For a brewery to be considered a microbrewery, they have to meet the following criteria:
Produce up to 460,000 gallons or 15,000 barrels of beer each year.
Sell 25 percent or more of its beer at the brewery. We often see this with establishments like bars, restaurants, and brewpubs that also double as micro breweries.
They have a reputation for brewing “specialty beers.” Micro breweries produce mainly small bath boutique brews, sometimes brewed just for an event or season and often crafted to spotlight a special ingredient such as a specific hop.
So, to sum it up, micro breweries are those that produce fewer than 15,000 barrels of beer per year.
In places where brewers are allowed to sell beer directly to consumers, they usually start brewpubs, a combination of a brewery and bar/restaurant.
To qualify as a brewpub, the brewery must meet the following criteria:
Twenty-five percent or more of their beer has to be sold onsite.
They dispense beer straight from their storage tanks to the consumer’s glass or mug.
Beer storage tanks are commonly used as part of the brewpub’s aesthetics giving the venue a more industrial look than most bars and restaurants.
The tanks also give the establishment a certain authenticity.
