American Craft Beer Week® (ACBW) starts Monday, May 14 and runs through May 20. If you haven’t already, now is the time to post your plans for the week on the official ACBW Calendar on CraftBeer.com. This is your week to toast the awesome variety of fuller flavored beers produced, distributed and sold by small American businesses, and enjoyed by an increasing number of beer lovers. Bring these beer lovers to your bar, restaurant, tasting room or brewery to celebrate!
We want to make it easy and fun for you to celebrate the Mother of All Beer Weeks. Resources are available to help plan and promote your ACBW celebrations.
