Craft vs traditional
Blazing a trail through the hipster parts of Berlin, craft beer is revered for its aromatic blend of spiced and earth-infused aromas – a more distinctive, flavoursome beer which is now battling for the title of ‘quality’ German beer. The favourite type amongst in-the-know German beer circles on the other hand is paler and adopts traditional brewing techniques and ingredients to create a lighter, sweeter and, arguably, purer alternative.
Bored of big brands, Berlin craft beer fans aren’t prepared to sacrifice flavour and character for the sake of purity. The competition is brewing – literally.
