What is Craft Beer?

While many beer lovers and  brewers may have their own definition of Craft Beer, the Brewers Association does define the American Craft Brewer as Small, Independent & Traditional.  Small refers to the annual production of the brew.  In this case annual production is less than six million barrels which is approximately 3% of annual sales in the United States.   Independent means that less than 25% of the Brewery is by a beverage alcohol industry member that is not itself a craft brewer.  Last, but not least, Traditional is a brewer means that the majority of their beer flavors is derived from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation.
