Very simply put, craft beer is beer brewed in small batches by a smaller brewery, not by one of the big guys. However this is already a mis definition as due to the success of the craft breweries, the larger, commercial breweries are starting to buy out the smaller guys!!
Craft beer has exploded in Australia (and indeed, globally) over the past decade. 15 years ago at BottlO’Briens, we ordered a case of Heineken, concerned that it wouldn’t sell (!!), as Heineken back then was considered a little left of centre. Today, we stock more than 500 different beers. Every week something weirder and wackier is released by a craft brewery, and we stock it because we know the interest is there.
Local Breweries are popping up everywhere and we are supporting local by being proud stockists of local brands including Sunday Road Brewing, Hairy Man and Cronulla Beer co.
The evolution of craft beer has resulted in a hugely successful growth of the overall beer category. It has provided consumers with a constant wave of new and exciting beers to try. It has aroused interest in beer education and has ignited a respect in beer as a beverage with substance ie it is now perceived to be just as worthy to be matched with food, as is wine.
