Craft Beer WeekPrint
This week, May 16 through May 22, 2016 marks the 11th year of the Brewer’s Association “American Craft Beer Week”, a nationwide celebration of U.S. small and independent craft brewers.
The week-long tribute provides an opportunity for craft brewers to share their creativity and passion for great beer with the greater craft beer community. From May 16 – 22, all 50 states will be holding events including exclusive brewery tours, special craft beer releases, food and beer pairings, tap takeovers, and more to celebrate the ever-advancing beer culture in the United States.
The American Craft Brewer’s Week has been celebrated for the past decade. Since 2006, craft beer fans have had a designated week to support their local brewery, and beer businesses have had the opportunity to connect with their customers and other beer lovers. Tens of thousands of beer beginners, beer enthusiasts, and beer geeks toast the week each year.
Currently over 4,100 craft breweries are now open across the United States—an all-time high for our country.. Most people in the U.S. have a craft brewery within 10 miles of their residence. While overall beer sales were down 0.2% for 2015, Craft Beer Sales was up 12.8%!
When you find that perfect beer at your local craft brewery, you are going to want to bring it home with you so you enjoy it at home or at a friends home. Depending on local laws, many craft brew pubs allow you to do just and can either sell you a Growler or they are happy to fill one that you bring in with you.
