A proposed taxonomy for breweries:

Brewery BudMiolob, Coors, etc.
Milli-Brewery Schells, Leinenkugles, etc. -- small regional breweries
Micro-Brewery Under 3000 bbls (legal definition?)
Nano-Brewery Non-comercial brewery making more than 200 gal/year
(These shouldn't really exist right?)
Pico-Brewery Brewery making between 31 and 200 gal/year
Femto-Brewery Less than 1 bbl (31 gal)/year production

So, where do the brewpubs fit? Micros?
How about Sierra Nevada? Milli?
