Breakdown of Types of Craft Breweries

The definition of Craft Beer was covered Friday. Look here and here for definitions of Craft Beer.

John LOVES American Craft Beer!

Today we’ll break it down a bit more.

Kinds of Craft Beer =

1. Brewpubs – a restaurant-brewery that sells 25% of more of its beer on site.

2. Microbrewery – a brewery that produces less than 15,000 barrels of beer per year.

3. Regional Craft Brewery – an independent brewery over 15,000 barrels of beer per year whose flagship or majority of volume is in ‘traditional’ beers.

4. Contract Brewing Company – a business that hires another company to produce its beers.

All valid, all different possibilities for producing great craft beer.
