The likes of Mikkeller, Stillwater and Beer Here are client brewers. They don’t actually own their own brewery, and as a result brew at various different breweries, often in many different countries.



They are also sometimes referred to as gypsy or cuckoo brewers.

You may also be talking about a ’contract brewer’, which isn’t exactly the same thing as a ’gypsy brewer’. A contract brewer is a brewery (often a fairly large one) where a different brewer makes his/her beers, either because they don’t have their own kit or because they don’t have the capacity at their own facility. The F.X. Matt Brewery in Utica, NY is a good example. A number of breweries have their beers brewed at F.X. Matt, such as Brooklyn Brewery and Haffenreffer.



For some beers on RB it is clearly noted the beer is contract brewed (for others it isn’t). Pretty Things, for example, is made at Buzzards Bay. See here: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/pretty-things-american-darling/107013/



I hope this information helps.

Technically, I think the OP is referencing an Alternate Proprietorship arrangement. With Mikkeller, they would be the client/tenant brewery and, for instance, de Proefbrouwerij would be the host brewery.
