Detroit Detroit Beer Week™ (DBW) promotes Detroit’s thriving craft beer culture by sponsoring events throughout an eleven-day period with the goals of attracting beer tourism, fostering knowledge of our regional brewing heritage, and serving as a showcase for Detroit’s breweries, restaurants, pubs, and other businesses with ties to the craft beer community.
DBW is produced by Liquid Table, a local organization whose mission is to promote awareness and increase the visibility of fresh, hand-crafted beer, wine, cider, mead and spirits through education and participation in community events, production of public and private events, and consulting services to the beverage alcohol industry.
DBW 2010, hosted over ten days, spotlighted over 40 events at more than 25 venues throughout the city of Detroit. Participating bars, restaurants, retail establishments, hotels, and sponsors all benefited from DBW with a reported growth in sales and a groundswell of demand for craft beer. This year’s expanded effort plans to include 200+ events at an estimated 100+ venues throughout Detroit, as well as the immediate suburbs, in an effort to encourage more participation from residents who rarely venture beyond 8 Mile Road.
Detroit Beer Week™ 2012 will kick off on October 18, 2012 and run for a full 11 days.
