You may not have ever heard of the Brewers Association (“a passionate voice for craft brewers”), but you should be thankful for them this week.  With the annually celebrated American Craft Beer Week, restaurants, bars, and breweries all around Austin are offering their very own local specials.

American Craft Beer Week is celebrated around the U.S., bringing together the community of brewers and craft-beer lovers.  The event gives brewers a chance to showcase their “art” and gives beer drinkers the perfect excuse to down a few cold ones.

Here’s a quick look at some of our favorite participating spots around town.

Not surprisingly, Brew & Brew is offering a beer and coffee pairing with their Ballast Point's Victory at Sea Imperial Porter, paired with the coffee it was brewed with, San Diego's Caffe Calabria.

Hit up the ABGB for their German Sparkle Party Party and Firkin Night.  Enjoy live music and the brewery’s own German Sparkle Party lager on Thursday, starting at 8pm.

Beer and a Shot at Drink.Well., featuring Buffalo Trace Bourbon and Hops & Grain's 'La Tortuga and the Hare.'

Craft Pride has a variety of Pint Nights on the calendar for this week from Buffalo Bayou, Infamous Brewing, Saint Arnold, Southern Star, and Austin Beerworks.

Head over to Red’s Porch for some South Austin beers and take-home pint glasses.

Banger’s will be tapping some rare releases from Hops and Grain brewery starting at 5pm on Friday.

Salt & Time has a special lunch offer on Friday featuring a new release from Hops & Grain.  For $13, you’ll enjoy a sandwich, beer and take-home glass.

So much going on, so little time.  Happy American Craft Beer Week!
