All of us have one. That friend who refuses to drink craft beer, and they all say the same thing: “I just haven’t found a craft beer that I like as much as fill in the blank for whatever macro beer they always have with them.”
To that, we say, “bullshit.” There are almost 5,000 craft breweries in the US churning out styles that run the gamut from Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup sweet to pickle juice sour, and you can’t find a single craft beer that you like? Come on. You’re not trying. So we’ve done the work for your macro-beer loving friends and found 12 “gateway beers” that are certain to win over even the most hard-headed Budweiser fan. Bonus: even if you’re already a craft beer aficionado, these beers are typically excellent during the summer.
