Ready to kick back with some genuine American craft beer? This is the week to do it.
For the first time in its six year history, American Craft Beer Week will see official events hosted in all 50 states, making it the largest-ever celebration of U.S. craft brewers. From May 16-22, rookie beer lovers and seasoned enthusiasts will raise glasses of their favorite IPA, amber, stout—or anything in-between—to honor the more than 1,700 small and independent craft brewers responsible for the American craft beer scene.
“There’s no doubt about it—nationally, appreciation for craft brewing has reached new heights of popularity,” said Julia Herz, a spokesperson for the Brewers Association. “With celebrations in all 50 states, American Craft Beer Week has truly earned the title ‘Mother of All Beer Weeks.’”
Beer lovers nationwide will have ample opportunity to discover a new brewed delight, with special beer releases, exclusive brewery tours, multi-course food and beer pairing dinners, collaboration beers and much more.
