What is beer?
It is an alcoholic beverage produced by the fermentation of malt, hops and yeast, along with water. The brewing process can be dated back to as early as 6000 BC, where remains of barley were found to be used in making drinks. Throughout history, the brewing process underwent a lot of changes and many were lost. To this day, 2 major styles dominate the market: Lager and Ale. Lager uses bottom-fermenting yeast which sinks, and ale uses top-fermenting yeast that floats. The yeast used in lager requires low temperatures hence lager is better drink chilled. Ale, on the other hand, can be fermented in warmer temperatures. The nature of Lager, needs to be drunk and thirst quenching made it dominate the current market.
What is craft beer?
Defining craft beer is a bit tricky. First, we’ll have to understand that this term does not relate to any specific method, ingredients or location of brewing. The word “craft” simply means that this beer is made in a smaller quantity than others, so people would believe that it is something made with more attention to detail. This is true to a certain extent, as they are made in small quantities, breweries are able to “experiment” with each brew to create hundreds of different flavors with different ingredients added.
The Brewers Association in the US defines craft beer brewery as “annual production of less than 6 million barrels”, which is only 3% of all beer produced in the US annually. In Hong Kong, there is no such an association or rule to distinguish this. But there is an even simpler method currently that works for most craft beer in Hong Kong: If the beer is brewed in Hong Kong, it should be crafted, as there is no way for any craft beer brewery in Hong Kong to produce enough to represent a major market share, locally or internationally.
