Well, yes, I guess that's true then. But aren't all beers mass produced, what's the min number not to be classed as mass produced?

That's a good question, I'm not really sure. Here in the states, you have the big three in Anheiser Bush, Miller, and Coors, which dwarf everything else by volume. No other beer comes close to the level of output they do. So there is no gradual cutoff mark, it's like dropping off of a huge cliff.

A well known beer like a Sam Adams here in the states is probably less than 2% of the market share here.

I remember "Dizzy Dean" promoting "Falstaff" on Saturday Baseball broadcasts. Never got to try that one.

Does the US have a lot of microbreweries? Smaller operations that cater for the beer drinker who likes to try something other than the mass produced stuff?

I tried Coors once.................I couldn't spit it out fast enough to be honest.

That was back in the early "60's. They went out of business, but it was a big brand at one time.

Yes, there has been an explosion in the microbeer scene over the past decade. There are a ton of them, and it seems like new ones are popping up all the time.

Indian Pale Ales seem to be the trend, a lot of different independent breweries are making that style. But there has been an upsurge in all styles.

Sounds a bit like the UK then in that regard.
