Whatever Happened to Craft Beer IBUs?

Remember IBUs? The “International Bitterness Unit” once appeared on beer labels and bar menus everywhere as the globally agreed-upon measurement for how bitter a brew is. But, as you may have noticed, it’s become an increasingly rare sight over the past few years. In fact, there’s a chance you didn’t see a single IBU in your last craft beer delivery, or store trip. There’s a reason for that, and it has a lot to do with how far craft beer has progressed.

One of the coolest things about the modern age of craft beer delivery is that anyone can try amazing brews from all over the country.

Now, some of the best craft beer communities in the U.S. are thriving in places craft fans wouldn’t have thought twice about 10 years ago.

Sour IPAs: An Introduction to Sour Ales

IPAs are the most popular craft beer style today. However, tart and tangy brews are on the rise. Bart Watson, chief economist at the Brewers Association, says that “by volume and sales, sours are up 25% or more in each of the last two years.” Thanks to some of the most innovative craft brewers in the scene, there’s now a hybrid style bridging the gap between hoppy and puckering: the Sour IPA.

5 American Stouts (that Won’t Knock You Out)

Not that long ago, if someone offered you a pint of Stout, you could confidently finish the whole thing without fear of ending up all red-nosed and wobbly like some kind of tipsy Rudolph. These days, not so much. Craft breweries from coast to coast are cranking out brews with double digit ABVs across a whole host of styles, but Stouts in particular are boozier than ever before. To be honest, it’s pretty awesome. In fact, some of the most popular brews on Tavour have fallen into that crazy-high alcohol category. But sometimes, you just want to enjoy a few pints of rich, smooth, roasty Stout without getting blotto. A proper brew for those occasions can be tricky to track down, so here are 5 of our favorite sessionable Stouts that won’t leave you snoring on the couch.

Winter is the ideal time for curling up with a warming, chocolatey beverage, especially when it comes with a side of booze!

Think You Know Your Favorite Craft Beer Style? These 5 Brews Might Make You Think Twice

According to the Brewers Association, the fundamental distinction of what makes a craft beer “craft” is: something made in small scales, by craft brewers, and “generally made with traditional ingredients like malted barley; interesting and sometimes non-traditional ingredients are often added for distinctiveness.” In some cases, those ingredients are really far from traditional. But, that’s what makes craft beer the beverage for everyone — brewers are constantly imagining new recipes that shift the borders on what were once rigid style guidelines. Suddenly, everything is not as it seems: the brew in your glass could be both a Sour and a Stout at once; or an IPA and a Lager; or even a Fruit Beer and a Cider! We LOVE this fact about craft beer. Which is why we want to tell you about five of our favorite brews on Tavour that blur the lines between styles.

5 IPAs With Crazy Double-Digit ABVs!

Pick up a 6-pack of Imperial IPAs from your favorite craft crew, and you might only make it through a couple cans before deciding that 7pm is a totally reasonable bedtime. But, if you want some serious bang for your hoppy buck, you have to seek out the biggest, booziest hopbombs to stock your fridge!

Welcome to the Stout Dark Side

In craft beer, you’ll typically find fruit flavors in bright styles like Sour Ales and IPAs — but what’s out there for fruit lovers who want a taste of the Stout dark side? According to the Brewers Association Beer Style Guidelines, there are seven types of Stouts, and none of them include fruit by definition. That doesn’t mean breweries haven’t been making fruited Stouts; Bell’s Brewery created their Cherry Stout way back in 1988! Since then, a few breweries have made a fruited Stout here and there, but over the past two years, fruited Dark Beer is on the rise thanks to the Pastry Stout boom. If you like to dabble in the dark side of brews, here are 8 Deviously Delicious Fruited Stouts to help open your eyes to the chocolate fondue of craft beer:

Name That Hop! The Cones that Dominated IPAs in 2020

Beer styles ebb and flow in popularity, but it appears the IPA is here to stay for years to come. Of Craft Beer & Brewing’s Top 50 Beers of 2020, a whopping 24 of the listings were IPAs, and another 5 were hop-forward Pale Ales. It all “boils down” to the hops (see what we did there?). Brewers have more than 80 different hop varieties to choose from, and yet it only takes a couple IPA-packed beer delivery boxes to notice that certain ones are trending. Sure, part of this is due to the brewers’ accessibility to different varieties. That said, it’s also because of the preferences brewers have for specific aromas and flavors. Some hops are also easier to work with than others, although there are many craft brewers who don’t shy away from a challenge. Here are 5 Hop Varieties That Dominated the IPA Scene in 2020 and some brews that showcase them:

5 Chili-Infused Craft Beers to Spice Up Your Tastebuds!

The first thing you need to know about these 5 delicious craft beers is: they’d be totally wasted on birds. These brews are infused with chili peppers, a flavor birds can’t taste! It’s true! Capsaicin (the stuff that makes it spicy) has no effect on them! And, that’s a real bummer for birds, because few flavors are as bold, as interesting, and as downright fun as the kick you get when you chomp on chilis. Some of the best craft beer makers in the country realized, years ago, that a little heat could make their beers more interesting — like a drizzle of hot sauce amping up a bowl of rice and beans. In recent years, brewers have dosed all kinds of different styles and beer flavors with a little bit of chili heat, and fans can’t get enough of that fiery booze! If you like to heat up your tastebuds, there’s a whole world of flaming-hot brews to explore. And, if you’re wondering where to start, these 5 Chili-infused Craft Beers are a great way to set off on your spicy adventure!

2021 Will Be the Year of Beer Delivery

The COVID-19 pandemic hit craft breweries hard all across the country, but they didn’t take it lying down. They came up with a myriad of new ways to keep slingin’ their brews to fans, and beer delivery was among the most popular. The concept itself isn’t particularly new — at Tavour, we’ve been doing beer delivery for years now.
