and others, American craft brewers are making some of the best beer in
the world. They're innovating. They're pushing boundaries. They're
inventing at a remarkable pace. It helps that they have a rapidly
growing base of support from the craft beer loving community in the
United States. These are die hard beer geeks who demand quality from their brew.
While the larger beer market remains stagnant under fierce competition from spirits and wine, American craft
beer is enjoying double-digit growth.
