In an effort to educate beer lovers about which beers are independently produced, the Brewers Association—the not-for-profit trade group dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft brewers—launched a new seal touting independent craft brewers.
Hear, hear: 'Independent craft brewers continue to turn the beer industry on its head by putting community over corporation and beer before the bottom line...These small businesses give back to their backyard communities and support thousands of cities and towns across the U.S. As Big Beer acquires former craft brands, beer drinkers have become increasingly confused about which brewers remain independent. Beer lovers are interested in transparency when it comes to brewery ownership. This seal is a simple way to provide that clarity—now they can know what’s been brewed small and certified independent.'
