ACBW at The Avenue Pub

The Brewers Association, the national non-profit association on behalf of the majority of today’s U.S. breweries, and publishers of, celebrate the culmination of these events each May with American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), The Mother of All Beer Weeks. A chance to introduce Beer Lovers to some of the finest new brews in the country!

American Craft Beer Week 2017: May 15-21

One of our two favorite weeks of the year! (the other week is Zwanze in September). This week we celebrate all things made by American Craft Brewers. Each night during the week has a theme, as we try explore and dig deep into our favorite styles. Then on Saturday we have a Grand Tasting, where we open up every American Craft bottle in the house and turn over all our drafts to American Craft Beer! There will be tasting tickets for most nights and for the Grand Tasting, but most drafts will also be sold a la carte. If you can’t come on a particular night, keep a sharp eye on our social media as many of these beers will go on a day or two prior to their event day and some will reappear for the Grand Tasting.
