This summer try a new craft beer and savour the moment. Pexels

The rise of the craft beer industry has changed the way beer lovers, and non-beer drinkers, consume beer.

The industry has made it possible for even non-beer drinkers to enjoy a more flavourful drink, with little or none of the bitterness we have become accustomed to with the usual beer, and more fruity notes. 

The lower alcohol volume in some craft beers also  means you can enjoy more beer, especially as the holidays draw near. 

Local and international brewers  have come up with some very interesting names and flavours.

Who would have thought that a pumpkin flavoured beer would work? For a more crisp and refreshing taste – apple, citrus and cherry beers are always a good option and they are  perfect for those long, hot days.
