Supplementary notes

Data have been compiled by the Brewers Association from data provided primarily by brewers. The ranking includes different types of top selling craft brewers: regional craft breweries, contract brewing companies and brewpub groups. In addition, it portrays the total volume of beer sold by those that combine a micro- or regional brewery and one or multiple brewpubs, and/or hire a brewery to contract beer for them.
An American craft brewer is defined as being small, independent, and traditional.
Small: Annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less. Beer production is attributed to a brewer according to the rules of alternating propietorships. Flavored malt beverages are not considered beer for purposes of this definition.
Independent: Less than 25 percent of the craft brewery is owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by an alcoholic beverage industry member who is not themselves a craft brewer.
Traditional: A brewer who has either an all malt flagship (the beer which represents the greatest volume among that brewers's brands) or has at least 50 percent of its volume in either malt beers or in beers which use adjuncts to enhance rather than lighten flavor.
Numbers have been rounded to provide a better understanding of the statistic.
