It’s a Party in the USA

–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brewers Association:



For the 11th year in a row, the Brewers
has declared American
Craft Beer Week
(ACBW), the nationwide celebration of U.S.
small and independent craft brewers. The weeklong tribute provides
an opportunity for craft brewers to share their diversity,
creativity and passion for the beverage they love with the greater
craft beer community. From May 16-May 22, all 50 states will be
holding events including exclusive brewery tours, special craft
beer releases, food and beer pairings, tap takeovers and more to
celebrate the ever-advancing beer culture in the United States.



Monday, May 16–Sunday, May 22, 2016


In all 50 states.

Visit the official American Craft Beer Week event
on for a full – and growing – list of
local celebrations.



ACBW has been celebrated for the past decade. Since 2006, craft beer
fans have had a designated week to support their local brewery, and
beer businesses have had the opportunity to connect with their
customers and other beer lovers. Tens of thousands of beer
beginners, beer enthusiasts and beer geeks toast the week each year.

In 2015, more than 60,000 beer lovers across all 50 states were
also part of the ACBW Facebook
. With over 4,100 craft breweries now open—an
all-time high for our country—there’s even more to celebrate.
