What is with US craft beer breweries? Interested to know? Here are top 15 craft beer breweries in USA.
Beer isn’t just what you drink when you go out with friends. Well, it is that, but for some people it’s a passion to which they devote their entire lives. There aren’t many beverages out there able to captivate people with their storied history and artistry—let alone through their exquisite flavour. Well, there are, but beer possesses an accessibility and room for opportunity to grow skills and imagine novel tastes that seem to ignite said passion.
There’s that moment when you try a better beer and you’re hooked. Not everyone may remember exactly where, or when. You may not even remember what beer it was. But much like a 1-year old who tries his first bite of birthday cake and has his first real taste of sugar, you know you’re never going back to that other beer again.
What is Craft Beer?
Craft beer was barely a term 30 years ago; since then, the phrase has been uttered by everyone from beer aficionados to the average Joe. Everyone’s talking about it, and everyone wants in on it. (We’re looking at you, Budweiser Black Crown.) And everyone has a favourite.
Best Craft Breweries in America
The Daily Meal couldn’t have found more variation when we began to survey our craft beer experts and readers about who they think deserves to be called the “best” craft brewery in America. We asked some of the country’s leading craft beer experts (can we have that job?) for their suggestions of which breweries they thought were among the best in the country. Their nominations included breweries of all sizes, regions, and styles.
Choosing Between the Best and Our Beloved Breweries
Granted, as we mulled over our top picks, there was one clear theme — there’s a difference between what’s called “the best,” and those that are “beloved.” But as we talked with our experts and readers about these breweries, we found that there is an intersection of best and beloved. These are the breweries that produced a better product, and then found their fan base (and judging by our responses, these breweries sure have some fan girls and boys).
What’s perhaps most remarkable about this list, however, is the small amount of beer that these 25 craft breweries produce in the “beerscape” of America. Let’s break down the math: hot off the presses from the Brewer’s Association, the 2013 stats show that 7.3 million barrels of beer were sold by independent and small craft brewers during the first half of the year, up from 6.4 million barrels in 2012. Sounds like a big number, right? But in comparison to the total amount of beer sold in the U.S., from brewers large and small, craft beer is still a small piece of the beer market.
