“Craft beer is more than just awesomely delicious beer. It’s also a revolution against the insult of the industrialized notion of beer that has been preying on the populace for decades.”- Greg Koch
According to the Colorado Brewing Association, craft beer is defined as a beer made by a craft brewery…go figure. They also highlight three words to describe what it takes to be considered a craft brewery
What they mean by small is simply the brewery distributes less than six million barrels of beer per year. The brewery must be independent, meaning only 25% can be owned by a non-craft beer producer (Sorry Busch Light). Traditional: This is what makes craft beer so diverse and interesting, craft breweries take pride in their brew, their specific flavor derives from innovative ingredients and fermentation. Unique, delicious and refreshing.
