Every day is a good day to drink locally made craft beer, but the Brewers Association trade group has dubbed this American Craft Beer Week, so there’s a little added incentive. And there’s no better place to dabble in the best offerings from around the country (and the world) than Max’s Taphouse, home to one of the best selections anywhere.Things kick off tonight with highlights from the so-called “haze craze” of murky IPAs. Starting at 5 p.m., Max’s will be pouring more than 30 different kinds, including muddy, flavorful brews from locals Manor Hill Brewing, RAR Brewing, Burley Oak Brewing Company and Stillwater Artisanal.
The following three days will feature beers from a particular brewery: Diamondback Brewing on Tuesday, Firestone Walker Brewing on Wednesday and Hysteria Brewing on Thursday and Friday. Max’s will close out the festivities with a to-be-announced event Saturday and Sour Sunday featuring–you guessed it–sour beer.
If you can’t make it to Max’s, there’s still plenty of ways to celebrate American Craft Beer Week, like swinging by the taproom of your nearest brewery or picking up a six-pack from a small brewery at the liquor store.
