Brewers Association Redefines 'Craft Brewer'

Published: 03/18/2014

BOULDER, Colo. — The Brewers Association recently updated its definition of “craft brewer” to be “more inclusive” of a wider range of breweries and their products.

According to the Brewers Association, the three pillars of the craft brewer definition — small, independent and traditional — remain the same. But some elements of each pillar were modified by the board of directors to reflect evolution within the industry.
