Craft beer is made in an independently owned microbrewery or sometimes called “craft brewery” because it produces a small amount of beer compared to the major beer manufacturers. These smaller breweries place a big emphasis on flavour and brewing technique. There are number of craft breweries In Sydney including the Lord Nelson and Sydney Brewery Co.
