Rise of craft beer

Rise of craft beer | BEER! | Scoop.it

As of March, the United States was home to nearly two thousand four hundred craft breweries, the small producers best known for India pale ales and other decidedly non-Budweiser-esque beers. What's more, they are rapidly colonizing what one might call the craft-beer frontier: the South, the Southwest, and, really, almost any part of the country that isn't the West or the Northeast.

Le Marche Breweries and Apecchio, the Craft Beer Town

Le Marche Breweries and Apecchio, the Craft Beer Town | BEER! | Scoop.it

Le Marche Region in Italy has seen the birth of many small breweries thanks to a unique social project: the Malt Producers consortium CO.BI. (Consorzio Marchigiano Produttori dell’Orzo e della Birra). The role of the consortium is essential for the Breweries chain to malt the cereals of the members to enable them to produce beer under an agricultural regime.  Le Marche is always working to find alternatives for agricultural production and after have been committed for years to overcome the difficulties that farms find to produce beer based on its raw material (barley, wheat, barley, etc.) now see the future in positive way with a growing market. With 17 quality artisan breweries, Le Marche is candidate to become leader in Italy and Apecchio the Italian Capital of Craft Beers.
