Beer drinking is a popular pastime all over the world and there are many big brands in the beer industry. These large brewers manufacture large quantities of beer annually. There are also companies that produce smaller quantities of beer. These brewers are referred to as craft brewers or microbrewers. A craft brewery is an independently owned type of brewery that makes much fewer quantities of beer than large breweries. Though they producer less beer each year, craft brewers are no less interested in quality, flavour, and brewing techniques. The origins of craft brewing date back to the emergence of microbrewing in the US and the UK during the 1970s. Though the term "microbrewery" was initially meant to describe the size of breweries, over time, it became an alternative brewing philosophy especially in areas like brewing flexibility, adaptability, experimentation, and customer service. In the 980s, microbrewing was eventually defined as any brewery that produces fewer than 15,000 U.S. beer barrels (1,800,000 litres; 460,000 U.S. gallons) annually. But somehow, microbrewing became less fashionable and metamorphosed into craft brewing. The term craft brewing usually refers to those microbreweries that commenced operations from the 1970s but can also include older brewers operating with similar characteristics as micro or craft brewers. Craft brewing is a time-consuming process that is considered an art by brewmasters. In the UK, the “Assured Independent British Craft Brewer” initiative of the Society of Independent Brewers ensures that craft brewers are small and independent makers of quality beer. In the US the same role is played by the Brewers Association. One company involved in the craft beer industry is Flavourly Limited.
