American Craft Beer Week is coming!
Daaaaaamn! I have been trying to update this site for the past few days but as the world has found out, Google has been having some issues with websites. I appreciate you coming back. And just for that, I am compiling some awesome events going on for the upcoming American Craft Beer Week from May 16-22. But first, how in the hell did this week of awesomeness get started? Check it:
Dunwoody Beer Festival and Doc Holliday Beer Festival in Griffin, but I am heading for Detroit tomorrow and have no idea what's in store for the week. Atlanta is nuts for beer, but how is the Motor City? If you know what's going on, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then, I will still happily post some other cool events going on in the A and research where the hell to go in the D! At least I will be back for the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival where I will (A-hem!) be a part of a panel discussing blogging in the culinary arts next weekend. Hells-yeah!
Last, a fist bump goes to all craft brewers, including homebrewers who really deserve a lot of love (In fact, stay tuned for my next edition of Ale's Homies as I interview an awesome woman in the beer world named Julie Baggett who knows a sh*tload about everything regarding the suds!) Thanks for making the world a better place with all of your brewing mastery. We need that liquid peacemaker!!!
For more info, check out the official American Craft Beer Week site for events in your area.
Side note: The Declaration of Beer Independence
By the way, do you want to see how serious we beer drinkers are about supporting the craft beer movement? Check out this Declaration of Beer Independence that was created for tens of thousands of beer supporters to sign back in 2009 here. Cool, ain't it?
