LONDON, Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- About craft beers
Craft beers are flavored beers brewed in microbreweries or small, independent, and traditional breweries. Small breweries are those that produce less than 6 million barrels of beer annually, while independent breweries are those where not more than 25% of the brewery is owned and managed by an alcoholic beverage company. Traditional breweries are those breweries where 50% of the volumes of beer produced are malt beers that use high-quality ingredients. Craft beers have distinctive tastes as compared to regular beers made of various flavors and ingredients. These beers are manufactured and served fresh in bottles, cans, and kegs.

Technavio's analysts forecast the craft beer market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 18.3% and 16.72% in terms of revenue and volume, respectively, over the period 2014-2019.
