What is craft beer? 

The BA defines craft beer as "beer brewed by independent breweries". This 'BA' label indicates that the brewers use local ingredients in their craft beer. Having this seal is a mark of approval and is a good indication that the beer is of a high quality.

There are many factors that contribute to the quality of a craft beer, but it'sprimarily its unique taste that sets it apart from mass-produced products.

 

 

(^ the generic brewing process...yes we know...WOW!)

Some differences between craft and industrial-brewed beer are the types of hops, malts, and yeasts used in the brewing process. Typically craft brewers produce smaller batches than industrial breweries. They can experiment with their recipes and create unique beers. This is important in the world of craft brewing, as it allows a brewer to make mistakes without compromising quality. It also allows small breweries to modify their recipe more quickly and more frequently.


Craft beer is becoming increasingly more and more popular. It's unique tastes and wide selection of ingredients give rise to a variety of flavours and aromas.


The main advantage craft beer has over regular beer is the richness of the flavour, and general quality of the beverage. Since regular mass produced beer has to be watered down to reduce costs and improve profitability.


The craft beer market is becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Several key players dominate the US market, and nearly 80% of all beer is sold in these markets. As the demand for unique beers grows, new brewers, styles and flavours will be attracted to the market. This can be seen in the UK, with the number of home brewers, craft brewers, and microbreweries increasing.
