So what is craft beer?


According to the Colorado-based Brewers Association, craft beer must be small, independent and traditional.

  • “Small” means the brewery distributes no more than six million barrels of beer a year.

  • “Independent” means that less than 25 percent of the brewery is owned by a non-craft beer brewery (like Anheuser-Busch InBev).

  • “Traditional” means that the majority of the brewery’s output consists of “beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation.” (Sorry, Smirnoff Ice.)
