he Brewers Association—the nonprofit trade group representing small and independent craft brewers—today released its annual lists of the top 50 American breweries, as measured by beer volume sold. In 2016, 40 of the top 50 overall breweries are what the BA considers “craft,” which means the brewery is “small” (annual production of six million barrels of beer or less), “independent” (at least 75 percent owned or controlled by a craft brewer) and “traditional” (at least 50 percent of the beer produced by the brewery is made with “traditional or innovative” ingredients). In 2015, 43 of the top 50 breweries met this definition.
