An American craft brewer is small, independent and traditional.
o Small: Annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less. Beer production is attributed to a brewer according to the rules of alternating proprietorships. Flavored malt beverages are not considered beer for purposes of this definition.

o Traditional: A brewer who has either an all malt flagship (the beer which represents the greatest volume among that brewers brands) or has at least 50% of its volume in eitherall malt beers or in beers which use adjuncts to enhance rather than lighten flavor.
