Craft beer is a growing market and the American craft brewer is often small, independent and traditional. This can work tremendously in their favour as in addition to their regular brew, they often brew a special, seasonal beer, which if it becomes popular, will have their customers coming back for more. Larger and more commercial beer companies cannot do this as often as microbreweries can, so this is one advantage that craft beer has over its larger more commercial competition.
