American Craft Beer Week: May 12-18
Just in case you need a reason to have a cold one, the Brewers Association has declared this to be American Craft Beer Week.
The May 12-18 celebration of American Craft Beer Week recognizes the part brewers play in communities around the country. The Brewers Association estimates craft brewers donated more than $20 million to charitable causes in 2007.
Breweries around the country have scheduled special events to mark the occasion. The Brewers Association is also launching Savor: An American Craft Beer and Food Experience in Washington, D.C., from May 16-17. The event features 48 craft brwers and focuses on matching food and beer.
