Đọc đoạn văn sau và trả lời các câu hỏi:

American beer is probably, together with French beer, the most maligned beer in the world. Americans possibly care more for liquor and the French definitely like their wine. But now American beer is making a comeback; it's pushing foreign imported beers off supermarket shelves 5 and is even causing ripples in markets abroad. And the secret to all this is the microbrew.

Inspired by a campaign for real ale in Britain, which was successful at keeping mass-marketed beers from destroying the small, local breweries, 10 the microbrew started in the 1970s on the west coast. However, in the 80s, affluence brought about a change in spending and in taste, this time for the more expensive foreign beers. But now the micros are back.

15 Basically all the microbrew is a more flavorful, speciality beer, not mass-produced but produced in smallish quantities by a small brewery and often sold locally. Samuel Adams sells in New England, Redhook Ale in Seattle and Brooklyn Lager originally of course from New York, also sells in Japan. They are spreading their small wings.

20 People are learning that beer can come in a myriad of tastes and colors, and it can be fresh and inexpensive, just so long as it is a microbrew.
