American Craft Beer Week® (May 10–16, 2021) is our annual springtime salute to local beer and local breweries. It’s an opportunity to honor the hometown gathering places that give our communities their unique flavor, because here’s the glorious truth: Local Beer Is Better.

We invite you to toast the local businesses that have endured tough times to ensure our glasses, growlers, and beer fridges remain full. Head over to your local brewpub or taproom and enjoy a pint, or grab a sixer or growler to-go. Here’s to American craft beer!

Get ready. American craft Beer Week® Begins May 10

Independent Craft Brewer Seal

Seek the Independent Craft Brewer Seal when exploring the beer aisle. This seal indicates that the beer was brewed by an independent U.S. craft brewery, so you know you are supporting a small business who in turn supports your community, our country and our culture.

Are you a brewery?
