In case craft beer happens to escape your mind during any other week of the year, American Craft Beer Week is here to remind you to enjoy one of the thousands of craft beers created throughout the year.
Celebrated May 11th through May 17th of this year, American Craft Beer Week celebrates all the hard work and endless hours that American craft breweries and their staff put in each and every year. As the ever-growing popularity of craft beer continues to rise, the industry sees new breweries and brewpubs pop up all over in what seems like the blink of an eye. Many of these spots open up after months or years of planning, and days filled with sweat, heart, soul, and a good beer every now and then.
That being said, it’s time to pay our respects to those who work so hard to create these craft beers for our enjoyment. Show your support and visit your favorite brewery, brewpub, liquor store, restaurant, bar, or venue, and get yourself a special craft in your glass (or 6-pack). Branch out, try something new, be it brewery or style, you’ll never know if you like it if you don’t try it.
Breweries and places that serve up craft beers will be catering to craft beer lovers throughout the week, hosting events, special tapping’s, and beer dinners and pairings. Now is the time to check your favorite craft beer watering holes event calendars, you’ll find lots of great things available for you to try. Get out there and enjoy some rare creations!
And to those who work in the craft beer industry, thank you. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. Cheers to you!
