The Craft Beer industry got its start in the 1960’s and has become a key segment of the beer brewing industry. Small independent brewers began to grow in numbers during the 1970’s when home brewing beer became popular. In the 1990’s the industry expanded again with the popularity of microbreweries. Today the craft beer market is growing at a rate of about 14% annually. There are approximately 7,000 breweries in the U.S.
