Countries Which Deal in Craft Beer



Beer did debut in Australia at the commencement of British colonization. In 2004, Australia was ranked fourth internationally in per capita beer consumption, at around 110 litres per year, though significantly lower in terms of entire per capita alcohol consumption. The most popular beer in fashion in contemporary day Australia is lager. The oldest brewery still in function is the Cascade Brewery, established in Tasmania in 1824. The leading Australian-owned brewery is the family-owned Coopers, as the other two major breweries, Foster's and Lion Nathan are owned by the British-South African SABMiller and the Japanese Kirin Brewing Company correspondingly. Foster's Lager is made mostly for export or under licence in other countries, predominantly the UK.


Wide-ranging Beer consumption reached 50 million liters in early 2013 and an rising awareness in craft beers developed consequently. The Great Leap Brewing Company is one example of several microbreweries that have been lately launched, with a localization strategy leading to the use of traditional Chinese ingredients and spices in the Beijing brand's beer production process. China's largest brewpub is located in Suzhou and is managed by the Taiwanese brewing company Le BleD'or, while craft beer consumers are both ex-pats and native Chinese.


In France, a chain of American-style brewpubs function under the name Les 3 Brasseurs. There is also a chain of about 7 brewpubs called Frog and Rosbif, which merges British and French traditions. ('Frog' is the English pet name for the French, and 'Rosbif' or roast beef the French nickname for the English). The pubs are decked up in a largely British style, and serve an assortment of ales, stouts and wheat beer.


While in other countries, microbreweries and brewpubs have ascended in response to the large scale manufacturing and promotion of beer, in Germany, the customary brewpub or Brauhaus remains a chief source of beer. This is primarily accurate for the South of Germany, principally the state of Bavaria. Upper Franconia, a district in the Region Franconia in the north of Bavaria, has the maximum number of breweries in the world. Upper Franconia has about one Million inhabitants and ca. 200 breweries. Loads of them are microbreweries or brewpubs


Subsequent to the overture of American microbrews in 2012, the recognition of craft beer bars in Thailand—primarily Bangkok—augmented rather speedily and in January 2014, the fourth global position of Danish microbrewery Mikkeller was initiated in Bangkok. The brand partnered with a well set up beer distribution corporation and seeks to get the most out of on the higher earning capability of Thai people in the second decade of the 21st century, as well as travelers. At the opening, one of the owners explained: "... and we thought it was about time to elevate the level of craft beer available in Thailand and, hopefully, expand throughout Southeast Asia." A sum of 30 beers are served at the scene, including two microbrews exclusive to Thailand

United Kingdom

Earlier than the advancement of hefty commercial breweries in the UK, beer would have been brewed on the premises from which it was sold. Alewives would put out a sign — a hop pole or ale-wand — to illustrate when their beer was ready. The Middle Ages authorities were more concerned in guaranteeing ample quality and potency of the beer than discouraging drinking. Gradually men became caught up in brewing and organized themselves into leagues such as the Brewers Guild in London of 1342 and the Edinburgh Society of Brewers in 1598; as brewing became more ordered and consistent many inns and taverns ceased brewing for themselves and bought beer from these early commercial breweries.
Nevertheless, there were some brewpubs which persisted to brew their own beer, such as the Blue Anchor in Helston, Cornwall, which was launched in 1400 and is considered as the oldest brewpub in the UK. In the UK during the 20th century, most of the customary pubs which brewed their own beer in the brew house encircling the back of the pub, were purchased by larger breweries and closed down brewing on the premises. By the mid-1970s, only four were left- All Nations, The Old Swan, the Three Tuns and the Blue Anchor.
The drift toward bigger brewing companies started to transform during the 1970s, when the fame of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA)'s movement for traditional brewing methods, and the accomplishment of Michael Jackson's World Guide to Beer encouraged brewers in the UK, such as Peter Austin, to come up with their own small breweries or brewpubs. In 1979, a series of UK brewpubs, acknowledged as the "Firkin" pubs, started, operation to over one hundred at the series’ crest; though, the chain was sold and ultimately its pubs closed down brewing their own beer.
Few British brewpubs concentrate in ale, whilst others brew continental lagers and wheat beers. The Ministry of Ales, Burnley The Masons Arms in Heading ton, Oxford; The Brunswick Inn, Derby (in 2010, half of the beers sold by the firm were brewed on-site); The Watermill pub, IngsCumbria; and the Old Cannon Brewery, Bury St Edmunds are some illustrations of small independent brewpubs in the UK.
The city of Bristol was acknowledged by the Guardian publication in May 2014 as a region where the microbrewery industry had prospered. Ten brewpubs, such as The Tobacco Factory, Copper Jacks Craft house and The Urban Standard, were branded as blooming Bristol craft beer organizations.

United States

Attention extended to the U.S., and in 1982, Grant's Brewery Pub in Yakima, Washington was launched, revitalizing the U.S. "brewery taverns" of renowned early on Americans as William Penn, Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry. Development was at the outset sluggish—the fifth U.S. brewpub opened in 1986, but the augmentation while then has been significant: the Brewers Association states that in 2012 there were 2,075 regional craft breweries, microbreweries and brewpubs in the U.S.
