Independent Craft Brewery

How can you tell if a beer is made by a U.S. craft brewer? Seek the independent craft brewer seal.

The independent craft brewer seal was launched in June 2017 by the Brewers Association. The Brewers Association (BA) is the membership organization dedicated to promoting and protecting small and independent craft brewers in the United States. The BA defines a craft brewer as small, traditional and independent.

The logo is designed as an upside-down beer bottle, which symbolizes how the U.S. craft beer movement has turned beer on its head worldwide. 

As global beer makers purchase formerly independent craft brewers, knowing which breweries are independent can be confusing for craft beer consumers. Look for the seal shown on the left to know you are purchasing beer brewed by an independent craft brewer like Fieldcrest.
