American Craft Beer Week will be recognized May 11-17, 2015 and offers an exciting opportunity for small and independent craft brewers and the community of better beer retailers to celebrate the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S. Plus, tens of thousands of todayâ€™s beer beginners, beer enthusiasts, and hard core beer geeks make time to toast the week. â€“ from the National Brewers Association
So yes, there is an actual week to honor, celebrate, and drink craft beer! 2015 is the 10th annual celebration of this special week. Your favorite craft bars and breweries will likely have special things going on throughout the week. Due South Brewing Co. will be participating in a number of events in South Florida. Click the image below to see a list of events.
This month's featured beer is Honey Vanilla Wheat.
Smooth and silky are the best ways to describe this seasonal beer. A special mash process is used to create a fuller body with a smooth mouthfeel. Real vanilla beans are added at the end of fermentation to balance out the sweetness of the honey. We only use the freshest Florida honey in this beer brewed to enjoy in the Florida sunshine while on a boat, at the beach, or poolside.
It will be available on tap at select retailers in South Florida and in the taproom on tap as well as in 6 packs of cans to go.
