They Aren't Magicians, But They Make The Magic Happen

From our Glossary: Brewery - A plant or facility dedicated to operate and house the equipment, materials, processes, crew, and administrative overhead involved with the brewing process. Breweries can vary considerably in size (relative to production and capacity), and can contain one or more individual systems producing beer independently. A brewery's size defines what category of brewing company it belongs to. This is independent of whether a brewery is officially considered a special kind of brewery, such as a Trappist or Craft brewery. Craft Breweries do not use adjuncts in their brewing processes. Because Lagers and Ales require different brewing practices, these kinds of beer are usually made in different facilities and equipment. Like all other manufacturing plants, breweries and their equipment have gone through many stages of moderization over different eras of industrialization. Many breweries also specialize in one specific style or set of similar styles of beer in order to reduce costs, target a niche market, streamline the brewing process, become leaders in the style's industry, and/or advance the development of the style.

The following is a fun list of all of the companies and breweries that make the beer we enjoy (or don't enjoy).
