The craft beer movement in recent years has afforded beer lovers with options a whole lot tastier than what we saw our Dad’s drinking! At the end of 2015 there were just over 4,000 breweries in the U.S., up from 2,000 just four years before. And just for fun, there were only 284 25 years ago!

According to craft beer enthusiasts for a brewery to be craft it must be three things: small, independent, and traditional.

  • “Small” means the brewery distributes no more than six million barrels of beer a year
  • “Independent” means that less than 25 percent of the brewery is owned by a non-craft beer brewery
  • “Traditional” means that the majority of the brewery’s output consists of “beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation.”

 

And it’s not limited to American hipsters, the craft beer lifestyle has gone global. Recently the Nepali Congress passed a law making it easier for people to start microbreweries. And Yeti Distilling Company is planning to open Yeti Brewing Company on land that’s located between Katmandu and Pokhara in 2017. (Yeti, incidentally, is the Nepali name for the Abominable Snowman.)

 

Not only has craft beer gone global, but it’s appealing to the fairer sex as well! Women all over the world are appreciating the complexity and process of the craft brewing process. At Reilly’s Taphouse, Korea’s first craft beer bar, women make up about 65 percent of all customers. A bartender at the hip, pop-up craft beer bar Namsan Chemistry estimated that 70 percent of customers during the three-month run were female.

 

Stop in to Kelsick Market anytime to see what staple and seasonal brews fill our shelves and to enjoy what we have on tap. We also host a FREE beer tasting on the first Thursday of every month!
