Many cities have an officially designated annual “beer week” which gives craft beer fans many options to celebrate, enjoy and share in the community and culture of CRAFT BEER and the ability to connect with breweries and retailers who bring craft beer to market.

American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), The Mother of All Beer Weeks, is being celebrated May 14-20, 2012. This is an opportunity for beer beginners, enthusiasts, and self-proclaimed beer geeks across America to toast the advancing beer culture in the U.S.

Total Wine & More is part of this celebration with tastings, beer classes, and other special events planned during the week in stores*.

  • You won’t want to miss our Hooray for IPA beer class, designed for hop lovers and beer thrill seekers alike. America’s love affair with hops cannot be satiated, but we’re going to try! Class is Thu 5/17  6:30-8:30PM, & Sat 5/19  3-5PM. Be sure to register with your local store⁺.
  • In-store beer tastings will be held in most stores throughout the week featuring various local and regional craft brews⁺.
  • Special events such as meet-the-experts and beer and cheese pairings in select stores⁺.

And don’t forget, Total Wine’s new website lists all of the beers available in your selected store location. Search for beer by category including Ales, Lagers, Special Releases and Seasonals, also by Country, Beer Style, Ratings, Price, and more. You can search for kegs, too. Remember, you can special-order kegs with the store for your kegerators/party needs.

Join us for our store activities, and raise a glass to American Craft Beer Week and to craft beer year-round!
