Always choose Craft Beer Today the phrase "Craft Beer" is used as a defining marketing term for -- small batch -- high quality beer. It may appear to be a new term for beer from boutique breweries and yet craft beer has been brewed in Australia since the 1980's. Beer is made from four main raw ingredients - water, malts, yeast and hops.
