A brewery can be a building or place that produces beer, or a

business involved in the production of beer. Breweries can take up multiple city blocks, or be a collection of equipment in a home brewer's kitchen. The diversity of size in breweries is matched by the diversity of processes, degrees of automation, and kinds of beer produced in breweries. Typically a brewery is divided into distinct sections, with each section reserved for one part of the brewing process.

A microbrewery, or craft brewery, is a term used to describe a small commercial brewery.

In the early twentieth century, Prohibition drove many breweries in the U.S. into bankruptcy because they could not rely on selling "sacramental wine" as wineries of that era did. After several decades of consolidation of breweries, most American commercial beer was produced by a few very large corporations, resulting in a very uniform, mild-tasting lager of which Budweiser is a well-known example. Consequently, some beer drinkers craving variety turned to home brewing and eventually a few started doing so on a slightly larger scale.

The popularity of these products was such that the trend quickly spread, and hundreds of small breweries sprang up, often attached to a bar (known as a "brewpub") where the product could be enjoyed. As microbrews proliferated, some became more than microbrews, necessitating the definition of the broader category of craft beer - high quality, generally all-malt, beer.

The last decade of the 20th century saw the emergence out of the microbrewing phenomenon of microdistilling with California and Oregon again leading the way in this new development. Microdistilleries have also opened in the Rocky Mountains, Midwest, Southeast and Northeastern United States, though their spread is considerably slower because of higher taxes and stricter laws on both the state and federal levels in most jurisdictions.
