Going back to basics, small breweries are using meticulous craftsmanship to create
beers with rich taste. These beers represent a new authenticity and way of life.
For some, beer has always been a treat for body and soul. Now, beer is establishing
itself as the drink of choice among a hipper, cultured audience. “Brew it yourself” is
more than a trend; it’s the credo of a new creative scene that has developed around
beer and is questing for its lost taste. What began over 30 years ago with hobby
brewers in the United States has today become an international movement with beer-
loving adherents from Europe to South Africa.
