The Source:  These are locations that are owned or operated as if they are owned by a brewery.  This includes brewpubs, brewery tasting rooms, and restaurants run by a brewery or in conjunction with a restaurant operator.

Restaurant:  These locations feature craft beer but also have an extensive food list.  They are generally sit-down affairs with mostly table settings with few to no bar counter seats.

Bar:  These locations are predominantly bars.  Food options are limited or non-existent.  While food is available at some locations, assume that you will not get a full meal or only bar food will be served.

Craft Beer Pub:  Most people are familiar with pubs and these are no different.  Predominantly British style pubs, they can include German and Japanese style pubs.  They have a mixture of counter and table seats with no pressure to eat.  Food options may be varied but tend to be limited.

Craft Beer Cafe:  These are predominantly cafes that have craft beer.  They do not focus on many food items and can be considered a daytime bar.
