I enjoy a good beer or two on most occasions and I also like buying local as much as I can. This week I am on the hunt for Canberra’s best local craft beer.
What classifies a beer as ‘craft’ is somewhat contentious, some say it’s about using traditional methods while others use the word to describe beer only from small boutique breweries. Everyone, however, seems to agree that it’s about the love and care that goes into the beer – all I know is that I like the end product.
In Canberra, no matter which way you look at it, all our locally brewed beers would be considered craft. There are a few places that have been brewing for quite a while, but there are also some newcomers to the local industry. Whether you’re into hoppy ales or lighter lagers, there is a local beer to keep you happy. So tell me Canberra, who brews the best local craft beer?
To vote, let me know your favourite in the comments below. I’ll try the two most popular places and let you know my verdict in next Monday’s Taste Off article.
