FAQs

Why Craft Beer is expensive? Because it is
  • Brewed using high quality malt and hops
  • Short shelf life product due to the absence of post-fermentation treatment to tamper with the freshness (no filtration, no pasteurisation, no chemicals)
  • Brewed in small batches
  • Flavourful fresh natural beer.
Why Craft Beer has less gas in it?  Craft Beer is by design not as highly carbonated as industrial beer because
  • Gas prevents taste buds from appreciating full flavour in craft beer.
  • It makes you feel more bloated.
  • Contrary to popular belief, gas has nothing to do with beer flavour and freshness.
Why one brew of Craft Beer becomes lighter over time?

What is the difference between Craft Beer and Industrial Beer?
  • Industrial beers are mainly lagers produced in large quantity and treated (filtration and/or pasteurization and/or chemical additions) to withstand room temperature for a long period of time. Industrial brewers’ aim is to produce reasonably good beer at affordable price for the mass.
  • Craft beers are mainly ales produced in small batches with no post fermentation treatment (no filtration, no pasteurization, no chemicals). Craft Beer is “LIVE” and freshness is the most important feature. Craft brewers’ aim is to brew high quality, natural and flavorful beers for discerning taste.
