It’s also a sign that the beer community is growing and the demand for good and interesting beers is growing. “Super tiny microbreweries or brew pubs, that make beer for a very localized network of taverns and stores, are starting to become a trend, primarily in the states that allow self-distribution as a means of getting beer to market.” says Paul Gatza, director of the Brewers Association.
