American Craft Beer Week Call for Events

By Andy Sparhawk

It’s time to start posting your events for this year’s celebration of American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), May 12-18. To help us make the week as accessible as possible, it’s important that brewers, wholesalers and retailers post their events early and often on the ACBW calendar.

Posting your events early ensures has time to help promote them, and allows craft beer lovers to make plans to attend. Posting your ACBW events is free and easy.
