What are domestic beers?
That kind of depends on who you’re asking. To most of the world, a domestic beer is one that is made in the country in which it is sold. For example, a Bud Light, which is made in the USA, would be a domestic beer in America. However, if you were to travel to Germany, a Bud Light would not be a domestic beer, it’d be considered an import.
Within the United States, however, some people define a domestic beer a bit more colloquially. In this manner, a domestic beer is one that comes from the “big names” in brewing. These include beers produced by Anheuser-Bush, Coors, and Miller. In this definition, a domestic beer is based on popularity and breadth of sales.
What's the difference between domestic beer and craft beer?
In some definitions, nothing is different at all. In other ways, these two beer headings couldn’t be more different. If you’re defining a “domestic” based entirely on the region where it produced and ultimately sold, then you can absolutely have a domestic, craft beer. However, if your definition of a domestic beer is based more on commonplace and popularity, then your craft beers would not be considered a domestic.
That’s because, in order to be considered a craft beer, the brew must be made by small breweries that produce no more than six million barrel per year. Some big names in the US domestic beer world could likely produce that in a month. Additionally, craft beers cannot be more than 25% owned by these large-scale manufacturers, making it literally impossible for a craft beer to also be domestic.
