What is Craft Beer?

Craft breweries or microbreweries are breweries that produce smaller amounts of unique beers. In contrast to big brewing companies that manufacture beers on larger scales, microbreweries focus on selected ingredients to create exclusive craft beers.

The beer is not always traditional but gives new flavors with variations in brewing techniques. These brewing businesses brew unique tastes of Craft Beer.
