Supporting local craft breweries is important and has a number of obvious benefits for both the community and a craft beer lover like you. We wanted to include this guide for anyone who might ask the question, “Where are the best breweries near me?”

One benefit of supporting a local brewing company, beer hall, or beer bar is that it helps to boost the local economy and beer scene. Local breweries often source their ingredients from local farms and suppliers to make exceptionally good beer, which helps to support these local businesses as well. In addition, the money that is spent at a local brewery is more likely to stay within the community, as opposed to a massive, widely available brewery. This can help to create local jobs and stimulate economic growth within the community. The trickle down effect is real and you can also taste the ‘homegrown’ flavor and love that goes in to each glass of beer. Better ingredients make better beer.

Another benefit of supporting a local brewery is that it can help to foster a sense of community. Local breweries are often an important gathering place for people within the community, and they can serve as a hub for social events and activities. Not only are they third spaces for social gathering, but also great for local running clubs to meet up, local bands to play in, and also as event space for many community organizations. This can help to bring people together and create a sense of belonging within the community.

Additional Benefits to Visiting Local Breweries

In addition, local breweries often have a greater focus on sustainability and environmental responsibility. They may use eco-friendly practices in their brewing process, such as using recycled water and locally-sourced ingredients. Supporting a local brewery can be a way to show your commitment to sustainability and make a positive impact on the environment.

Most importantly of course is a local brewery gives you the opportunity to try unique and innovative beers that you may not be able to find elsewhere. Local breweries often experiment with new and unusual flavors and ingredients, and they may offer a wider range of styles and options than a larger, more commercial brewery. This can be a great way to discover new beers and expand your horizons. Don’t forget to try pairing some local eats with those local beers.

Overall, there are many benefits to finding and supporting a local brewery. From boosting the local economy and fostering a sense of community to being more environmentally responsible and offering unique and innovative beers. Enjoy and support local wherever local is to you at the moment.
