4 Reasons We Love Local Craft Beer

At The Nodding Donkey, we serve it all: domestics, imports, craft beer, and even yes, local craft beer. 

 

But we’ll admit, we’ve got a soft spot in our heart for those local craft breweries, the ones that hail from the great state of Texas, many of which are right here in Dallas-Fort Worth! Craft breweries have popped up all over the place in the last few years, and we love supporting them. You’ll find many of the local breweries on our menu – both bottled and on tap. 

 

So what’s the big deal with drinking local? Here are 4 reasons we love drinking local craft beer:

 

1.    Shopping Small

Small businesses are the backbone of this country (heck we’re a small business!) and we love supporting like-minded folks. In fact, studies have shown that most Americans live within a 10 mile radius of at least one craft brewery! Shopping these local breweries and supporting them keeps money in our local economy and allows it to flourish. 

 

2.    Fresh Ingredients

We are not here to say that others aren’t using fresh ingredients, but when you shop-small, you are normally met with people who’ve personally shopped these ingredients. Whether they are buying organic, or even adding local ingredients also sourced from your area, fresh ingredients matter to the overall taste of the beer. 

 

3.    Sustainable Practices

We love “going green” when we can, and sustainability matters to us! It matters to many small business owners who care about more than just the bottom line. We’ve met with many craft brewery owners and operators and love hearing their stories of ingenuity and resourceful uses of energy.

 

4.    People Behind the Beer

Most of these small craft breweries have a story. They started somewhere. And if you support them, chances are, you’ll get to know them. You make connections. You get to be a part of something bigger than yourself. What’s not to love?!
