DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h66gr9/the_craft_beer) has announced the addition of Canadean Ltd's new report "The Craft Beer Phenomenon" to their offering.
This report provides an overview of the market for craft beer and the drivers behind the growth in the category .
Despite all of the hype surrounding the success of craft beer there is a lack of consensus as to what craft beer actually is.
Currently craft beers are undergoing an unprecedented period of growth. The category has prospered during the economic downturn as consumers seek better quality products - more bang for their buck.
The four main drivers behind the growth of craft beers are quality; heritage; differentiation; and an anti-corporatist stance.
This report uses a wider definition of craft beer that encompasses speciality beers and brands produced by larger brewers and builds upon granular data researched by on-the-ground analysts.

Key Market Issues

- Craft beers are part of a much wider societal trend towards authenticity and localism and away from processed foods. This is manifested in the growth of artisan cheeses; handmade chocolates; home baking and farmers' markets.
- By definition craft tends to form a relatively small part of most global brewers business. However it is extremely profitable and as the success of a brand like Blue Moon has shown can provide much needed growth in otherwise static or declining mature markets.
