Great Divide founder Brian Dunn explains why American brewers have embraced strong beers with particular vigor.
â€œI feel like the craft brewing industry is responding to a demand for more and bolder flavors,â€ he said. â€œI also think that brewers like to sell the beer that they like to drink. And as people who can and do drink beer all day long, itâ€™s obviously more interesting for us to drink big beers that are long on flavor and complexity.â€
The story reminds us that San Diego’s 10th Annual Strong Ale Festival begins Friday.
