Brewers Association Announces Independent Craft Brewer Seal

With the RateBeer sellout and increase in brewery buyouts, the craft beer industry is taking a hard stance against it. Just today, the Brewers Association released a Seal that independantly-owned breweries can place on their packaging, menus, websites, and tap handles to let its consumers know they are independent and are true to the spirit of the craft beer industry. The seal represents being independent and how it literally "turned the beer industry on its head". This follows Dogfish Head's request to be removed from RateBeer and urging other breweries to do the same.

The Brewers Association is a membership organization dedicated to "promoting and protecting small and independent craft brewers" in the United States.
