Contract Brewing is Not a Dirty Word – #craftbeer

You wouldn’t know it by the labels alone, but some craft brewers don’t actually own their own brick and mortar brewery. Instead, they employ the resources, equipment and often the labor of other breweries to make beer. The Brewers Association (BA) defines this type of brewery as a contract brewing company—essentially a business that hires another brewery to produce its beer. The contract brewing company is often responsible for recipe development and handles the marketing, sales and distribution of the beer. The term can also refer to a brewery that hires another brewery to produce additional beer they may not have room for at their current facility.
