FROM the depths of caves, the first batches of beer were brewed.

Recipes were often restrained to single-batch quantities due to the labour intensive process, but by the time of the industrial revolution it was in mass production.

In the past 12 months, craft beers have become the drink of choice and, in some ways, a nod to the traditional beer-making process.

Blackwater Trading Co owner Matt Wilson started selling craft beers on tap at the Moffat Beach cafe about a year ago. They started with a single 4 Pines tap, but it quickly bled dry.

“The demand for it was greater and we couldn’t keep up with the volume,” Mr Wilson said.

“We bit the bullet and put in a six-tap system and made a conscious decision to put in craft only, we don’t have any mainstream beers at all.”

Mr Wilson said given the trend there were a few imitations cropping up, made by the large manufacturers.

But unlike the United States, Australia does not have regulations in place specifying what a craft beer is.

In Mr Wilson’s opinion, “true craft beers” are 100% independent.

“They also don’t have preservatives, are crafted by hand and a lot of care has gone into the making of the beer,” he said.

“A lot of mainstream swill we’re all used to drinking, some to a set recipe constructed by scientists and churned out in mass production, there’s no love and care taken into it.”

Mr Wilson said the craft beer trend went hand-in-hand with the food trend sweeping eateries.

“It is a scene that is growing, but it’s still only a very small part of the beer market,” he said.

“It’s better there is a focus on quality and enjoying a beer rather than going out and getting smashed.

“I think the fact it’s made with care and doesn’t use preservatives is also better for us health-wise.”

On Saturday, the Moffat Beach cafe held its inaugural Blackwater Boutique Beer Fest where 15 of Australia’s finest craft beers were available from the tap.

So what makes a good drop?

“It’s got to have flavour, it’s all about the flavour,” Mr Wilson said.

“There are so many different styles – lager is the beer everyone has traditionally drunk in the past, but the craft beer scene is dominated by ales.

“People are getting into pale ales, IPA, golden ales and porters.”

The production of craft beers has also inspired more people to start brewing their own.

“I am one of those people, I’ve been doing it for the last 12 months,” Mr Wilson said.

“I started doing it purely as a way to educate myself more about beers so I can talk with the customers about how the beer is made.”

What is a craft beer?

Craft beer is about embracing the original principles of brewing beer, making beer in smaller batches using only malt, water, hops and yeast in generally small, family-owned operations.

Beer is made when sugars are extracted from grains. The yeast then turns it into alcohol and CO2, creating beer.

Craft beers do not have cheaper forms of sugar added, or other additives to preserve, stabilise and streamline the brewing process.
