Most commonly, brewing itself means the production of malt beverages, like beer or ale, by grinding and boiling the malt and hops and fermenting the resulting mixture with yeast. This art of brewing established itself with the advent of agricultural societies and the cultivation of grains such as wheat and barley back in ancient times. Microbrewery, however, is a rather new term that originated in the late seventies in the United Kingdom and was initially considered to be a brewery with limited capacity. Initially, this capacity was limited to less than 3,000 barrels, but due to an increase in popularity, it increased to as much as 15,000 barrels per year by the end of 1980.

Back in its early days, micro-brewed beer was often referred to as bear that was mainly produced in homes or small pubs. During the first parts of the twentieth century, a lot of microbreweries were forced to closure and bankruptcy, especially in the U.S, mainly due to the prohibition of alcohol and lack of resources. Mainstream beer production was limited to large corporations, only resulting in a very uniform tasting beer.

But consequently, with the failure of prohibition law and the need for a wider variety of beer, people began taking the concept of homebrewing to a larger scale. As the popularity of these products grew, many such locations sprang up across the globe giving rise to the idea of microbreweries. These places commonly had bars built along with them, providing an opportunity to sell the product directly.

Microbreweries make it possible for the producers to create their unique concoctions and do different experiments with the flavor of the beer. Beer often loses its flavor and freshness due to excessive storage. That is why hundreds and thousands of beer lovers from around the globe have come to love the taste and feel of the beer brewed in microbreweries, mainly due to their unique touches and freshness.

Microbrewed beer tastes richer and has a darker color tone to it as compared to commercially and mass-produced variety. That is why the concept of microbreweries is not restricted only to the pub. Just for the love of it, a lot of beer aficionados brew their beer at home too.
Though microbreweries do not give any real competition or pose an alarming threat to major beer brewing companies as they claim a very dismal market share when compared to these giants. Still, their influence and uniqueness have caused these major market players to open their microbreweries based on their brand name. In some cases, these companies have been forced to buy the local microbreweries outright.

Thus microbreweries have carved their niche in the market. Thanks to them, people now have a choice of beer they want to drink. Either they can buy the brand available in the locality, visit the nearest pub for a drink or brew their masterful blend at home. It provides an excellent opportunity to explore different recipes and do experimentation in brewing rich and hearty beer.

At present days there are many Commercial Microbrewery manufacturers available. They produce the best quality Commercial Microbrewery.
