American Craft Beer Week Video Transcript:
“America’s craft brewers are artisans that, rather than working in paint, photography, or some of those mediums, they’re working in beer.” Tim Myers, Strange Brewing
“I think American Craft Beer Week gives us an opportunity to really celebrate all of our supporters throughout the country. Cheers to you for supporting your local breweries. Cheers to you for taking the time to support an American product.” -Julie Weeks, Boulevard Brewing
“The fans of craft brewers really have a huge opportunity to come and see what we’re all about during American Craft Beer Week.” -Scott Smith, East End Brewing
“Craft brewing grew as a grassroots movement and, like so many grassroots movements, it is driven by passion. American Craft Beer Week gives us that focus point to step back and say ‘Let’s celebrate!’” -Mark Edelson, Iron Hill Brewery
“The craft beer revolution started in America. I think that that’s something we should all be proud of and so having American Craft Beer Week to celebrate it every year is just a great event, great idea.” -Kevin Blodger, Gordon Biersch Brewery
“It’s not from equipment. It’s not from machines. The craft beer is made from artisans and it comes from the earth. When people get that? That’s, to me, American craft beer.” -Sean Wilson, Fullsteam Brewery
“I think a lot of people are scared of the unknown, so they’ll just stick with what they know and what they know is what’s on TV and advertised. And so, it’s a way to break down the barriers and you can help them do that because they’re coming to events like this.” -Matt Van Wyk, Oakshire Brewing
“Craft brew industry is really the idea of having a vision, taking a risk, building something from the ground-up, and doing it a lot of times with your friends. It’s a great reflection of the grit and integrity it took to build this country from the ground-up.” -Bryan Simpson, New Belgium Brewing Co.
