Craft beer origins
Not to be confused with Budweiser or Coors, craft beer is manufactured by the small, independent brewer.
Here are the hallmarks of the craft-beer maker:
- It’s small. These brewers make 6 million beer barrels (or less) every year. In total, the production accounts for 3 percent of the total sales in the U.S. annually.
- It’s independent. To qualify as an independent operation, there cannot be an alcohol industry member that owns or controls 25 percent or more of the brewery.
- It’s traditional. The flavors the brewer uses must come from traditional ingredients, but have an innovative flair at the same time.
Typically, a craft brewery prides itself on innovation, coming up with unique twists on beers and developing brand-new styles. Malted barley is generally the traditional ingredient of choice, along with new and interesting flavors.
Taking after the long-standing tradition of a wine dinner, craft beer dinners are built on the same premise. Each course in the meal is paired with a craft beer, strategically chosen to complement each other.
