Thousands to Participate in National Celebration During American Craft Beer Week

“The Mother of All Beer Weeks” Takes Place May 17-23

BOULDER, Colo.–Beer lovers, craft brewers, homebrewers, distributors and retailers are all making special plans for the annual American Craft Beer Week taking place across the country May 17-23. The “Mother of all beer weeks” celebrates small and independent craft brewers and is a chance to highlight all that the U.S. loves about craft beer. In 2006, the week became the largest national effort focusing on American craft brewers and remains so today.

“American Craft Beer Week has become a cherished tradition, making this annual celebration a great chance to toast craft brewers and to celebrate the advanced beer culture here in the United States,” stated Julia Herz, a spokesperson for the Brewers Association.

What If You Had A Party and No One Came?

Outside of your fan base of regulars there is probably a multitude of people anxious to discover you.

But unless you told them where you are performing in plenty of time to plan to see you, will they know? Can you expect them to come and see you? Do you have so many fans that you don’t care as if you sell an additional ticket?

Unless you told others of your newest release, how many copies can you realistically expect to sell other than to your die-hard fans? Is this number really large enough to merit a new release?

There are many other things that you would like to share with others.

Have we heard from you?

Email us. Let us know what is going on.
