Celebrate! It's American Craft Beer Week In Myrtle Beach

Do you love craft beer? If so, you're not alone. Often described as "pure happiness in a glass," craft beer is the fastest growing segment of the beverage industry.

This week is a very special one for craft beer lovers. It's American Craft Beer Week and it runs through May 22.

Craft beer is not your father's brew in a bottle. The Brewers Association, a group whose members are small and independent American brewers of craft beer, defines craft beers as "beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation."

The best place in Myrtle Beach to observe the week set aside to honor the awesomeness of craft brews is right in Broadway at the Beach at Liberty Brewery & Grill, the area's first microbrewery.

Liberty Brewery & Grill prepares craft beers that "celebrate the bounty of the American farmer and pre-Prohibition style brewing methods." At the restaurant's entrance, a replica of the Statute of Liberty — decorated with the the colors, stripes and stars of the American flag — welcomes guests and sets the tone. This is the brewery that invites "your hungry, your thirsty and fun-loving" to enjoy the pleasures of award-winning draft beers made right on site. But don't miss Liberty's delicious comfort foods like burgers, wings, mac & cheese, and pizza.

Liberty is celebrating the week with a variety of specials. Wednesday (May 18) you can grab a classic Angus beef burger and a Liberty Core Brew Pint for just $10. On Thursday (May 19) at 4 p.m., stop by for the tapping of Firkin, a dry-hopped grapefruit red ale. At 4 p.m. on Friday (May 20), a new beer will be introduced that's a collaboration between Liberty and another Myrtle Beach brewer, New South Brewing — and there will be a live band performing.

On Saturday (May 21) the excitement reaches a high point for craft beer adventurers when Liberty stages its "unique beer takeover." Specialty flavors will be served, including Thomas Creek Banana Split Chocolate Stout, Lagunitas The Waldos' Special, Ballast Point Watermelon Dorado, Terrapin Poivre Potion Saison, Coast Blackbeerd Imperial Stout, Freehouse The Mullet and more.

On Sunday (May 22), the weekend winds down as Liberty offers all of its core brews at $1 off.

As the Brewers Association puts it so well, "each glass of craft beer displays the creativity and passion of its makers and the complexity of its ingredients." It's versatile because it's "great on its own and also enhances the taste of food when paired."

If you're a beer connoisseur — or just enjoy a glass of beer every now and then — this is a great week to stop by and join in the celebration and introduction of new beer flavor creations at Liberty Brewery & Grill.

You may even want to start planning your Craft Beer celebration for 2017, because by the end of summer 2016, another great brewery, American Tap House, will be joining Liberty Brewery & Grill on the quest to provide guests with unique taste experiences.
