American Craft Beer Week runs from May 11th to May 17th, celebrating the culture and delicious concoctions of the craft brewing industry. Recognized by the U.S. Congress, Craft Beer Week is about breweries that produce under 2 million bottles and are independently owned. Over 150 breweries participated last year and just as many are expected to join in the celebrations in 2009.
