The PERFECT Brew Crew
Choosing the best brews for our beer candle collection
The first step to “scent-matching” a craft beer or microbrew is research. With over 4,000 breweries in the United States alone, we had to create a manageable list to choose from. We started by making a list of our very favorites. With the help of the amazing APP called “Un-Tapped,” we were able to scan through our lists and comprise a much smaller list.
Down to 20 Brew Favorites
This list was comprised of each of our “top 5’s.” With 2 gents and 2 gals, we really felt we had a great representation of some fantastic craft brews. Not all of the beer types made it to the top 20, but at least we had narrowed our list down to 20 craft beers out of a total of over a few hundred. Over a couple of weeks, were were able to get together and conduct our own “tasting sessions.”
Down to 10 Brew Favorites
As these sessions proved to be very helpful and insightful, it was very hard for us to narrow it down to just 10…so we narrowed our “launch” list down to 10. We still have 10 more we could potentially add in the future.
In this list, we made sure we had at least 5 different styles of craft brews. To learn more about the different categories of craft beers, we have made a small list of the few brew categories we used in our top 10.
Hopefully, this list of craft brew types and their definitions can help you when choosing the perfect beer candle from the Barley & Hops Craft Candle microbrewery.
