The US is great at being first. We’ve invented all kinds of cool things which the world now loves:
- Macintosh Computers
- Pickup Trucks
- John Deer Tractors
We didn’t invent beer, but we sure have taken it to a whole new level. The craft beer craze in the US has flowed over into lots of other countries as well. Even though other countries have a several hundred year head start on us, the booming US craft explosion is the biggest thing to happen to beer in at least the last 50 years. And with the ever advancing US influence, many of the new beers popping up from established and new breweries in other countries are sporting a very American style. Here are just a few examples of how the US is leading the Craft Beer Movement around the world.
So, with the expansion of the US craft beer market, we will continue to see our impact on the world. What used to be an industry dominated by the Europeans, is now being greatly influenced by their yankee brethren. It is great to see this resurgence of interest in the production and consumption of beer. So drink up and know that you’re in the middle of an international beer revolution, and that you’ve got access to some of the hottest beers in the world.
