brewers association readies for craft beer week

For the seventh consecutive year, the Brewers Association will recognize American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), a celebration of U.S. craft brewers across the country to be held May 14-20. Last year, all 50 states hosted official ACBW events, marking the largest-ever celebration of craft beer in the United States with more than 1,500 events at more than 1,300 different breweries and retailers.
 
In 2012, ACBW will once again provide an opportunity for small and independent brewers, craft beer enthusiasts and the community of better beer retailers to celebrate the ever-advancing beer culture and epicurean art form in the U.S. Events include exclusive brewery tours, special beer releases, multi-course food and beer pairing dinners, collaboration beers and much more.
