Some of you may be wondering what is the difference between craft beers and regular beer?
Regular beers are beers made in corporate breweries, usually with non-traditional ingredients. Craft beers are beers made with traditional ingredients in small batches. They have richer and more distinct tastes than mass production beer. In South Florida Craft beers have become a staple of local beer aficionados with a host of breweries serving up their unique ales. Recently Black Flamingo brewery opened in Oakland Park, giving local artisan ale fans another reason to celebrate and well, to drink !
