weak” plus “didn’t hit hard enough” compared to higher alcohol per volume varieties from the store. It’s a misunderstanding that alcohol content 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 unique ingredients in your brew, you could produce an severely unique plus 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 our cannabis products. I’m not the only person who insists that the THC content is a lot less pressing than the terpene content in a cannabis product. This is particularally tploy with cannabis flower products plus concentrated extracts, then the qualitative effects of a single strain versus another are determined by the unique terpene profile of each strain, & the amount of terpenes present altogether. My favorite terpenes are myrcene plus limonene.
