Top 10 biggest US craft brewers of 2017

8. Stone Brewing Co – Escondido, CA

Flagship brew: Stone Pale Ale

Founded: 1996

A pioneer for the US craft beer movement, Stone Brewing produced a number of highly hopped beers in the early 90s, including Arrogant Bastard, and was among the first to encourage consumers away from so-called ‘big beer’ styles of lager.

Most recently, the company lodged a lawsuit against MillerCoors over its emphasis of the word “stone” in its Keystone Light rebrand, calling it a “surprisingly bold” and “disconcerting” appropriation of its own name. It followed the rebranding of MillerCoors Keystone Light beer to emphasise the “Stone” rather than the “Key” in its name, which Stone Brewing said demonstrated intention to create confusion in the marketplace with their own brand.
