Beer weeks are giving craft beer fans across the U.S. ever-increasing options to enjoy and share the beverage they love. Beer weeks celebrate the culture and community of craft beer, and give breweries and beer businesses the opportunity to connect with the fans.
The Brewers Association, the national non-profit association on behalf of the majority of today’s U.S. breweries, and publishers of CraftBeer.com, celebrate the culmination of these events each May with American Craft Beer Week (ACBW).
American Craft Beer Week
May 12-18, 2014
ACBW will be recognized May 12-18, 2014 and offers an exciting opportunity for small and independent craft brewers and the community of better beer retailers to celebrate the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S. Plus, tens of thousands of today’s beer beginners, beer enthusiasts, and hard core beer geeks make time to toast the week.
The 2013 ACBW was celebrated by breweries and retailers in all 50 states. More than 50,000 beer lovers were part of the Facebook community with over 4,000 taking the Craft Beer Champion Quiz.
