This week the nation will collectively celebrate the craft beer industry and the people that make it so special. American Craft Beer Week begins today, May 11th and runs through May 17th.

“This celebration, coordinated by the Brewers Association’s Craft Beer Program, is an exciting opportunity for craft brewers to commemorate their art and tradition with enthusiasts across the country” states the Brewer’s Association website.

I encourage local taprooms and breweries to leave details of any events planned for the week in the comments section below.

My plans for the week include visiting a favorite taproom, brewery, and getting together with fellow beer geeks for a bottle share. How will you be celebrating?
