There’s a craft beer out there with your name on it! Read on to discover the best brew for you.
The Shy & Reserved
You’re an introvert and don’t like to stand out in a crowd. A bit quiet, mysterious, and very observant. You prefer to stand back and watch what’s going on around you.
You’re not going to choose a beer that will draw any attention to yourself. As such, you’re going to opt for the International brews such as Stella Artois, Heineken, Guinness, and Innis & Gunn. They’re tried and true beers that are packed with flavour.
You know what you like and you’d be happier if everything went as planned all the time.
You want top-rated beers that have stood the tests of time. As such, you’re going to gravitate towards beers that have a lot of stellar reputation standing behind them, such as Smithwicks, Harp, and Molson Canadian.
You’re intellectual and probably overthink every decision that you make.
You can appreciate the hard work that goes into a beer and therefore want to try out some of the various options. You’re not into anything too crazy, so a lager or an ale will be your best bet. Try the Lighthouse Taphouse Lager or the Lighthouse Racerocks Ale. You may also want to sip on the Driftwood Pale Ale.
The book and movie genres you enjoy are fiction, fairy tale or sci fi. You like to escape the boredom and routine of reality and let your imagination takeover.
You need a craft beer that escapes the traditional. You need a brew that pushes the envelope in fun flavour and creativity. A few craft beers that are as imaginative as you are include Driftwood Arcus, Fuggles & Warlock’s Gin & Lime Pilsner and Phillips Electric Unicorn IPA.
The Extreme Extrovert
You’re the life of the party and speak your mind at every opportunity.
You need a beer that is as loud as you are, which is why it’s a good idea to go with a craft beer that is heavy on the hops, such as an IPA. The India pale ale has grown to become a favorite for beer aficionados. You should plan on drinking the Lighthouse Shipwreck IPA as well as the Driftwood Fat Tug IPA. If you are looking for something a little darker from time to time, you may also want to add Hoyne Brewing Dark Matter to the mix.
You have a lot of potential but you’ve never been motivated enough to show it.
You may drink whatever is poured in front of you. However, if you know what you like, you should plan on choosing something that’s always available so you don’t have to risk having to think about another beer if it’s not on tap. Some of the Canadian beers such as Okanagan 1516 Lager and Sleeman Honey Brown will make for good choices.
You’re the black-hat cowboy, the easy rider, the dark and mysterious type. You’re solid on your promises, have a big heart hidden behind an even bigger wall, and you’re never one to suffer fools. You like a little bit of danger in your life so long as you’re at the helm.
You need a craft beer that is either as dark and complex as you are or that has a flavour profile with some serious swagger. A few craft beers that speak to your rebel heart include Hoyne Dark Matter, Driftwood Brewery’s Naughty Hildegarde ESB, Driftwood’s Cry Me a River Gose or Dave Mustain’s Megadeath Saison.
