Whenever you buy a new craft beer at the store, you essentially roll the dice on whether you’ll like it. Unlike going to a brewery where servers are happy to let you try a sample, most retail stores typically do not offer consumers a preview. Luckily, that trend is starting to change as new specialty stores create space for small bars, taprooms or filling stations.
