Trending Now: Craft Beers

Craft beer and craft breweries are a major trend for 2015. With breweries popping up all over….it’s hard for the average consumer to distinguish between craft and regular….the question asked by many is answered here: What EXACTlY is a 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.” (Think chocolate or nutty)
