What do we mean by ‘small batch’? 什么是我们常说的small batch小众精酿?

We use the term ‘small batch’ frequently when describing our beers. What do wemean, and why do we use it?

自去年开始, “小众”这个词频繁的出现我们的推送中. 那它到底有什么特殊含义呢?我们为什么要使用这个词呢?

 

Small batch refers to small, limited brewing quantities.

Small batch“小众”主要是指酒厂规模小,生产数量有限。

 

To highlight just how small some of them are, we’ve stacked up some of China’s most popular beer imports against our Italian selection.

以我们最新进口的意大利啤酒和一些国内市场上的大众啤酒相比较:

And to take it back further – the total output for ALL Irish craft beer was expected to amount to 24,100,000 liters in 2016. Yep, that’s ALL craft breweries in Ireland. Spins a different light on those Nomad IPL’s eh?

回来再说说爱尔兰精酿啤酒产业  –  2016年爱尔兰全国精酿啤酒总产量仅为2400万升,没错,这个数字包含爱尔兰所有精酿啤酒厂

 

Curious?

好奇嘛?
