These days, it’s not always that easy to tell who is behind the commercial beers sold by various beer providers.
In an effort to educate beer drinkers about which beers are independently produced, the Brewers Association—the parent organization of the American Homebrewers Association, which is dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft breweries—launched a new independent craft brewer seal.
This new seal gives beer lovers an easy way to identify truly small and independent craft brewers, something these breweries have indicated as important to them. In the future you can expect to see small and independent breweries using the seal on their packaging and at their facilities to proudly display their role as the innovators in today’s beer. You will also see the seal being used on HomebrewersAssociation.org and in the Brew Guru app maps to identify independent breweries later this summer.
