The third annual Madison Craft Beer Week hosts more than 100 events celebrating craft beer in and around Madison.

The 2013 Madison Craft Beer Week builds on a highly successful second year, which saw thousands of craft beer lovers enjoy more than 150 events at more than 60 venues.

Madison Craft Beer Week runs from Friday May 4 through Sunday May 13, 2013 and features a wide variety of events highlighting Dane County’s vibrant craft beer culture. MCBW 2013 will feature beer dinners, festivals, rare bottle tastings, cheese pairings, brewery tours, classes, movies, Friday Fish Fries, and more – there is truly something for everyone, from novice to connoisseur.

Madison Craft Beer Week promotes Madison’s thriving craft beer culture, enhancing beer knowledge and appreciation, by sponsoring a ten-day (two weekend) countywide festival that attracts beer tourism, fosters knowledge of our regional brewing heritage, and serves as a showcase for the Madison area’s breweries, restaurants, pubs, caterers, retailers, entertainers, and other businesses with ties to the craft beer community.
