American Craft Beer Week is exciting, especially now with the enormous growth of the CT Beer scene. And, while we don’t need any week in particular as an excuse to go out and drink good brews, we love the focus and attention that this week brings. It’s a time to think about your beer, where it comes from, who makes it, and why you love it so damn much. For this year, American Craft Beer Week goes from May 11 until May 17 and we decided to gather up some great events in Fairfield County so that you can make the best of these days*.
