What is the Craft Beer Production Industry?

This industry includes microbreweries and brewpubs that produce beer for resale or consumption on premises. A microbrewery produces a limited amount of beer, typically no more than 6.0 million barrels (189,000,000 US gallons) of beer per year. A brewpub brews and sells beer on the premises and may prepare and serve food to dining patrons. A brewpub may also be considered a microbrewery if it engages in a significant amount of beer distribution on a regional level.
