The 4 Main Ingredients In Craft Beer

Updated: Feb 22, 2022

The 4 main ingredients in craft beer are barley, hops, yeast, and water. What makes these four ingredients so important to the brewing process is that they all play a crucial role in influencing the flavor of the final product.  Barley for example plays an important part as it influences how sweet or malty the final product will be because of its sugars content which can range from high (dry) to low (sweet). Hops also influence flavor by providing bitterness and aroma while yeast provides alcohol content as well as contributes to ester production which affects taste and aroma. Finally, water is actually one of the most important ingredients in beer because it helps regulate temperature during fermentation and adds minerals that affect mouthfeel.
