There’s never been a better time than now to love beer in America, and you can thank the country’s small and independent craft brewers for kickstarting the revolution. But you know who isn’t super stoked about the little guys flipping the industry on its head? The big beer Goliaths who for decades had a stranglehold on what we guzzled—mostly cheap, watered-down macro brews—before the Davids started producing unique beers that changed the way we drink and think.

As a result, conglomerates like Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABI) have resorted to snatching up these smaller breweries at a furious pace over the last few years. Since 2011, ABI alone has purchased 10 formerly independent brewers, including Goose Island, Blue Point, and Elysian.

While 98 percent of the 5,700 operating breweries in the U.S. still register as “craft” breweries—defined by the Brewers Association as those that produce 6 million barrels or fewer per year, and are less than 25 percent owned or controlled by a mass brewer—you might not realize that so many of the cooler brands you love (Lagunitas, Ballast Point and Terrapin, for example) are secretly the property of giants (Heineken, Constellation and MillerCoors, respectively). And that’s the point: If you can’t beat ‘em, buy ‘em, and hope no one really notices the difference while you reap the rewards.

Why does it matter? “We didn’t always have so many amazing beer options from local, regional, and national breweries, but now we do,” says Julia Herz, the Craft Beer Program Director for the Brewers Association. “And we’re concerned that the landscape is changing so much that the choice and diversity that we get as beer lovers is threatened.”

That’s why America’s independent craft brewers, under the leadership of the Brewers Association, are fighting to reclaim their freedom—in a big way. This week, they launched the “Take Craft Back” campaign, which is pretty easily the largest crowdfunding campaign in history.

How large are we talking? Try $213 billion, with a b. That’s approximately how much it’ll cost to buy ABI, which uses its “sheer financial mass to make sure that independent craft brewers who refuse to sell out get pushed to the margins,” according to the BA. Of course, this is a completely ludicrous goal, and Herz admits as much. “If every person on the planet gave $10, we’d still only be a third of the way there,” she says. “It’s a seriously tongue-in-cheek effort.” (Just look at the campaign video for proof.)

But as of this writing, more than 7,500 people have already pledged their support to the tune of $2.4 million—“and we’re not even taking any credit cards for these pledges,” Herz says. “This means the momentum is there, and we’ve certainly struck a chord with people who care about independent beer ownership.”

Why should you care? For starters, every time you support an independent craft brewer—in other words, a small business—you’re doing your part to ensure its survival for one more day. “But beyond that, craft brewers put community over corporation, principles and people over profits, and beer over the bottom line,” says Herz.

They’re advancing the country and culture in exponential ways: In 2016, craft brewers donated $73.4 million to charitable causes, created 456,000 new jobs, and added $67.8 billion to the economy, per the Brewers Association. And here you thought you were just enjoying a nice buzz.

So go ahead, join the movement—you may very well make some history in the process. “Right now we’re focused on seeing if we can even get close to that number,” Herz says, “but if we did manage to buy ABI, the very first thing we’d do is set all the Clydesdales free.”
