NBWA Toasts American Craft Beer Week

America’s 3,300 licensed beer distributors will celebrate the excitement that craft beer brings to the beer industry during American Craft Beer Week, May 13-19, 2013, a national celebration highlighting the culture and contributions of craft beer and the 2,400 craft breweries across the United States. “It’s hard to believe that there were only 40 some breweries in the U.S. in the 1980s, and yet today there are 2,400! America’s beer distributors are proud to partner with America’s craft brewers and serve as the vehicle to market for their brands,” said Craig Purser, president & CEO of the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA). “Because of today’s effective system of alcohol distribution, American consumers have the greatest choice and variety of beer available in the world.”
