Next week, May 16-22, people from all over the country will be celebrating American Craft Beer Week.  In fact there are official events being hosted in all 50 states for the very first time (very cool). The event was designed to honor the more than 1700 craft breweries currently operating in the U.S.

“There’s no doubt about it—nationally, appreciation for craft brewing has reached new heights of popularity, with celebrations in all 50 states, American Craft Beer Week has truly earned the title ‘Mother of All Beer Weeks’.” – Julia Herz, a spokesperson for the Brewers Association.

  1. Tiff @ love, sweat, and beers Reply

    I’ll be enjoying a few samples at my local Total Wine before getting a six-pack of something new. Gotta love craft beer week!

  2. Great stuff! I am from the sunny island of Singapore. We have quite a nice microbrewery scene here and I am quite sure that some of them will send representatives to the event.

    What do people actually do there? Just drink and be merry? Or is there is a higher purpose? Like discussing brewing styles, etc?

    • Thanks for stopping in. Each event is a little different since there are over 50 of them throughout the week. On their site the Brewers Association says “Beer weeks celebrate the culture and community of craft beer, and give breweries and beer businesses the opportunity to connect with the fans.”

      There will be a lot of drinking and a lot of discussion on brewing styles and how each beer is made.
