Brewers Association Unveils Seal to Signify Independent Beers

As mega-multinationals continue to acquire American craft breweries, the Brewers BACraftSealAssociation (BA) has created a seal designating which beers are still produced by independents.

The seal features the silhouette of a beer bottle turned upside down, which, the BA says, “captures the spirit with which craft brewers have upended beer,” and the words “Brewers Association Certified Independent Craft.”

The seal is available for use free of charge by any of the more than 5,300 small and independent American craft brewers that have a valid TTB Brewer’s Notice, meet the BA’s craft brewer definition, and sign a license agreement. It is available to both member and non-member breweries of the BA.

Breweries can find more information about the independent craft brewer seal at BrewersAssociation.org/seal and consumers can learn more at CraftBeer.com/seal.
