American Craft Beer Week 2014

Nine years ago, the Brewers Association created American Craft Beer Week to help celebrate and honour the small and independent craft breweries across the country. With more than 2,700 craft breweries currently operating (and plenty more planning to open), America continues to celebrate its love and support for Craft Beer.

This year's American Craft Beer Week starts on May 12th and runs to the 18th.  Although the ACBW website has a list of events, I'd check with your local beer bars and breweries as many local events probably don't get added.
