Independent Craft Brewer Seal  independent brewer seal

Many beer lovers want to know who makes their beer. The independent craft brewer seal is a handy tool for beer drinkers to easily differentiate beer from small and independent craft brewers and beer produced by other, non-craft companies. The seal is a visual signal to help you make decisions when you shop—when you see the seal, it’s your sign that the beer you’re buying is from an independent craft brewer.
