What Defines a Craft Brewer?
The Brewers Association defines an American craft brewer as a small and independent brewer.

  • Small: Annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less (approximately 3 percent of U.S. annual sales). Beer production is attributed to a brewer according to the rules of alternating proprietorships.

  • Independent: Less than 25 percent of the craft brewery is owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by a beverage alcohol industry member which is not itself a craft brewer

  • Brewer: Has a TTB Brewerโ€™s Notice and makes beer.
