Brewers Association Revised Craft Brewer Definition

The BA board made a number of changes to its basic documents. Among those is a revised "craft brewer" definition. This was just announced, so I'm not sure about its exact effect, but it would seem, at a minimum, to bring some of the older brewers, specifically Schell, into the fold. This is a welcome development.

    Honestly the whole kurfluffle over the craft beer and microbrew terminology is pretty annoying.

      I completely agree. No new breweries start out as industrial breweries, so every new brewery will be able to use the marketing term.
