(WXYZ) - Just in case you didn't have it on your calendar, next week is American Craft Beer Week!
May 13th-19th you will see those who know beer, and those who would like to know it better, come together for the 8th Annual celebration of American Craft Beer Week. For us in Michigan, you have a nice choice of locations to choose from.
A first for the celebration: a planned nationwide toast to take place at 8PM on Thursday, May 16th.
Everyone will toast with their favorite beer!
Small brewers and craft brewers will participate all across the country as they discuss and exchange information about their most loved beer.
Craft beer enthusiast Julie Herz says, "The popularity of American Craft Beer Week is indicative of the craft beer renaissance that continues to captivate the U.S." She goes on to say, "This week is about uniting for a common cause: support and celebration of our nation's small and independent brewers and the millions of beer lovers who have helped evolve an industry and put the U.S. on the brewing map."
