As the main driver during this round of window period, craft beer has a larger room for development. There is a huge space for imagination in this market.

According to statistics of Hejun, at present, more than 5,000 craft beer brands aided by venture capital and industry giants have cracked the market, attempting to get a craft beer ticket in the so-called industrial window period.
