From May 13-19, craft beer connoisseurs and beginners alike will come together for the eighth annual celebration of American Craft Beer Week (ACBW). With the tagline “Big Week, Small Breweries,” ACBW is an opportunity to toast the more than 2,400 small and independent American craft brewers who continue to make the U.S. the world’s most diverse brewing destination. Once again, ACBW celebrations are expected to be held across all 50 states.
“The popularity of American Craft Beer Week is indicative of the craft beer renaissance that continues to captivate the U.S.,” said Julia Herz, publisher of CraftBeer.com and craft beer program director at the Brewers Association. “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.”
The brewmasters at the Fredericksburg Brewing Company invite you to participate in ACBW with them. They are celebrating this year with some seasonal favorites – El Hefe (this classic German style beer has a light banana, and spicy clove finish, with a hint of apricot) and the Balanced Rock Maibock (a strong, complex, copper-colored lager). And there’s always the chance that they’ll brew up a few small surprise batches as well!
Share a beer and visit with the brewers Monday - Friday afternoon of ACBW at 4PM on the benches outside the brewery on Main St. Fredericksburg. All week long check out our featured food special, made with the brewery’s craft beer.
