“But here’s the thing, “craft” is marketing term no matter which side is using it and Blue Moon has been around much longer than the majority of small brewers in operation today. If we’re arbitrarily using the barrel count, ownership structure and “traditional ingredients” as a definition of craft, then I could never define myself as a craft beer drinker alone.
“This definition limits innovation in beer recipes, demonizes larger breweries, and expands to protect the most powerful craft breweries whenever necessary. It’s a definition formed out of protectionist, anti-big-beer agendas rather than defending the consumer or progressing the craft message in any meaningful way.”
