Though craft beers have been rapidly gaining in popularity over the past few years, their roots in brewing history go much deeper.
Craft beers, defined by the Brewers Association, are those created by brewers that are small, independent and traditional. "Small" would be considered an annual production of six million barrels or less, "independent" implies that less than 25 percent of the company is owned by someone who is not a beverage alcohol industry member that is not itself a craft brewer, and "traditional" means that the brewer derives its flavors from traditional brewing ingredients and their fermentation.
